Q: What are your writing supply ‘must haves’?
A: Well, my ‘must haves’ include my laptop of course. I also use a cordless keyboard and mouse for when I’m lazy and feel like sprawling on the couch while I write. I also use speech to text software for when I’m feeling extra lazy.
Q: Who inspired you to write your first story?
A: Most definitely my father. He was my high school English and creative writing teacher. I’m not a strong writer, but he made me feel like a goddess of the written word crazily enough.
Q: What do you do when you are not writing?
A: I watch a lot of TV. Mostly shows I’ve already seen. I don’t like surprises and that is why I write my own stories. I can map out my own little world and I know exactly what is coming next.
Q: Do you ever experience writer’s block?
A: I’ve found plotting out my story beforehand helps big time. But on occasion I do get stuck in holes when I deviate from the script I’ve made. At which point I cry and complain to anyone who’ll listen. I’m not a fun person to be around when I’m stuck on a plot.
Q: Do you start planning out a story with plot or characters?
A: I like to start with plot. Most of my favorite authors start out with character, but I’ve found a storyline is a better place for me personally so I have some direction. Once I have a one sentence overview for the conflict, then I start hashing out character profiles.
