Here are the questions Crystal asked me...
1. What is your favorite childhood memory?
Riding my bike all over our neighborhood, with friends. Then a slumber party I had in 6th grade...it became the talk of the school, for awhile.
2. Which of your characters do relate to the most, and why?
Ghost, in my fan fiction story...because he is psychic, an empath, and has ADHD. He is quirky and strange, and vulnerable.
3. If you had to pick an Avenger to save the world, which one? Justify.
I had to look these up, as I had no idea who they were. After reading about them a bit, I'd
pick, Havok. He has the power of the plasma blast, he can enter parallel worlds, and he
was recruited by Captain America for the Unity team.
4. What does the Fox say?
I think he is like 'Swiper' on the kids show, "Dora the Explorer". He is a fox that gets in
trouble for swiping things. He says... "Awww Man!" when he gets caught.
5. What is your favorite book, or movie...or both?
Book = "Lost Souls" by Poppy Z. Brite (I write my fan fiction on this book)
Movie = "Snakes on a Plane" or "That Thing You Do"
6. How do you combat writer's block?
Can't say I've ever had this, but for those in-between times, I just free-write pages of
whatever comes to mind.
7. What is your favorite writing beverage?
Hot coffee, and iced tea.
8. Have you ever attempted NaNoWriMo, and if so, were you successful?
No, never tried it, but I did do the OctPoWriMo during this past October. I did finish this
and published a poem for every day of the month. (on my other blog ... http://teleportingweena.wordpress.com
9. Do you have a writing routine?
Not really. I write whenever and wherever. I take a spiral notebook with me when I go
out, and get a lot done while sitting in waiting rooms. At home, I like to write late at night.
10. What music do you write to, if you do? If not, what background sounds fill your writing
I usually have it completely quiet, as having ADHD, I get too distracted with the tv on
When I do put on music, it is always either the Eagles - the very best of, or the Steve
Miller Band - greatest hits 1974-78. Sometimes, I'll put one song on repeat, for hours.
