If you found me via Feona Riplee’s wonderful blog ( http://fionariplee.com/blog ) , or you’re just starting your Romance Weekly journey here, welcome. Some probing questions and fun answers lie ahead as you make the rounds.
This week’s questions come from Carolyn Spear (http://www.carolynspearromance.com/blog ).
Here are my answers:
1. If someone could observe you writing without you knowing they were there, what strange practices might they catch you doing?
I had a whole thing written about how I don’t think I have any unusual practices, and while I was sitting here editing it, I realized I do. I pull my hair when I’m editing. I reach to the back, grab a hunk and just pull it up and down while I’m reading. I hadn’t realized I did that until just now.
2. Other than a creative outlet, how does writing benefit you?
I think my writing has given a focus to my retirement. It would be easy to spend all my time reading, playing computer games and putzing with my garden (summer) or crafts (winter) with no real direction, but my writing is what really gets me up in the mornings and going.
3. How do you feed your muse?
The things I mentioned above, reading, computer games, gardening, and crafts, all help to feed my muse. Also traveling to fun places with my wife helps to inspire my writing. All that and of course…wine!
I hear you out there. Yes, I have spies all over the interwebs. You’re wondering what the other authors of Romance Weekly answered. Start (or continue) the tour by visiting the wonderful Brenda Margariet at http://www.brendamargriet.com/blog .
