My 30 Days of Writing-Day 21: The Kids Are Alright!


Sorry for the double post. Like I wrote earlier today, technical glitch + Mass Effect distracted me until I had to hit the hay. Time to catch up: 21. Do any of your characters have children? How well do you write them? Principal characters with kids? None, as of yet. I guess I haven’t tried […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 20: Character vs. Character


Indeed. 20. What are your favorite character interactions to write? (Sorry for the late post. WordPress glitched combined with playing to much Mass Effect. Double the post today then.) Best characters interactions? Put two characters in a room and let them go at. Verbally. Through dialogue I mean. Not making myself very clear, am I? […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 19: Playing Favorites Part 3


Yeah, I know, he belongs in yesterday post. Well screw it! Now on to the show. 19. Favorite minor that decided to shove himself into the spotlight and why? I think the honor belongs to Ms.  Patricia Wilson, Patty to her friends.  She came in through her boss’s door trying to make a good impression […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 18: Playing Favorites Part 2


The above, a total non sequitur, but funny as hell! On too more questions! 18. Favorite antagonist and why? I think I answered this one before, but since I’m committed to this meme, I’ll give it a go. According to Wikipedia an antagonist is: An antagonist (from Greek ἀνταγωνιστής – antagonistes, “opponent, competitor, rival”[1]) is […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 17: Playing Favorites Part 1


17. Favorite protagonist and why? Who indeed…. If I had to be honest (and I don’t have to but), I’ll say it was Anthony Mendoza. He does come close to being a Marty Stu, except that my first book is not fan fiction. I injected enough of me in him, that he has become a […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 16: Love Makes the World Go Round


…the Bend. So past the midway point we reach question numero 16, which is: 16. Do you write romantic relationships? How do you do with those, and how “far” are you willing to go in your writing? a. Yes b. Now that is the real question, isn’t it. I don’t consider myself a “romantic” writer. […]

You know the drill, 30 Questions in 30 Days. Welcome to the halfway point o My 30 Days of Writing, ladies and gents. Now on to the question of the day: 15.  Midway question! Tell us about a writer you admire, whether professional or not! I think you already know the answer to this one. […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 14: Cartography Fail!


14. How do you map out locations, if needed? Do you have any to show us? The short, short answer? No. That doesn’t mean I don’t use maps. One of the best tools to have on your computer as a writer has got to be Google Maps. I used it a lot while writing my […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 13: Culture Wars


What is culture anyway?

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 12: Bring out the Legos!


Ha! Okay, my brain is a bit fried from the heat, so yeah. Okay this here is Day 12 of the meme and the question is? 12. In what story did you feel you did the best job of worldbuilding? Any side-notes on it you’d like to share? Best? I think the best category falls […]
