Here is a list of the frequently asked questions that I’ve been asked either through the blog or in person. If you have a question of your own, feel free to leave a comment, or email me. I won’t spam your email, don’t worry. You send me a question, I’ll reply when I’ve added it to my FAQ, and that’s all.
What word processor do you use, and why?
I use Microsoft © Word for Mac 2011. I use this because, even though I converted to Mac in 2012, Microsoft Word is more user-friendly to me, and I like being able to put my document into full screen mode that makes a very nice distraction-free area. Granted, Mac’s Pages has the same feature, but I like how Word has all the tools on different tabs and not in a toolbox that gets in the way.
How often do you write?
I try to write at least every day, but that isn’t always doable. Usually, I try to write in the morning once I’ve woken up since writing jumpstarts my brain. (I tried writing before bed, but found that it was much harder to fall asleep with my brain firing off new ideas and such.)
Have you ever been published?
I have, actually. In 2007, one of my poems was selected to be printed in an anthology of Young American Writers. In 2010, another poem won third place in a state-wide poetry competition and was printed in the Texas Renaissance Festival newsletter. In 2013, a monologue was printed in Oklahoma Christian University’s nationally recognized literary and visual arts journal, Soundings.
What do you like to write?
I love writing fiction. Fantasy and Science Fiction are my top go-to’s, but Creative Non is creeping up there as well. I tend to write about the ‘other’ in societies and how they come to terms and deal with the events that happen around them.
