Questions from Lisa Woods!! Tagging Jaime Johnesee, TW Brown, and Billie Sue Mosiman for the next round! (apologies for the gratuitous exclamations!!! I haven't had my coffee yet.)
What are you working on right now?
A couple of things, actually. One is a longer version of the flash fiction short 'Scarred' that was included in the Cover Stories Euphictional Anthology a couple of years ago. Another is a story I simply refer to as 'Metatron', and the third is a fourth installment of the Immortal War Series.
How does it differ from other works in its genre?
I'll be able to answer that when all of them are completed. :)
What experiences have influenced you?
Just sitting in a room full of people mostly. Or hanging out in the train station bar and watching people walk by.
Why do you write what you do?
For the challenge.
How does your writing process work?
Process.... define 'process'. My writing process is akin to Jackson Pollack in that I throw words at the paper and write what sticks.
What is the hardest part about writing?
Writer's block. Ugh.
What would you like to try as a writer that you haven't yet?
Comedy. I'm getting there, though.
Who are the authors that you most admire?
Jaime Johnesee has the top slot right now. She's a miracle.
Who are the new authors to watch out for?
Jaime Johnesee, Melissa Leet (when she finally releases those awesome stories she's been writing and hoarding), and Bryan Hall.
What scares you?
Clowns and spiders. Worse if they're giant alien clown spiders.
