Wednesday Plans, and Blog Visits

I’m blog visiting today, with Sarah Grimm, who’s hosting me for a discussion of my writer self, what I’ve written, what I’m writing. Wednesday seems to be a great day to feature writers and advice on writing.  Angela Quarles posted a great blog about getting over under around or through whatever is stopping us from writing more.

I’m looking forward to more blog visitors. I find I like the interview idea best, but I’d like to mix up the questions.  What do you think about: What’s your elixir of choice (to keep our creative juices flowing) and also celebration of choice (champagne, Kahlua, mixed drink, chocolate?)  First romance book, First book to make an impression on you, Your writing schedule, Your writing environment, What inspires you. If you use a pen name, why?? Favorite genre to read/write. What book has wowed you recently?

A friend added:

How much of YOU is in the stories you write?
Are you a planner or a pantser?

Where do you get your back story? Do you ‘write what you know’? You’ve written your first draft. Now what? What’s the process before you publish?

What questions would you like to answer, or to see answered by other writers?  Who’d like to be the first up for visiting? Price of admission is still a recipe, and if I can ever get a good handle on my extra pages I’m going to save the all the recipes in one place.

  1. One of my earliest interviews was by the terrific author, GG Royale, who went to my blog and noticed that i usually use the small i when referring to myself. She asked me why in the interview and i was really impressed since no one ever asked me that before. This is by way of saying, asking personal questions that only apply to that author are very nice in interviews. : )

  2. I’m game. And in return, I’ll give you a recipe for Dutch Appeltaart that has my husband and his brother all of a-flutter. Just like mother used to make.

  5. All great questions you posed, Mona. I don’t think you’ll be at a loss for interviewees. I love hearing how other writers knew they were called to write, how their first story came about, and how they went about getting published the first time. Here’s to seeing a generous increase in your blog visitor numbers!
