This writers’ meme was stolen from Write on Wednesday.
What’s your favorite genre of writing?
creative non-fiction, essays, I want to be Erma Bombeck when I grow up
How often do you get writer’s block?
often, I have a tendency to feel like I have nothing of value to say, and when I do have something to say, that what I have to offer will be offensive to those that I care about
How do you fix it?
I write it in my journal or I just swallow what ever it is that I’m most passionate about and then I do a meme or post pictures in my blog instead of being brave (note: I definitely do not recommend this to others)
Do you type or write by hand?
both, the more emotional the topic the better it is to write by hand, but technical writing is always composed right on the computer
Do you save everything you write?
not everything, but a pretty big percentage, I like to come back to it later, even the junk, and see if it inspires something else later on
Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it?
see above. I go back all the time, it’s amazing what I find that I hadn’t noticed before
Do you have a constructive critic?
unfortunately no. I’d really like to find that. I have plenty of critics and I have lavish praisers, but no constructive feedback
Did you ever write a novel?
not yet, one of these days.
What genre would you love to write but haven’t?
What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will?
horror, I don’t like reading it, so I doubt I would write it
How many writing projects are you working on right now?
no idea, 2 or 3 that i actively work on, but there are thousands of projects on my harddrives just waiting for me to come back and finish
Do you write for a living? Do you want to?
I would love to make a living from writing, but it’s not paying the rent yet
Have you ever written something for a magazine or newspaper?
Have you ever won an award for your writing?
some blog awards, I don’t know if that counts
What are your five favorite words?
hope, silly, assiduous, engage, lounge
Do you ever write based on your dreams?
absolutely, maybe not the entire dream, but there’s a kernel in there that gets the ball rolling
I’m a sucker for happy endings, I read to escape, I like reading to make me feel better, not worse
Have you ever written based on an artwork you’ve seen?
I haven’t tried that yet but it sounds like a good way to battle writer’s block
