I am doing so well that I drew a picture of how I felt. Then I set the picture on fire, ate the flaming ball, and went, “OOLALALALALALALALA,” while lathering lo-fat yogurt all over my naked body and running around my bedroom.
Yeah, I am doing sorta okay. I drew a new picture that completely captures how I feel.
I think this one is better.
Anyway, I have writing questions for you today. I want to know how you write.
Are you the type of person who does it by the seat of their pants (me), or do you outline your story?
Do you write the story straight through and edit afterward, or do you go chapter by chapter (me) and edit bit by bit?
Do you write fast (me-1200 words in one hour on Saturday, which is a new record), or take it slow and easy?
My last question - when an interesting idea pops into your head during breakfast, do you hurry to jot it down or do you shake your head and comment, “Oh, George, why did you have to punch out the valet like that? Next time, wait until after I eat my breakfast.” Then you go about the rest of your day shaking your head at the crazy things your characters will sometimes do?
I think you know which answer I have for the last question.
