Happy Tuesday! So, this is my first week joining this amazing group of romance writers on this blog hop, and I'm pretty excited to get started! This weeks questions come from author J J Devine.
1.When someone finds out you’re an author, how do youhandle the statement, “I have a story you should write”?
My answer is almost always, "Oh yeah?" Everything has something to say. Everyone has a story. To dismiss anything to me is arrogant. When I write, there is a bit and piece of someone I know, or something I've seen, heard, done. Every one of them. So although I don't think I am up to the job of writing someone's life story, or their fantasy, I listen because it may flip a switch that can take me down a road toward something.
#2 Do you write what you read?
For the most part, yes. I do. I read a lot of contemporary romance, and that's what I write. But, my favorite genre is historical romance, and I do not write that. Yet. One day, I hope.
#3 People often mistake the lifestyle of a writer as glamorous, give us the scoop, what about your lifestyle would shock your readers?
I'm not sure what would shock them, but my lifestyle is certainly not glamorous in any way, shape or form. I'm a fucking hot mess. I live paycheck to paycheck, claw, bite, maim and lie to get time to myself to actually write, and most of the time, I'm too tired to do any sort of actual "living." So yeah... the life of a writer, at least a newbie indie like me, pretty much looks like chaos and stress.
So, yeah... there you have it! Thanks for stopping by. Go check out : Mishka Jenkins https://awriterslifeformeblog.wordpress.com/ to find out what she has to share! Also, follow the other writers at #lovechatwrite ! See ya next week!!
