Thank you Ryan Graudin for agreeing to be interviewed on my blog! :)
- Sad ending or happy ending?
I’m a sucker for happy endings, but I do think it’s important that they be believable. And/or realistic. Different stories also demand different endings. I’m a big proponent of hope, and try to infuse it in any ending I write, whether happy or sad.
- Laptop or Desktop?
I prefer laptops because I like switching up my surroundings on occasion. I find my creativity can be sparked by just getting out of the house. Or even escaping my office. Working from home means I get cabin fever. Laptops make it possible to treat this very serious ailment. And get out in the sunlight. And see people.
- Long chapters or Short chapters?
Mine usually end up being medium length. Around 8 or 9 pages. Though I do sometimes enjoy throwing a few punchy, short chapters in there. For dramatic effect and all.
- Urban Fantasy or Dystopian?
One of the very first manuscripts I worked on (which is now mercifully shelved) was an Urban Fantasy. I had a soft spot for them. Though, as a reader, I usually don’t care what genre it is if the story is crafted well enough.
- Movies or TV?
Over the years I’ve become much more of a TV watcher instead of movies. Doctor Who, LOST, Firefly and BBC Sherlock are among my all time favorites. Any Marvel movie that hits the theatres is an automatic must see for me, and I’m very excited for all of the superhero television shows that are emerging!
- Coffee or Hot Cocoa?
Give me that caffeine. I drink lots of coffee. Two or three cups black in the mornings. When I want to lay off the caffeine but still want a hot drink I resort to herbal tea. Hot Cocoa is more of a rare treat.
- Facebook or Twitter?
I’m more partial to Twitter nowadays, but the two social media sites play two different roles for me. I’ve had a Facebook since college, and use it on a much more personal note. Twitter is where I engage with readers and other writers. I love the bookish community!!!
- Bookish Superpower: Speed Reading or Speed Writing?
I would love to speed write. There’s so many stories I want to tell! I’m told I’m a relatively fast writer, but I don’t feel that way when I’m only churning out 1000 words a day.
- Pink or Blue?
In most cases blue. Though I’m always in awe of Laini Taylor’s hot pink hair. (I’ve tried purple myself! I don’t know if I have the cajones to pull off the pink!)
- Print books or ebooks?
Print books. Always and forever.
