GUTGAA - Meet & Greet

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME!!!

GUTGAA - Meet & Greet

-Where do you write?
Different places, but mostly in my office.
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see?
Empty candy wrappers :)

-Favorite time to write?
Midnight until....!

-Drink of choice while writing?
Juice or Soda! neither which are good for me.

-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence?
Most times I need complete silence while I'm writing. I wrote a post about the ear phones that I wear.----> {{here}} However, there are times when I listen to music and it's either classical or movie soundtracks. My favorite is Chopin.

-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?
My current wip has been pushed aside until I've finished my final edits for GRAPE BUBBLEGUM (out - Oct 19 Woo Hoo)
But my inspiration for my current wip was a Christmas card catalog. There was an image of an old farm house covered in snow. The story took off from there and it is a doozy! It's a little SciFi with a dash of fantasy Can't wait to share it!!!

-What's your most valuable writing tip?
Keep Writing!
Never give up!
&
Tune out the naysayers!

  24. When I read snow, I realized just how many of my stories feature a snowy landscape. Or how I use it to torture my characters. I love that you have a dash of scifi and fantasy.
