Shiver me timbers (wait, what?), I’ve been tagged in an author blog hop! My lovely friend Lexie Bay has tagged me, so I get to answer some questions in regards to what I’ve got planned on the writing front in the next twelve (or so) months.
So, here I go!
If you could achieve anything with your writing in 2014, what would it be?
I think getting more stories accepted/published would be my main goal. I’d also like to try and get a story accepted in a magazine or on a website, or something to that tune. I’m also tentatively working on my first novella, so setting a big block of time aside to do just that is something I’m hoping to do quite soon.
(Psst – keep it quiet, but I’m also trying my hand at a sci-fi story about time travelling…)
What are the top three demons you must slay to achieve your goals in 2014?
- Fear of branching out and trying to write about new things.
- Achieving some sort of balance in my life – one in which I don’t go mad trying to do everything at once.
- Self-doubt/negativity. Speaks for itself.
Name three things that inspire you to write
- Random things I hear and see during the day.
- Random trains of thought, such as “what if…”
What advice do you have for a new writer who is considering writing fiction?
Write whatever you want to write about, in the way only you can. Whichever genre or style you write in, you are not a lesser writer for writing in the genre you love.
And if you’re considering writing erotica, the above applies doubly.
Whew! I think just about everyone who could be tagged for this has been tagged, so I’m just going to leave this here. If you want to “be tagged” by me, leave a comment and I shall do just that.
