Q&A #8


Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want? 
... Hmmm.... Can I answer this without alienating possible readers... Nope.

Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly? 
 Unless they are some time traveling form of AI (or secret government conspiracy product *adjusts tinfoil hat accordingly*) then everyone feels emotions strongly. Some just don't let it rise to the very surface of their mind.

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer? 
 That is a hard one to answer. I was one of those reclusive ones. My closest friends knew I was a writer, but no one else did until I published my first book. I don't closely know other writers, I chat with them on social media, but I'm not really close-close to them. So I am kind like that big, doofy, loincloth wearing cave troll that lumbers up to a circle of thespians. They look at me, expecting me to grunt and howl and I start talking in a distinguished British accent. I don't make sense. 

(Edit: this answer was written in OCT. Since then I have found buddies in the writing community of Twitter. While I may not be close-close friends with them I still consider many of them to be my pals. They have helped to broaden and refine my view on writing and helped me to exercise my writing abilities with fun prompt and RP seshes.)

Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book? 
Am I devoting myself to a single series? No. Am I devoting myself to many series? *slow, mischievous grin* Maaaaaaybeeee
