Jeannie Campbell tagged me a while back, so here is my attempt at answering the first half of the questions.
1. What's the last thing you wrote? What's the first thing you wrote that you still have?
The last thing I wrote was a quick edit of that Mistletoe piece posted on Monday from my current wip. The first thing I wrote (not including school projects for English class) are still tucked away deep in my hope chest, written in Pitman shorthand that I can no longer decipher.
2. Write poetry?
Almost never. Poetry is the most concise writing I've ever read, and I have issues with that. LOL
3. Angsty poetry?
4. Favorite genre of writing?
Contemporary Inspirational Romance
5. Most annoying character you've ever created?
I'd have to go with Katrina's mother, Martha, in my very first novel. She is one obnoxious character at times, even though she means well.
6. Best Plot you've ever created?
That would be the plot in my second novel, My Gift. I can't really explain it without giving the ending away, other than that it's a twist on a frame story.
7. Coolest Plot twist you've ever created?
Oh, my, I think it might be that I actually did send one of my characters off to Cambodia when it seemed as though the whole mission trip would fall through. That extended that book for more pages then expected.
8. How often do you get writer's block?
I don't know if it's writer's block as much as a needed writer's rest. Sometimes my fingers just need a break while my brain keeps going.
9. Write fan fiction?
Okay, I'm going to look stupid here, but what exactly is fan fiction? Fantasy Fiction? If so, no, my brain doesn't seem to work that way, it can only handle earth as it appears to be.
10. Do you type or write by hand?
I type, but have been known to scratch out scene thoughts on any spare piece of paper that happens to be in reach when a thought comes to mind.
11. Do you save everything you write?
Most definitely. I create a new copy each day.
12. Do you ever go back to an idea after you've abandoned it?
Of course. My ideas often come as mustard seeds. I write the bit that surprises me and then my brain and creative spirit waters it sporadically as I'm working on something else, and eventually it's time for that seed to sprout and start growing in leaps and bounds.
13. What's your favorite thing you've ever written?
Sadly, my very first novel is still nearest and dearest to my heart, but it was so badly written that it's taking me forever to revise and get it written well. But I can't seem to leave that one alone, whereas the ones after it, I have been able to set aside for years without stewing over them.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas with The Babe's Spirit swirling around you in awesome wonder. May His presence bring you much peace and joy, friends!
Surrendering to Him,
2 Days until we widely celebrate Jesus's Birthday on Christmas Day around the World!
