GUTGAA Meet And Greet

04 Sep

I write horror, supernatural, paranormal novels. I have been writing since high school. I love reading and writing about things that go bump in the night.  I have a degree in Media Arts. I love learning about places I have never been. I’m also an admin for the facebook group PARANORMAL UNIVERSE:The True, The Believable, The Unknown
Where do you write?At my desk in my office, at the library, or at a local coffee shop I like.

-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see?My writing notebook.

-Favorite time to write?I like to write in the early afternoons and evenings.

-Drink of choice while writing?Diet coke or water

-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence?I need complete silence. Tried writing while listening to music before it’s too distracting.

-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?My inspiration for my latest manuscript about vampires came from a talk about vampires and werewolves that I had with my mom.

-What’s your most valuable writing tip? My most valuable writing tip is that if you have a passion to write and tell a story then do that no matter what anyone around says.

    Nothing beats a plain old low-tech notebook. Blank paper is inspirational all by itself. See you around GUTGAA!

    Hi, thanks for stopping by. So true about the notebook. It is easier to carry a notebook around to jot down notes, scenes and ideas.

    Nice to meet you, Dianne. I agree with you about the music. It's hard for me to get started without it, but at a certain point it's just a distraction. Best of luck with GUTGAA!

    Hi, nice meeting you. My drink of choice is the same as yours. Diet Coke or water. It all depends on whether I want caffeine or not. Enjoy GUTGAA!

    Hi Lauren,
    thanks for stopping by. Nice to meet you as well. I know what you mean about the music tried to use it and found myself singing along with the songs instead of writing. Good luck with GUTGAA!
