What has been the hardest struggle to overcome to keep on blogging?
Sometimes I just get burnt out, I guess? And I’m also insanely busy all the time, which makes it difficult to find time for blogging. It’s tech week for another show right now so I’m honestly surprised I’m managing this.
What’s your favorite music to listen to while writing or reading or whatever other activity you do?
I am borderline obsessed with film scores. Pirates of the Caribbean and The Hunger Games are my favorite, but I’ve lately fallen in love with Ramin Djawadi’s score for Game of Thrones (I don’t watch the show, but honestly, the music is spectacular.) I listen to these for writing, reading, and just generally everything.
When I run, I really enjoy podcasts or audiobooks- they help take my mind off the running. Writing Excuses is my favorite podcast and I recommend it to every writer.
Do you plan your blogs in advance and schedule their release or just blog by the seat of your pants? Or a combo?
Sometimes I schedule posts, but it’s a rarity. Usually I just blog when I have a moment and an idea, or when I’ve finished a book and desperately need to review it.
Having a familiar gives you magical powers, but the only one available is a spider. This is your only chance! Do you accept your familiar and the magic it gives you or light a match and run away? (No, you can’t transform it into another animal. It must remain a spider. Nice try though!)
Ummm…. I am terrified of spiders, but magical powers…? I have no idea what I’d do. I’d have to be in the actual situation to give an answer.
What food could you eat all day, every day and never get sick?
I’m not sure there is one. I’m a fan of variety in my food. I do love ice cream (and I’m not eating dairy at the moment, which has forced me to try the dairy-free ice creams, and let me tell you, they’re amazing) and lots of different foreign foods.
What TV show could you binge watch over and over?
BBC’s Merlin. I absolutely love everything about it, especially Arthur. If you haven’t watched it, go do it. You won’t regret it.
What’s the one blog post you are most proud of?
Female Villains vs. Male Villains: A Discussion
I know this is a short one, but it was really interesting and there were a lot of good comments.
Have you ever played a song on repeat so many times you got sick of it? If so, what song?
No, I don’t think so. Sometimes I’ll need a break from a song, but I’ve never gotten so sick of a song that I hate it from that point on.
If your home was on fire and you could only save one book, which would it be?
The copy of Captain Guinevere I used as a guestbook when I had my release party.
What’s your favorite water sport? To play and/or watch.
I don’t play sports at all (so I sorta run CC but only because my friend does and we talk the whole time), but I do enjoy watching Olympic swimming every four years.
What book do you wish you never read?
Robinson Crusoe is still my least favorite book in the entire world. I just generally hate survival books and I just can’t deal with this one. Unfortunately, I’ve had to read it more than once for different school courses.
