All of this week’s questions have to do with writing (hence, the title of this post: A Writer’s Meme)
What’s your favorite genre of writing? Mystery/Suspense
How often do you get writer’s block? Hmmm…usually around chapter 4 or 5 of my novels, but never on articles. Always have a plethora of ideas.
How do you fix it? Going to the movies with my refillable bucket of popcorn and a large Diet Coke.
Do you type or write by hand? 60 seconds of writing by hand = major writer’s cramp. I love my laptop!
Do you save everything you write? Losing an entire book taught me a valuable lesson. Now I use Mozy.com to backup everything.
Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it? Sure!
Do you have a constructive critic? My fabulous crit partner, Susan, who sings my praises and kicks me in the pants at the same time.
Did you ever write a novel? Yep, it’s with an agent now.
What genre would you love to write but haven’t? I really don’t think there’s a genre I haven’t tried at one time or another.
What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will? Except fantasy. Not my bag.
How many writing projects are you working on right now? 4, I think.
Do you write for a living? Do you want to? I want to and I do!
Have you ever written something for a magazine or newspaper? Yes and No, respectively.
Have you ever won an award for your writing? A few…
Do you ever write based on your dreams? Not yet.
Do you favor happy endings, sad endings, or cliff-hangers? Depends on the story. And my mood.
