A Writer’s Ramble

Today in her Sunday Ramble series E.M. asks the following writing-related questions.

When did you first discover your love of writing?

I’ve always loved to write, from the time I first began scribbling with crayons. At age 6, I wrote a poem about a snowflake and my mommy put it on the fridge. That early validation spurred me onto the heights of greatness you are currently witnessing (that’s a joke).

Would you say that you found your imagination at a young age or when you became older? If you want to, share something you discovered with your imagination. (Be sure to copyright your post.)

I’ve always had a vivid imagination, though early on it was colored by what I read. Now, it goes wherever. Lately I find myself soaring into flights of fancy and including supernatural elements in my writing ~ or let’s say events/descriptions that could be viewed as supernatural. It’s great fun and frees me from any strictures of “what is possible.” In writing, anything is possible!

What is your favorite genre to write about? (Example: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, True Crime, etc.)

It depends on my mood. I wrote romance/erotica novels and short stories for a long time… and I wrote a funny political romance novella too. I write a lot of poetry and flash fiction… it could be about anything, including crime, sci-fi, animals, etc. Dialog is probably my favorite part of a story to write; I’m not great at describing locations and scenery. I also ramble on about whatever, though in general I don’t share much personal stuff about family, friends, or work. Basically, my genre is fiction not fact.

Do you ever get “writer’s block”? If so, do you have a reason of why it happens?

I wish! There are like a kabillion things I want to write and will never have time to finish them all. I am never blocked, though there are times I get bored out of my mind with a particular WIP and abandon it to begin something new. Basically, I have to monitor myself so I don’t spend too MUCH time writing. There are other things in life… well, allegedly.

Can you tell me something that I do not know that you do not mind sharing about your style of writing?

I could, if I knew what you don’t know!

  7. Hi Paula! Your answers were full of that awesome personality that shows in your writing 🙂 The meme made me smile too! I love the Twilight Saga. It’s so good that your mom validated your talent at a young age. My mother never knew how to do that. Thank you for making me smile and rambling on with me 🙂 Have a great week! See you on TMP!
