28. Protagonist – Worst way to die?
Nerissa: I would think dying at all would be pretty bad. But, you know, poisoned toothpaste is right up there on the list of bad ways to bite it.
I borrowed this from Twitter, therefore the “Likes” thing doesn’t apply. I’m just going to answer these because I’m that self-interested. I’ll start with just five, though, because I don’t have a lot of time at the moment.
1. Age you started writing.
Well, I taught myself to read and write when I was three, but I think you mean, like, writing stories? Around age eight. I would make little newspapers and magazines for my friends to read.
2. Story that inspired you to write.
It was actually movies and television that got me started. Indiana Jones and Young Sherlock Holmes and animated Disney movies and such.
3. First WIP title.
Like, the first I ever wrote? Jesus, I don’t remember. I wrote these “magazines” called Fanta-C if that counts.
4. First, second, or third person?
Usually third. BUT. My most recent WIP was in first person and that’s the one that grabbed an agent’s interest, so I may be doing more like that in the future.
5. Favorite time of day to write.
I used to write from about 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. That was the ideal time. But then I had a job and kids and now I write from about 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and pick up again around 4:00 to 5:00 or so.
