Are you a planner (outline, etc.) or do you “pants” it?
A bit of both. For the most part, I’m a pantser, but when the research or fictional world demands it, some planning is vital, if I don’t want to rewrite a ton of it.
Do you write daily or sporadically when you’re inspired?
I write only when I’m within 2-3 months of deadline. I research and rest up until that point.
What time of day do you find you write best? Or you enjoy more?
Noon-6pm; I get all my “housekeeping” done in the am–chores at home, email, Twitter, Facebook, marketing, then I’m good to go!
Where is your favorite place to write?
The library. At home, I just get too distracted.
What tool(s) do you use to write? Microsoft Word, Pages, Scrivener, typewriter, pen and paper, and/or napkins/toilet paper?
Notes on paper. Laptop to write.
What are you thoughts on traditional publishing vs. self-publishing?
It’s radically changed over the last couple of years. Now I suggest everyone pursue traditional publishing but educate yourself on self-publishing. Then you can decide for yourself!
