Library Time

cj Sez:  Gallbladder surgery went fine. Four new holes in my tummy and a ladder of bruises up my arms from missed IV attempts, but fine otherwise. Not so much, my house.

The lightning storm came and went and took with it my cable network (as in computer and TV). That was on the 17th of August. Mediacom assures me a service person will arrive to assess the problem on August 27th, sometime between 8 a.m. and noon. Ten days. Until then, I am unplugged. So today I'm in the Technology Room at the library to input a few words into Lyrical Pens. Just for you, guys. Just for you. Oh, okay. I had to bring back some books and am using the opportunity to satisfy my craving to surf the Internet.

Let's pretend I'm interviewing you writerly types. I'll ask a few general questions (like the ones we use for our guest bloggers), and you write down your answers. I think you'll be surprised at what they reveal about your writing life.

1: Tell a tidbit about yourself that you haven't revealed in another interview. It can be somethig as simple as a favorite memory, pet or food.

2: The first line of a novel is often called THE all-important hook that draws readers (and propsective agents/publishers) into the story. How did you come up with yours?

3: On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing and where?

4: Who/what inspires/motivates you to keep on keeping on?

5: What do you read for pleasure?

6: What do you consider the most important element of a story?

7: If you were to host a dinner for your favorite authors, who are the six writers you would include? They don't have to be living.

If you care to share your answers with me, I'll make your responses part of one of my future posts.

That's all for now. Till next time, you-all guys keep on keeping on, and I'll try to do the same.
