Did you think I was going to abandon my Romance Weekly ladies (and one guy!) with all my Passionate Kisses promo? NO WAY! This group rocks. And if you read right to the end this week, you'll see a rafflecopter link that will give you a chance to win lots of books by all the Romance Weekly authors.
Now, let's get to it!
When writing your novel, do you know how it’s going to end before you write, or do you write from start to finish?
All I ever know is that if it’s romance, it’ll all work out in the end. How I get there is a mystery to me. When I plot things out, I get stuck. I find I’m trying to force the story along rather than let it develop at its own pace. My current WIP is a bit more plotted, just because it’s a fleshed out version of a story already told in one of my novels. But even now, knowing the ending isn’t helping me get there.
How do the people you know impact your writing? Are you influenced by friends and family for your characters?
I try not to put people I know in my stories. But that’s not to say that certain traits or phrases might not show up. I think I put much more of myself into the books than I do of others, with the exception of my husband. There are certain bits of dialogue he’ll read and he knows exactly where those words came from. But other than us, I try to keep reality out of it. I have some people in my life who keep reading thinking that they are going to show up, but knowing that, I do my best to make sure they never do. ;)
Describe the hero in your current WIP in three words.
I have three WIPs. And three heroes. But the one who’s on my mind tonight is Will Walsh – SCORCHING NAVY ALPHA
If you enjoyed this weeks questions, pop on over to visit their author, Ms. Dani Jace, to see how she answered her own musings. I expect nothing less than profound insights. ;)
And, as I mentioned, here's the rafflecopter link for all of our giveaways, which we are going to draw for in July when we celebrate our six month anniversary.
