About My Writing
When (time of day) I write: Early is best. Before checking email, the net, or blogging. Spurts in the afternoon and evening.
Writing soundtrack: Different for each book and scene. I spend time searching for the right music but it’s worth it.
Character Inspirations: Characters are strictly from my mind. They spring up with all their flaws and strengths.
Plot Inspirations: News and world events.
Setting Inspirations: My characters tell me where they want to be. Funny, but it’s generally someplace I’ve been.
Plotter (carefully plot books) or Pantser (write from the seat of my pants): Plottser. Some of each.
