Whitney Carter from Invisible Ink nominated me for a Liebster Award! Thank you, Whitney!
Be sure to check out her awesome blog.
- Answer the eleven questions your nominator posed to her/his nominees
- Pass the award on to eleven others
These are the questions she asked us to answer for the award:
- What keeps you writing when you have writer’s block? I can’t say that I’ve ever had writer’s block. I have this condition where I am perma-inspired. But sometimes, I am inspired to write in a certain genre, so I try to channel that inspiration whenever I can by working on the story that my mind is telling me to go with. That being said, if I have a book launch deadline or an editor waiting, I do my best to stay on track.
- Most writers have a literary counterpart—a character from their stories who reflects themselves. Tell us about yours. Gosh, that is a loaded question and I love it. I suppose Julia from my second novel Followed reflects me quite a bit – in looks and in character (Though, of course we are not exactly alike). You will be able to read about her once the book launches in October. ;)
- What are your passions? Writing epic stories (Of course), good movies, fashion, music, art, fitness, nature.
- You’ve had a fight with your significant other and you want to fix things. What do you do? I will have to decline on this one as I have no significant other, nor do I want one for a long time.
- What’s one injustice you see in the world that you would fix in a story? Cruelty.
- If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? I would like to have more hours in the day to write.
- What’s important to you at this point in time? Writing, travelling, staying fit, having fun with friends, learning new things.
- Who is your hero/heroine? For the hero, Jack Aubrey and his crew from Patrick O’Brian’s series (Obsessed!!). For the heroine, Baby Doll from Sucker Punch. (Random combo, I know)
- Do you make it a habit of telling others what you thought of their work, even if your experience wasn’t good? It is actually hard for me to correct people when it comes to writing. I try to be objective, but it can be tough sometimes.
- What is good will? Doing unto others as you would have them do to you.
- What would it take for you to make friends with an old enemy? I honestly don’t have any true enemies. If someone I didn’t get along with so well in the past came up and genuinely wanted to make things right, I would be all for it. I have my faults, so I can’t expect other people to be perfect, either. Life should include second chances, I think.
And now, here are my nominees. Congrats to everyone!
