So I did an interview and a blog for my recent blog tour, but the content didn’t appear on either of the sites. So guess what? I’m using it here.
What do you wish men understood about women?
In most cases, the current fad of full, mountain-man beards is NOT a good look. You may think it makes you look manly, but women just think about how hot and itchy it must be. And if it’s unkempt? Blehck! When Princess Leia told Han Solo that she’d rather kiss a Wookie, she was being sarcastic. We want to see your handsome faces. Unfortunately, with No-Shave November upon us, the situation can only get worse.
Do you work on only one book at a time?
Yes. When I’m deep in a book, the plot and its characters, it’s very hard for me to back out and jump into something else.
Who is your favorite fictional couple? I can’t narrow it down to just one, but I can name a few off the top of my head. Wolf and Mary from Linda Howard’s MacKenzie’s Mountain, Batman and Catwoman, and Mal and Inara from Firefly. I like the yin and the yang.
Do you have a favorite quote that sums up how you feel about life? I had the hardest time trying to figure out how to answer this question until I looked up and saw the poster that hangs over my desk. It says “Destiny is not to be waited for: it is to be achieved.” I think that sums it up pretty well.
Do you set daily writing goals? Word count? Number of chapters? Do you get a chance to write every day? I have set goals when I’m coming up against a deadline, but normally I don’t. It makes writing feel very mechanical to me, which isn’t a good thing. I also need to have a chapter or scene fully plotted out before I sit down to write. I can’t plot and write at the same time. My brain doesn’t work that way.
What do you like better, Twitter or Facebook? Why? Twitter. It’s fast and easy, and they don’t do all the creepy prying into your personal information.
