This week’s questions come from Beth Carter:
1. What’s your favorite aspect of novel writing? Dialogue? Setting? Conflict? Narration? Explain.
My favorite aspect of my writing is discovery. I love following my characters around and finding out what happened next. Especially in the beginning phase, where the plot hits roadblocks and I sometimes have to back up a bit and look at a different road. Inevitably, my characters know where we’re going, but I’m usually in the dark. (A lot like real life.)
2. How do you choose the setting for your plot? Are they always similar settings or does it vary? (i.e., small town, big city, castle, etc.)
My settings tend to be all over the place. I enjoy world building. As most of my settings are made up anyway, I just have to tap my imagination. In my latest novel (coming this winter from Soul Mate Publishing) I start on a starship, deep in space, spend time with a wondering futuristic circus, and travel to a ‘back-teched’ planet similar to medieval Earth.
3. I’m a big six-word memoir fan. (Hemingway even wrote one.) Describe your writing day using just six words.
Coffee, games, Internet, inspiration, write, interruption.
