- What's your favorite genre to write?
- What genre do you think you'll never write?
- Edits - love 'em? hate em?
- Favorite place to write.
- Favorite time of day to write.
- Keyboard or pen?
- Third or first person?
- Past or present?
- Day or night?
- Pantser or plotter?
- I never say never
- Edits are a part of the job and they make the book better, so I love that. The parts where I was a moron and screwed up? Hate that.
- in my sunroom
- morning, but I'm most productive in the evening.
- keyboard. My hands have trouble holding a pen for any length of time.
- I prefer past.
- I'd rather write during the day, but I tend to have to write in both, to make deadlines.
- Plotter. 100%. I have outlines and cards and notes and scenes written out completely.
- Paranormal. I am so into bears right now! Werebears, naturally.
- Probably hard sci fi or high fantasy. I can do space opera but the others require so much world building!
- Every editor I ever have would say I hate them. I get easily frustrated, but I do love it when a book is so much better for an edit
- coffeeshop or my couch
- early evening seems to get the most done
- keyboard. I only longhand when there's no other choice
- third. I loathe first person unless it's a very specific type of historical.
- both please. I like to write historicals and I adore contemps
- Day. I sleep at night these days
- Plotter. I used to pants, but my books are better now that I plot them out
- I love to write paranormals, because I get to make the rules!
- I can't imagine a genre I wouldn't take a stab at, with the exception of regencies. There are too many tight and fast rules associated with it.
- I consider edits a necessary evil.
- In my office or at Starbucks.
- At night, when it's quiet and I have no interruptions.
- Keyboard! I can barely read my own handwriting when I write quickly.
- I've written in both. Sometimes the story dictates what tense I need to use.
- Past tense, almost always. I find present tense awkward to write.
- I've always been a night owl!
- I was always a pantser, but lately, with a giant to-do list and deadlines, I've found plotting out the book helps...although some times things take a left turn and I need to go with the flow.
- contemporary - whether I'm doing BDSM or sweet/with kids
- horror - I just don't have the touch although I enjoy reading it
- edits are a necessary evil
- my writing chair
- I probably get my best work done after dark
- keyboard all the way
- third person, I find first person a challenge
- past, again I find present tense more challenging
- pantser all the way - I tried plotting once and it was a disaster
