Two Writing Tags

I got this tag from this blog.

What do you write your stories on?

My Mom’s computer.

What is your Favorite kind of character?

TOUGH question.  I think my favorite kind of character is the main female character.

When you are asked what your story is about, what is your usual reaction?

I tell them in one sentence the summary and leave it at that.  Not too many people ask me though.  I do like it when people show interest and ask to read an excerpt or something like that.

What is your biggest writing pet peeve.

When I search, search, search for the right word and I just can’t find it.

Lots of boring description or just a boring plot all around.

Regency, definitely.  Just ask my family.

Very fast.

Usually concentrating on just one.

Words and their meanings fascinate me.  Also, telling a story is thrilling.

Planning everything just so.

    Yeah, searching for the right word–the one that’s right at the tip of your tongue, if only you could just figure out what it is supposed to be–is really frustrating. I also hate it when I get sidetracked by some small historic detail and a couple hours later I am an expert on all types of glasses that were available during a time period, but haven’t written a thing.

      I have never done such extensive research as you outlined but I do try to be accurate.

Give your opinion to the world!
