writing meme: days 16, 17, 18, & 19

Yeah am cramming a lot into this post. If I get bored later, I might do three or four more. Stay tuned.

16. Do you write romantic relationships? How do you do with those, and how “far” are you willing to go in your writing?

I do write romantic relationships. I can’t write sex scenes for shit, though. But I try. I can report that I’ve been told I’ve gotten better with the romance angle over the last several years.

17. Favorite protagonist and why!

Except for Daniel in Midnight’s Heir, and really he was a bit part, I’ve never had a physical human protag. I’ve had more success writing depression and personal demons. Because that’s what I know.

18. Favorite antagonist and why!

Sami and Michael both, of course. Why? They’re just easy for me to write. I catch myself writing about either of them and find myself going and going and going … I have to rein myself in.

19. Favorite minor that decided to shove himself into the spotlight and why!

Minor character. :thinks: Sarah Williams. She started out as a party guest in Midnight, ended up being one of Michael’s advisors in Midnight’s Heir and the mother of his son. Then over the course of writing the prequel (shaddup!), Eventide, Sarah ended up with a grandmother, mother, and a last name. Then because of a fit Sami threw between Midnight and Midnight’s Heir, Sarah became Michael’s wife.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
