I made a discover this week about a blog hopping event, Gearing Up To Get An Agent, that has been organized by Deana Barnhart. Happily, I am just squeaking in under the deadline for signing up. I will be out of range of the internet for most of my weekend up North, but highly anticipate my return Sunday night so I can begin my blogging journey of exploration.
As a means of introducing ourselves to our fellow bloggers-as a meet and greet event, we have a series of questions to address. They are as follows, with my brief answers:
-Where do you write? I am either at my laptop in the living room or the pc in our "office."
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see? Directly to my left, my cat Simon is wedged between me and the arm of the chair I am sitting in as I am on the laptop in the living room right now. On the tray stand next to beyond him-there are two notebooks, a pen, and to television remotes.
-Favorite time to write? Early morning or late at night.
-Drink of choice while writing? Water.
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence? I prefer silence.
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it? The storybook I had published was based on an incident with my nephew. Most of my stories are influenced by real events and people in my everyday life.
-What's your most valuable writing tip? Write. Even when you don't feel like, sit down and write.
