Thanksgiving also marked another anniversary for me - four years of blogging! Who knew I would stick with it this long? Certainly not me. I wasn't sure I'd have fun doing this, but I am. And as long as I keep getting comments, I'll keep blogging!
JeffO from The Doubting Writer has tagged me on this post HERE. Not sure what that means, but I’ll play along and answer the following questions (because it deals with writing and, plus, I had nothing else to blog about - haha!).
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON? I am working on the third book in my vampire romance series (currently titled “Blind Temptation”). I’m barely half-way through with the first draft. I should probably come up with a name for this series, but nothing has come to mind yet.
HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM OTHER WORKS IN ITS GENRE? I have no idea. I’ve not read all vampire romance novels (although I probably should, huh?). This one is a little different (maybe) since the heroine is the vampire (who was turned at the young age of 17, 300+ years ago) and the hero is a blind mortal (and 39). Yes, it’s challenging writing from the POV of a blind person, but I’m having fun with it.
WHY DO YOU WRITE? This is a trick question, right? I mean, what writer doesn’t LOVE writing? If I didn’t love it, I’d still be working in accounting. That certainly paid better! At least…so far. J
HOW DOES YOUR WRITING PROCESS WORK? Yikes! Do I need to have a process? I’m a pantser. I get a rough idea of a story and I write. Next day I edit what I’ve written and then add to that. I follow this process until I reach THE END. I’ve tried to write without editing, but I’m finding that impossible to do (especially as I get to know my characters). Besides, it’s a great way for me to get back into my story. I’ve never started a new book until I’ve finished the current one, but I have stopped to revise/edit previous works (or write short stories). I might not have finished every short story I’ve started, but I have finished every book I’ve ever started, so I have that in my favor, huh? So, is that a process? You tell me!
I’m supposed to tag other people, but I don’t do that. If you want to play, consider yourself tagged!
Is your house all decorated? Have you started your Christmas shopping? How many of you are already finished? I hope to get the tree up today and then maybe get some shopping done. We’ll see how I do.
P.S. It appears my magic shirt lost its mojo. The Rams lost. :(
