Hello Hello and Happy Friday,
A few weeks ago I entered the Like a Virgin Contest hosted by Kristina Perez and Rhiann Wynn-Nolet. Cute name, I know. It’s a contest where new writers can pitch their virgin manuscripts and get noticed. I made it to the first round! Yay! Now it’s time for them and everyone else to know me a little better. So here I go!
1. How do you remember your first kiss?
Hmm, my first real kiss was at a girls’ movie night that I hosted at my place. Everyone left, but one guest stayed behind. And then the magic happened.
2. What was your first favorite love song?
As a kindergartner, I loved the song Lady in Red by Chris de Burgh. Reason I knew this song was because my parents always had the car radio on this soft rock station. Anyway, I really wanted to dance with this woman. I’d always say “Chu chu chu” in place of the words “Cheek to cheek.”
3.) What’s the first thing you do when you begin writing for the day?
I listen to instrumental or classical music for about fifteen minutes and continue to do so as I write. Music is a big part of my writing. I really enjoy contemporary artists and composers such as Mono, Rhian Sheehan, Hans Zimmer, or E.S. Posthumus. For classics, I usually listen to Tchaikovsky or Mozart’s Requiem.
4.) Who’s the first writer who truly inspired you to become a writer?
Toni Morrison. Her work always leaves me in awe. Although I’ve been writing stories since third grade, it wasn’t until I read her books that I wanted to make writing my life.
5.) Did the final revision of your first book have the same first chapter it started with?
Definitely not. I think it’s gone through five major changes because I’m a strong believer of getting that first chapter right.
6.) For your first book, which came first: major characters, plot or setting?
I had the major characters in mind first and then hurled them into a story.
7.) What’s the first word you want to roll off the tip of someone’s tongue when they think of your writing?
Hope you enjoyed learning more about me! Be sure to check out the answers of other bloggers.
