Q & A
Here are the questions, as well as my answers.
What’s your favorite writing style?
Honestly, when I first started writing, I would have said 3rd person point of view as one of the biggest problems for me in writing and as a person is sharing myself. Yet, I have come to appreciate the 1st person perspective of writing as it allows for more thought along with introspection.
Who’s your favorite author?
Do I have to really choose just one?! I have enjoyed a variety of authors works. No, not all of them write as Christians, but I have found some valuable life lessons in their works. Some of the most memorable for me are as follows:
- Bram Stoker
- Edgar Allen Poe
- Sarah Arthur
- Priscilla Shrirer
- Beth Moore
- R. A. Salvatore
- J. K. Rowling
- J.R. R. Tolkien
And so many others!
What’s your favorite time of the day to write?
Honestly, any time I can find a quiet moment or inspiration. Sometimes both! This can be at any hour, day or night.
Where do you like to write the most?
The quiet of my bedroom, or amidst others as they go about their lives.
Are you a planner or a pantzier?
Would you believe me if I told you I am a bit of both?
What are your go-to snack foods for a writing streak?
Healthy things as well as the sweet or savory tend to do it for me. Each is always accompanied by a cup of hot coffee.
What’s your favorite style of music for writing?
Classical music or any song that might stir some kind of deep thought or emotion.
Outlines: yea or nay?
Definitely a yay! They keep me on task.
Do you ever kill of characters?
As tear jerking, painful, and heartbreaking as it can be…yes.
What’s the hardest thing about writing?
Believing in myself. I fall in love with the characters, plots, as well as places but often lack the confidence that others might do as well. When it comes to my religious studies…I often ask, who am I to share what I find, feel, or believe with others?
Why do you write?
Quite simply put, because I must…because I crave nothing to do nothing else.
