Hello my freaky ones-
today I turn my blog over to my writer Angel Edenburn (aka Gena Mantz). The amazing writing duo of C L Raven (check them out at http://clraven.wordpress.com/) tagged her to participate in this blog hop. (Personally, I think it is wonderful!) And my writer has tagged SK Yule to continue this fun next week! I can’t wait to read that one… so here she is- my writer Angel Edenburn. Check her out
CL Raven( http://clraven.wordpress.com/) asked me to participate in this blog hop. Don’t judge me too harshly. CL gave me four questions- 1 What am I working on? I am working on several projects at once. I have a novel with three of my characters nearly finished to send to Amos and Cassidy, I have the story of my character, Isis, and her family. (Thankfully, Isis agreed to let me use her page as well as mine http://angeledenburn.wordpress.com/ for this. I also have a werewolf novel I started almost 2 years ago, as well as one other short story in the works.
2 How does my work differ from others of this genre? I am not sure EXACTLY which genre I am. I have some action, some paranormal, some romance, a LOT of touchy/feely stuff, as well as character growth in my stuff. I want my non-stereotypical heroines to be themselves, not fit into a mold. My gals are a little more voluptuous, a little older, and not perfect. My mcs are NOT nubile, barely legal, size 2 girls.
3 Why do I write what I do? Well this is a multi-part answer. It feels right for me to write this. I write what I want to read and what I want my nieces and nephews to see and learn from. I don’t like some of what is out there that shows girls/women as very co-dependent. I want to show them something different and a better way to be. (BTDT co-dependent thing.) Also, when I sit down at the computer, this is what falls out. I love to write short stories as well as novels.
4 How does my writing process work? Right now, it is whenever I can squeeze it in. I write and edit almost anywhere. If I am riding in a car, at mealtime at work, when I’m mowing the lawn (I write in my head), or when I sit down at the computer. I plot when I do chores, I edit when I hit writer’s block, and the rest of the time I write. I have Scapple and Scrivener and use Scapple and lots of scribbled notes on pieces of paper to help keep my ideas sort of organized. I get stuck, I just jump to another WIP until something breaks loose. Then, I jump back and keep going.
Okay, so next week is going to be the sensuous SK Yule, writer extrordinaire of the paranormal, and multi-published author. Check out her stuff here http://skyule.com/.
until next time,
Angel Edenburn (Gena Mantz)
