I decided to take up Ameena’s challenge for the blog tour award since she nominated everyone. I have to answer 4 questions about my creative writing process. Thanks Ameena at http://www.randomsbyarandom.wordpress.com
Pass the tour on up to four other bloggers.
Give them the rules and a specific Monday to post by – lets go with Monday March 23, 2015
Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.
Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday (date given from your nomination.)
1. What am I working on at the moment: I am working on a novel — or what will eventually be. It’s hard to find time to write and I am just starting the the 5th chapter of How Was Last Night for You. It’s an adventure/romance about Nina who falls for John a man cursed to experience strange and horrible events due to a curse from his last love. I am taking a Fiction 600 course which corresponds nicely with this as it is teaching me how to write and develop a work of fiction as I go along. I am also taking a copywriting course as part of the SFU editing certificate in April and May.
2. How does my work differ from others in my genre: My work is sometimes very different and sometimes very similar. I tend to be extremely creative and imaginative when I write so I think that makes me a bit unique that I’m able to come up with these odd or just different ideas then others. I don’t have a specific genre. I read a lot of adventure/romance so I might write that way especially with my noval. But I like to surprise people too and just write about whatever.
3. Why do I write or create what I do: I have to. I can’t explain it but I get these ideas and I’m inspired and writing, specifically blogging, has given me a chance to let out this creativity. Sometimes it’s more personal, sometimes not personal at all, sometimes it’s a teaching article on a subject. I write because I must.
4. How does my writing/creative process work: My writing just happens. I put my fingers to the keyboard and ideas just start coming out and transforming into words. After that is finished I really have to clean my work up. Then this editing process can take little to a lot of time. Usually more then less. It’s why I am taking editing to help my work be grammatically and stylistically better.
Now I nominate:
And yes, I’m way early with my post so if you want you can be too. March 23, 2015 deadline
