All of this week’s questions have to do with writing (hence, the title of this post: A Writer’s Meme)

Here are your questions (and my answers).

What’s your favorite genre of writing?

I love to write historic fiction. Seriously, I cannot imagine writing anything else. Not that I've tried, though.

How often do you get writer’s block?

Right about the middle of my wip. I start out with a whole lot excitement in the start...know where I want to go and how it will end...but it is in the middle that I struggle to keep up the pace with.

How do you fix it?

By temporarily going a little nutty...and watching my favorite movies. After a good freak-out and a pep talk from my husband, I get back to work.

Do you type or write by hand?

I write character sketches by hand and brainstorm with pen and paper, but everything else is strictly written on my Mac laptop in Scrivener. Oh, how I love Scrivener.

Do you save everything you write?

No, I do not. That's why my husband so wonderfully forces me to hook the computer up to a time machine and back everything up. He knows how foolish I am.

Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it?

Of course!

Do you have a constructive critic?

My Grandma, actually. She cannot do anything without a book within reach, so I figure that if she likes what I write...then I'm golden. ;) But I do have critique partners that are not family. None of them compare to my Grandma.

Did you ever write a novel?

Five of them. One is with an agent with publishers mulling over it. Here's hoping is survives!

What genre would you love to write but haven’t?

Mystery, maybe?

What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will?

*giggles* Erotica!

How many writing projects are you working on right now?


Do you write for a living? Do you want to?

Yes! And one day I will actually pay bills with it. ;)

Have you ever written something for a magazine or newspaper?

Not for a newspaper.

Have you ever won an award for your writing?

One day I will.

Do you ever write based on your dreams?

I'd be crazy to do that! My dreams play out as if they belong to a drug addict.

Do you favor happy endings, sad endings, or cliff-hangers?

I'm not sure. It really depends on the plot and characters. But I do know that I really don't like cliff-hangers. Only in TV shows. ;)

YOUR TURN! Don’t forget to copy and paste this meme to your blog. I found this meme at the Faith Writer's Blog. Don't forget to link me as your contact. :)
