So I was tagged by Sue Lyndon- http://www.suelyndon.com/ - and for this fun hop is why I'm taking a week off some on-the-blog fiction (but I have ideas in mind :D ) Thanks for the tagging, Sue.
1) What am I working on?
My blog posts (I keep a schedule and try to post more days than not), "The Beginning of Knowledge: Book Four" of my Vala's Story serial, "Mandisa Cares for Her Girls" (a FFF BDSM novella), blog tour posts for the re-release of "Out of the Night: Book One." Those are at the top of the work pile of WIPs.
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Well I have maybe 177 words of blurb on how I tend to be different on my blog in the right margin. Thinking on "Knowledge," the main things are The Queen's gender, the queer and poly focus of the book, including one transgendered character. I also push envelopes, like on knife play, in this book.
3) Why do I write what I do?
Oh, so many reasons. I'm thinking a lot on the social justice piece, having talked about it with my character Mandisa on Friday. I'm doing a re-write on "Knowledge," part of which is increasing and improving the time I spend with my transwoman character, Lady Audrey, who is a friend/love interest for my cisgender, bisexual dominant The Queen. There's also the fact that I love BDSM sexuality, including being a voyeur of situations which I'm not the right gender to enjoy.
4) How does your writing process work?
No outlines done beforehand and copious notes. LOL. Well that's a simplification, but I tend to be working on multiple things at a time. Like I have multiple tabs open in Chrome atm and multiple files in OpenOffice open, so whatever I want to work on might be ready at a moment's notice. Sometimes I have several images in mind before I write, sometimes I only have the kernel of a thought- like I only have the starting point of what I want to write next Monday in mind.
And for next week, March 10th, I'm tagging Annikka Woods. Annikka Woods is the pen name for Alison Guynes. She loves cats, fantasy, and science fiction and is also working on her first novel. Her website is http://lifewritingandmiscellany.blogspot.com/ .
So I'm just tagging Annikka- so many of my other writer friends had already gotten tagged and I got tired of asking, but I knew Annikka would enjoy it.
