The tag is very simple. Answer FOUR questions and tag FOUR awesome writers. Here we go:
Q: What are you working on right now?
I'm actually working on two projects - a post-apocalyptic novella and a nine-part science fiction serial. I've fallen in love with both of them, so it's tough deciding which to work on whenever I have the time. I don't have a date for the science fiction serial yet, but I'm planning to release the novella before the end of the year.
Q: Why do you write what you do?
I blame it all on Gene Roddenberry, William Shatner, and disaster movies. I grew up watching Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and numerous other 1970s out-of-this-world shows. I love anything to do with space or the end of the world. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a doom and gloom person. Quite the opposite. My fascination is with how the human or alien races deal with disasters or the exploration of space. It's about world-building and characterisation.
Q: What is the hardest part about writing?
Apart from finding the time or energy, for me it's proofreading. I'm terrible at it. I become so familiar with the text I don't see the errors that are practically screaming at me. Thank goodness for editors and proofreaders.
Q: What scares you?
Never succeeding at what I love to do. I want to make a living writing, rather than it be a hobby. So while I will remain true to myself and my writing, I want to also make money. I'm realistic enough to know that unless I do a Hugh Howey, I'm not going to earn a massive amount. That's okay. I only want enough to live on.
Now it's time to tag four awesome writer:
My question for the rest of you is, have you seen Sharknado yet? I'm watching it tonight. I love a horror film that's so bad, it's good.
I'll be back on Wednesday with an Indie Life post and this week's Speculative Fiction Writer, Mary Pax. Until then, happy sharking.
