Thanks for coming to the hop! This week’s challenge comes for the amazing Jenna Da Sie:
Create an A to Z post for writing. Ex: A= authors, what type of author are you? B=books, how many book have you published? C=cover photos, how do you choose your cover photos? Etc… (make up your own)
A –Author- What kind of author am I? Hopefully a good one.
B-Books? What kind do I write? Historical and Romantic Suspense.
C-Cover Artist – Jena Brignola – she is the best!
D-Delve deep. Feel it and then communicate it.
E-Editing. At least twice for every book. Sometimes up to four times.
F – Final draft and ready to go. Always get nervous over this!
G-Goofs – always try to avoid those.
H-Help. I get by with a little (or a lot) of help from my friends and editors.
I-as in me. I write therefore I am.
J-Just sit in the chair and write.
K-Know the characters. Very important.
L-Locations? England, Scotland, America and now, Morocco
M-Murder and mayhem. It does keep things interesting.
N-Novels published? So far 9. #10 is still being edited.
O-Over and over which is how many time I read a manuscript before turning it over to my editor
P-Proofreading. Essential. I hate errors in spelling and grammar.
Q-Quitting – Not an option!
R-Research – Always, constantly and as thoroughly as possible!
S – Stars. All 5’s all the time. Wouldn’t that be awesome!
T-Time period? Anywhere from present day to the 1500’s.
U-Under the gun when the book is due.
V-Vivid – what I try to evoke in descriptions
W- Why do I write? Because I have to. The characters make me.
X-Xerox – how I used to copy my manuscripts
Y-Yes! When I know it’s ready to go and I am ready to let it.
Z-Zone as in ‘in the zone’-which is where I need to go to clear my head and come up with plot ideas.
That was fun. Hard, but fun. Now let’s hop over and see what the fabulous C.L. Marcolini came up with.
