Insecurely Confident invited me to take part in a Blog Tour, in which we answer the same 4 questions and invite a few other bloggers to join in the fun. It’s a neat way to take the ball, answer the questions, and pass the ball to others and learn a little more about their “behind the scenes” goings-on. Peeling back the curtain just a little bit.
Insecurely Confident answered the questions on his blog, and you’ll find links to other wonderful bloggers there, too.
My answers to the questions:
1. What am I working on at the moment?
Mostly, I’m working on a novel. It’s about obsession and fetish, and I hope to publish it in early October, as much of the story takes place around Oktoberfest. However, as I work on editing and re-writing the novel, ideas come up for shorter stories, and my attention gets diverted. I publish these quickie stories here. But I keep coming back to my novel, as I’m determined to finish and publish it as an e-book after summer.
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Tough question. I try to add some depth to the characters, rather than just focus on the hot action. But I feel that other writers also do that, so that’s not really how my work differs. Sorry for the shitty answer. I’ve really enjoyed reading others’ works and thinking, “That was fucking hot!” after I read it. I very much hope that some people reading my stories think the same thing. But I’m not fully sure what makes my work different, though.
3. Why do I write what I do?
I fucking love to write. There are times when I get caught up in the action and story, and I love that feeling. Borrowing from my answer for #2, I love it when I think “That was fucking hot!” after writing a scene. There were a lot of loves in this answer, so it comes down to that.
4. How does my writing process work?
I type on my laptop when I can free up some time for it. I don’t really have a routine where I write the same time each day. But I try to make time and write. I try not to self-edit as I write. The editing and re-writing can come later, when I put on my more analytical hat. My writing hat should let my imagination run free and fly. Sometimes that works, and sometimes it doesn’t.
And the touring continues… I’ve invited the following bloggers to join in the Tour. It was tough to pick just a small selection, because I follow a lot of blogs that I really enjoy, and all are totally worth checking out.
