ACK! I missed last month! Sorry all. Things haven’t been the greatest and I’ve been rather distracted. Can I blame the puppy?
Okay, probably not. And he’s not that small anymore. Or that floppy. He does still try to get on my lap sometimes though.
The New Year always brings that time of reflection and looking forward. It can be kind of nerve wracking.
I really don’t know what 2019 will bring. I know things I have scheduled like being in Southern New England in March and Boise Book Fest in June. I’m working on staying on track with Conjured Defense. And if you’ve seen my newsletter, you’ve seen the next hint.
Also, all my books are on a Kindle Countdown deal on Amazon for $/₤0.99 through January 7th.
IWSG Question of the Day: What are your favorite and least favorite questions people ask you about your writing?
Oh gosh, I don’t know if I have a favorite. I love having conversations with people either about the books, the process, or even just some general topics regarding writing.
My least favorite is probably “how long have you been writing?” Wait! It’s likely not for the reason you think.
So, my dislike of that question is I typically don’t know the time frame that is being asked. Most of the time I start answering how long I’ve been just writing, which is most of my life, but many times people are looking at how long have I been putting out books or working on this series, which is a much smaller time frame. For me, all that time just writing for myself is a part of the whole story. It’s just not what I’m currently presenting so I have that “awkward” moment in realizing my mistake.
It’s like all the side story work I do with the series, but no one else has read it. Except for that one I put out on Wattpad a couple years ago.
