Good Morning everyone!
So for today, I'm going to answer the questions that were left as response to last weeks post!
Chrissy asked: Do you listen to music while you write? If so, what's your favorite writing music?
My Answer: Sometimes I do, Sometimes I don't. It depends on my mood. But when I do it often turns out to be Disney Music or Christmas Music (doesn't matter what time of year it is). Unless I have found a couple of songs that perfectly fit what I'm trying to write - then I have those on repeat. I spent an entire day listening to the songs from that one musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer ("One more time, with feeling" I think it's called) because her song fit the mood I was trying to capture for my character :)
DA Cairns asked: Do you sometimes feel like you just don't belong? What is at the core of your desire to write?
My Answer: I have often felt like I don't belong, in many situations. I have often been in places where I look around and thing "What in the world am I doing here?" Not just physical places either, but emotional places and educational places, etc. etc. I think we all kind of feel like that at some point. We kind of have to find our niche. However, unlike many writers, I am not so much an introvert. I am very much a social butterfly and because of this I do have an easier time communicating, dealing with crowds, being in the middle of things, and pretending I'm belonging, even when I don't feel like I am.
As for the core of my desire to write - I have always, always loved making up stories and telling them. I love giving life to characters and seeing how people respond to them. I love the idea that I can contribute something (hopefully in a good way) to the world by giving them something good to read and escape into.
Well those were the questions I was asked today. Remember, you can ask me any question at any time. My goal is to get you guys to know me, and for me to get to know something about you too through your comments and questions.
Next week, I think I'll show you a bit of my love for Disney .... :)
