Got this from fellow writer Lynda Schab’s blog. Feel free to take this and put it on your own blog–with your own answers of course
A Writer’s Meme
What’s your favorite genre of writing? Historical fiction
How often do you get writer’s block? Too often. Probably every three or four chapters.
How do you fix it? Listening to music that reminds me of my book, watching the book trailer I made for it (gives me a little creative boost every time) and eating lots and lots of chocolate.
Do you type or write by hand? Type. Although I will write if the inspiration comes when I’m somewhere with no computer access. That’s why I always carry a notebook.
Do you save everything you write? YES.
Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it? Definitely. I still plan on re-working the novel I wrote when I was twelve.
Do you have a constructive critic? Yes, my entire critique group as well as a few writer friends online who graciously read and critique my chapters.
Did you ever write a novel? Yes, at age 12, and working on another one now.
What genre would you love to write but haven’t? I’d love to write an epic fantasy although I don’t know if I’d be able to do all that worldbuilding.
What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will? Mystery/suspense. For some reason my mind just can’t come up with good mystery ideas and my suspense scenes always feel fake.
How many writing projects are you working on right now? 1 mainly, although I do occassionally go back and add some ideas for two others that I have.
Do you write for a living? Do you want to? No, but I do freelance a little and I’d like to eventually write for a living. Or at least supplemental income
Have you ever written something for a magazine or newspaper? For a student newspaper back in college. No magazines yet.
Have you ever won an award for your writing? One a few years ago for FaithWriters Writing Challenge. It wasn’t an award exactly but it did get printed in an anthology.
Do you ever write based on your dreams? Not yet, but I do have one idea that I wrote down from a very vivid dream. Had another one the other night, but I couldn’t remember it long enough to write it down so that one is now lost to the dream eaters.
Do you favor happy endings, sad endings, or cliff-hangers? I like happy endings best (probably why I’m going to be a member of RWA soon ) although two of my favorite books have bittersweet endings.
