Sincerely Me…

sinsundaySo I thought since I have interviewed hundreds of authors over the years on this blog, that you would enjoy hearing me answer some of the questions I have posed to them over the years.

Each week I will answer one or two questions, if you want you can leave your own questions for me in the comments and I will try and answer them in a future blog post!

Do you ever get writer’s Block?

My standard answer for these sorts of questions is.. “Does the sun rise in the East and set in the West?” In other words oh hell yes I do! All the bloody time and it frustrates me to no end. I have all the words when I am out on the road driving to and from work, running errands, cleaning, doing other things and then I run to my screen to write them all down and they vanish like wisps of fog in the morning sun.

I also went through a two year period where my muse refused to speak with me at all. She claimed she was on hiatus but I believe that she was mad at me for pursuing other real world things rather than feeding into her. HA! It was frustrating as all get out. I cant tell you how many times I was crying to my editor that I was washed up after two books and how sad I was that I couldn’t talk to my characters anymore.

I am sincerely glad that we, that is the muse and I, got that all sorted out. It was not something I would like to revisit any time soon.

One thought on “Sincerely Me…

  1. Do you write dialog that is seems real and fits the scene, even if it is not grammatically correct?
