Who are some of your favorite writers? Or the last book you have read?

The last book I read was Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I read this many years ago, and with the movie coming out I thought I should revisit it. My favorite writers are not too surprising, considering the name of this group. Brandon Sanderson is my current favorite. I do believe I would buy anything written by him, sight unseen. Stephen King is an easy one to like as well. Glen Cook and Jim Butcher are two more. I'm sure that I could come up with a dozen writers that I enjoy, but this is a good start.

What would you like to improve with your writing?

I have trouble with viewpoints, deciding what is too much detail versus too little detail, passive voice - you know, problems most writers seem to have.

What genres do you tend to write? For example, paranormal romance, hard science fiction, etc.

Gritty horror, gritty fantasy, gritty superheroic. What can I say, I like grit.

What is the best or worst piece of writing advice you've ever been given?

Only write what you know.

When participating in small group discussions, do you more often listen or wait to speak?

I should hope most people listen! Waiting to speak tends to put your mind in park, wouldn't you agree? I don't think I could properly respond to anything that someone else has said if I was just waiting for a break in traffic to scoot in...


Howdy - I'm here looking for a group of like-minded creative people to help me tighten my writing and bounce ideas off of (and if it's over a glass of wine, so much the better).
