Happy Monday! Today's a meet and greet for the annual GUTGAA kick off! What is GUTGAA, you ask?
Gearin' Up To Get An Agent 2012, hosted by the ever charming Deana Barnhart.
There's still time to sign up if you're interested, just click on the link for Deana's blog and head on over.
If you're new to my blog, then welcome! If you're an old friend, welcome back. Deana wants us to share a few things about ourselves so we can all get to know each other better.
1. Where do you write?
In my office. Yes that's right. MY office. All mine and I lurve it. I work from home as well, so I have a wrap around desk with my work laptop on one side, and my writing (and everything else) laptop on the other. It's my place to get busy.
2. Quick, look to the left of your writing space. What do you see?
Head shot cut outs of my kids with paper cut out bodies attached to them. (They're hanging on the wall.) And a picture of three girlfriends and me in Vegas when we were 26. That was a trip worth remembering (just wish I could remember more of it.) lol
3. Favorite time to write?
That varies. I prefer early morning at the crack of dawn, or just before. But I'll take whatever I can get, because beggars can't be choosers. And since I'm a mom of a 7 and 6 year old, as well as a part time employee for the nation's largest airline, I'm always begging for time. ;)
4. Drink of choice while writing?
COFFEE! and water
5. When writing, do you listen to music or need complete silence?
SILENCE IS GOLDEN. But I do listen to music for artistic motivation... especially for those love or action scenes. Or if my worldbuilding needs a kickstart.
6. What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?
Initially, I was inspired after watching Hugo. I love the idea of a character who lived in a train station. With my story The Desiree, I created a character who lived in a vintage movie palace.
7. What's your most valuable writing tip?
Have at least one critique partner who is smarter than you. ;)
Thanks for stopping by! How would you answer these same questions? If you didn't already blog about it, leave them for me in the comments. And have a great week!
