I’ve been tagged


The fabulous Tales from the Mind of Kristian tagged me to participate in this interesting tag. You know I love books, movies, and writing, so THANK YOU!

The Writers Tag was created by Lorraine Ambers and Ari Meghlen for writers to connect with each other and help expand our writing community. To participate, we answer 12 tag questions and are encouraged to tag other writers. So, here we go:


  1. Name one novel which inspired me to write.
  2. What’s your favourite genre to read and write?
  3. Do you prefer to write stand-alone or series?
  4. Use three words to describe yourself
  5. Reveal your WIP aesthetics or an image that represents your main character or setting.
  6. How long did your first manuscript take to draft?
  7. Who is your author idol?
  8. Share a writing memory that made you determined to carry on.
  9. Tell us something surprising or unique about yourself.
  10. Share the hardest part about being a writer and how you overcame it.
  11. What’s your favourite social media and why? Share your link.
  12. Share some uplifting wisdom in six words or less.

My Answers

  1. I actually have not been inspired by a novel to write. Truthfully, I got bored one day after submitting my dissertation and waiting for it to be approved and started writing again. I used to write as a kid, but it had been more than thirty years since I wrote creatively.
  2. I read just about anything, and I prefer to write YA and younger. I prefer writing life and times without all the sex, drugs, and rock n’roll that is adult life. 
  3. Stand alone
  4. Lazy, always a step behind, and undriven (yeah, more than three words, oh well)
  5. I just (almost) finished outlining my three WIP and they are all very different settings and aesthetics. But each has a family component to it as well as finding confidence.
  6. Well, Tales from the Haunted Wordsmith were all created on the blog my first month, so not long there. Life in River Hollow was written in about a month, but had issues because the characters were hiding relationships and secrets from me, so it was about 3 months for a full draft. Reflected Echo was the result of the 2nd Camp NaNoWriMo this year in July.
  7. I don’t have an author idol – I admire books (authors make me feel inferior).
  8. I don’t have one.
  9. I will leave that one up to your imagination. I don’t know.
  10. Confidence – I haven’t. Every time I start a new project, I think I can’t/shouldn’t write.
  11. I am on Twitter and love interacting with others, but WP is really enough social interaction for me.
  12. Dream up ideas – make them real.

        1. You’re welcome. There is one called The Boneyard (working title) that I can’t wait to read when it comes out. It’s by a guy on Twitter called Ned the Zobmie (if you’re on there look him up). I got to read an early draft and its good. He has a horror that should be coming out next year that was picked up by a new publisher.
