So Rory, at The guy called bloke ,has kindly tagged me to answer a few light-hearted questions about Hocus Pocus, witchcraft and spell-a-foolary in the spirit of Halloween!
This bubbly light- heartedness was originally created by Kim Chance and Destiney Murtaugh.
The Questions in Question are as follows:
Sarah, Mary, & Winifred Sanderson: Being a witch is hard, but so is writing. If you had magical, witchy powers what aspect of writing or what part of the process would you magically skip over?
Wow! A magic power. I would love to have the power to proof read the post as I write. Would save me lots of time.
Max and Dani: What relationships tend to be at the core of your books? Friends? Family? Romance?
I write what I feel. But not doubt that what I have read during my days does creeps in. Maybe in form of knowledge or some fantasy.
Amuck, Amuck, Amuck!: How do you approach the chaos that is drafting? Are you a plotter, a pantster, or a combo of both?
I am a spontaneous writer most of the times. If I think too much or plan too much it’s often left sitting there for weeks.
I Put a Spell on You: How do you deal with book ideas that want to pull your focus from your main WIP?
I do get distracted, by the stuff around me, mostly the notifications pings from my phone. To counter that I sit by myself and try to write in one session. I just write posts, never longer than a couple of pages so it’s not difficult to do that.
Thackery Binx: Things aren’t always what they seem–Think back to when you first started writing to where you are now. How has your process transformed from then to now?
As I started to write my blog a couple of months ago, I don’t know that there has been much of a change. But a friend of mine said that my writing has improved with practice!
My Lucky Rat Tail: Do you have a writing ritual? If not, what are some of your favourite writing tools?
I usually start to write after having my daily walk. That gets the creative juices flowing. And of course a large coffee always helps.
Boooooookkk: Favorite Writing Craft Book?
No book, but a nudge from Google to search for words, that’s pretty often.
Another Glorious Morning: Do you enjoy writing in the morning? Or do you prefer the evening, like Winnifred?
Usually when I am alone. Could be any time of the day.
The Black Flame Candle: What’s one of the biggest mistakes you’ve made so far in your writing journey? OR What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned?
I am learning my craft yet. Making mistakes on the way, I am sure. So my takeaway from this would be to work harder and to work daily.
Billy Butcherson: What’s a trope that most people hate, but you love and would like to see “come back from the dead”?
As with others before me, I don’t know what to say? ( don’t completely get trope!)
Come Little Children: Songs that give you a “hypnotic” focus when writing? I.e., fav songs on your writing playlist
I put on the TV in the background at very low volume, just for a bit of white noise. Music distracts me from writing.
Happy Halloween, Everyone!
