This meme started at the FaithWriters’ blog – and then I saw it over at JJ’s (Joanne Sher’s blog) and couldn’t resist swiping it to tag in my own answers, so here goes! ^_^ (Btw, on a personal note, I haven’t posted an FW conference 2010 post yet, because um, my brain is reviving. Is that a good excuse? It’ll be up soon, promise!) Now, onto the meme!
What’s your favorite genre of writing? Christian Fantasy. Something out of this world that includes Jesus is my goal.
How often do you get writer’s block? Um, only when my brain is fried. Which happens about twice a year at the end of each school semester, because I refuse to give up on my creative projects and thus end up with a fried brain as a result from completely exhausting it.
How do you fix it? Sleep. Preferably for about a week, until 2PM every day.
Do you type or write by hand? Both – I write by hand in the morning and once I’m parked in front of my PC, I’ll be typing. Sometimes if a scene bugs me, I’ll write it out by hand and then type it up. The process helps to sort things through.
Do you save everything you write? Yep. I even have a file labeled “Bloopers” for each month/year. It’s actually funny when I reread some of what’s there.
Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it? Yes. Often times, it has had time to develop into an entirely new monster and I can trap it with a–oops, sorry.
Do you have a constructive critic? Yes. But I’ve been sworn to secrecy because of-OW! *rubs head* sowwy.
Did you ever write a novel? Technically five are written. One is a WIP, waiting for me to finish it. Others are in various stages of editing/rewriting and waiting to hear back from my beta-readers.
What genre would you love to write but haven’t? Well, I’ve tried, but I haven’t actually really done anything, genre-wise. I’d love to try comic-book writing, does that count?
What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will? Horror! Terror! And other equally scary things. This is because I am too good at scaring myself when I’m completely involved in a project and that’s a bit, um, yeah. Leaving that there. ^_^
How many writing projects are you working on right now? Um, WIP novel wanting to be finished, First revised chapter needing to be sent, planning for NaNoWriMo2010, Weekly friday Fiction posts-leading up to a new serial that does NOT have anything to do with fantasy/superpowers. *shock*
Do you write for a living? Do you want to? I don’t at the moment. But I would love to. Currently, I’ve been focusing a lot more on my school/family than writing.
Have you ever written something for a magazine or newspaper? Yes – for an online newspaper.
Have you ever won an award for your writing? Yep.
Do you ever write based on your dreams? Yep. My dreamland and my daydreaming sides of my brain are pretty closely connected. Besides, in my dreams that’s where I see my stories in full color, HD. ^_^
Do you favor happy endings, sad endings, or cliff-hangers? Cliff-hangers! Because then there’ll be a sequel and then there will be possibilities for all kinds of endings!
And now it’s YOUR turn! Respond below, put your answers on your blog, or both. Enjoy.
