Questions for the Meet and Greet
First A Little Bit About Me (I'm never good at writing these things).
I'm a twenty-year-old studying Writing and Literature at a little college in NY. I've never been good at math, but I love reading as long as it isn't required reading. I enjoy the smell of grass, making wishes, and daydreaming. I recently discovered that I love to watch Sex and the City, but my all time favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I love horror movies, scarey TV shows, anything that will scare me. I just like being scared. I'm afraid of heights and the dark, which I know totally contradicts the previous sentence. I'm a lover of words and art. My dream career would be to be a children's and young adult author and create pretty things part time.
-Where do you write?
I just wrote a post about this. Most of my writing takes place in my room, lying in bed. Sometimes I write on the couch or at the table.
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see?
A wall. It's light green.
-Favorite time to write?
I like to write in the afternoon and at night. My morning hours are spent browsing the web.
-Drink of choice while writing?
Tea. My favorite is Lipton. It comes in a yellow and red box and I have it with three scoops of sugar and milk.
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence?
Sometimes I listen to Pandora, but nothing too loud. I like listening to the soundtracks for movies because the music usually doesn't have lyrics.
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?
My latest manuscript was inspired by another manuscript I'd been working on earlier this year. It was a southern gothic, and I wanted it to be more YA.
-What's your most valuable writing tip?
My favorite quote: "Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there'll always be better writers than you..." -Neil Gaiman.
Thanks for stopping by and reading.
