I’m so excited for the start of this bloghop! So off we go.
-Where do you write? In my living room. I HAVE to be comfortable. I love to sink down into my cushy couch with my laptop.
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see? I can see outside, to the lake behind my house. Yep. I love it. I wish there were alligators in it, but I don't think there are :(
-Favorite time to write? When it’s quiet. For me that can be after I get the kids to school or late at night. I’m not picky.
-Drink of choice while writing? Ice water. I know it’s boring, but I try and make up for it by writing exciting books :)
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence? Silence, but sometimes I will have the TV on low in the background.
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it? Ooo…good question. I’m currently working on a sequel to my first MS, so I already have fleshed out characters and a detailed world. But my inspiration is to take these characters who have already been through so much and push them as much as I can. What is their worst fear? Make them confront it. The story practically writes its self.
-What's your most valuable writing tip? I have so many :) Here is one that has helped me lately. Find great critique partners! Other writers who are willing to tell you the truth about your writing are crucial. I LOVE mine! They deserve more than a simple thanks.
Awesome start to GUTGAA, Deana! Love you girl :) Can’t wait to see everyone’s answers.
