-Where do you write?
I would love to snuggle in a chair big enough for my 5'9 frame to get lost in, with my laptop propped on my lap and my favorite drink (white chocolate mocha, soy milk 1 pump vanilla, 1 pump toffee nut, extra whip cream with my shots ristratto(i think that's spelled correct)) Thank God for Starbucks. Since I don't have that chair, I will curl up in my bed, on my couch, and yes at my local Starbucks, and allow my fantasy to spill out onto my computer.
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see?
Since I'm now sitting on my couch a place where I write often, to my left is my dinning room table. A place where I also creat, quality time over dinner with my family. My supportive husband and 2 of our 4 children, 2 girls and 2 boys, 1 of which is at our dinner table often.
-Favorite time to write?
Sunrise, the freshness of a new day not only inspires me to write in general but the WIP I'm working on today reminds me of sunrise, the way the clouds run away or around the beckoning sun, as I inhale taking in a new day I am energized and can spit out 10,000 words:)
-Drink of choice while writing?
As I stated earlier, Starbucks is my drug of choice.
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence?
My mind is like the hamster in a cage running on that little wheel, it's constantly moving rapidly. Yes, I listen to music and watch movies. If it's too quiet I can hear the squeaking:)
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?
My love for all things mythical, and magical. Each day I get the chance to hide away in my fantasy world. I love it, I don't have to wait on my favorite show, I can create one in my head whenever I want.
-What's your most valuable writing tip?
Get It In!!! My biggest problem was editing my WIP, before it was completed I spent a year revising, over and over, and a year later I found myself still revising. Here in year 2 on this MS, I have decided to just write don't edit until I have completed this Ms, and then I will tackle editing 1 chapter at a time.
For me, I work best if I don't focus on misppellings grammar and such just get the entire idea in.
