Author Tag - 3 ~ Writing Habits

Author Tag – 3

Writing Habits


  1. Typed or Handwritten?

My outlines and first drafts are all handwritten in FiveStar spiral bound notebooks. I’m contemplating looking into Scrivener, so this method may change in the next year, we’ll see.

  1. Cursive or Printed?

I write in all cursive, except headlines/topics are printed.

  1. Show us your favourite pen.

My favorite pen is a simple black ClipClick pen, I like this because the ink comes out smoothly and it’s a nice fine line; it’s also not too dark, faded or smudgy.

  1. Where do you like to write? (Location)

When outlining and/or writing my rough draft, I enjoy writing at my “Writing desk” or sitting in my reading nook.

For writing the 2nd and final drafts and editing, I like to sit at my office desk and I work in word on my laptop.

  1. Who are your five favourite authors in terms of authorial style?
I’d have to say:

Lisa Kleypas
Sabrina Jeffries
Christi Caldwell
Lisa Jackson
Vivienne Loret

  1. What are you your three favourite books on writing?

Oh tough one, I’d have to say:

Outlining your Novel by K. M. Weiland
Structuring your Novel by K. M Weiland
Plot Perfect by Paula Munier

  1. Have you ever competed in NaNoWriMo?

Yes, this year was my first time doing NaNo and although I didn’t win, It was a rewarding experience, taught me a lot about myself as a writer (am definitely not a pantser) and I’m looking forward to CampNano in April!

  1. Have you ever won NaNoWriMo?

Not yet, but plan to win it in 2017!

  1. Have you ever had anything published?

Not yet, but that’s in the works. Am hoping my Wexford Sisters Series will be published in 2017, at least the first two books in the series. However, another series is brewing in my head to, so that one might also make its start in 2017 as well.

  1. What projects are you working on now?

I’m currently working on my first book in my Wexford Sisters series. It’s a very detailed and lengthy series with a lot of conflict and back story, so this series requires a lot of work.

  1. What is your soundtrack to writing?

I do not listen to music when I’m actively writing; however, any songs that remind me of my book, I’ll gladly share down the road.

  1. Do you have a writing pump-up song?

No, I do not.

Now, it’s your turn. Any authors out there or aspiring authors, I invite you to take part in this tag!
