Its been awhile...

Since I did a tag so here is a fun one. Its a writing tag!

What do you write your stories on?
Usually on a Word Doc, but I keep a notebook on hand all the time.

What is your favorite kind of character?
One that I can relate to. Someone kind, but not afraid to go and kill some bad guys!

When you're asked what your story is about, what is your usual reaction?

Um...Don't you know your not supposed to ask a writer that? Either you will get to much information or none at all. Sorry. I freak out, unless its a writing friend who asks. Then I know just what to say.

What is your biggest writing pet peeve?
Writer's Block. I hate those things. I have fought many a battle with that foe.

What is the biggest turn-off for you when reading a book?
Bad language, or questionable scenes. And a boring story. If it doesn't interest me I stop.

Your favorite era in history?
WW2, no question about that!

How many words on average do you punch out in one sitting?
If I am really interested in it, 100 to 200.

Are you a fast typist?
I'm good.

What do you do for inspiration?
Anything! Music, read or just force myself to write something.

The truest writing quote you've ever heard
This one:
One ought only to write when one leaves a piece of one's own flesh in the inkpot, each time one dips one's pen. ~Leo Tolstoy

Or this one:
A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author. ~G.K. Chesterton

What's your favorite genre to write?
Fantasy or Historical Fiction.

Favorite font to write with?

Least-favorite writing prompt you've ever recieved?
I can't answer this one. It brings back to many horrible memories. :P

What do you like better: Pens or Pencils?
