Secrets of a Romance Writer: oh dear, playing catch-up again…
Oops, I did it again! But I’m not Britney, so I’ll just pull up my writerly pants and do another 3-in-1 post. Brace yourselves!
Week 25: Do You Keep a Journal or Diary?
No, not anymore. I stopped when I got married because living in close quarters with my husband made me fear he could discover my diary/journal. Not getting deeper into this matter – but suffice to say that I used to keep one for almost a decade. I wrote in it every single evening, first in my mother tongue and later on in English. I’m not sure it ever helped my writing because it was never fiction in any form, but I do think it helped to keep sane during difficult times.
Week 26: My Favorite Indulgence
Is reading an indulgence? If so, then that’s definitely #1. I can’t go a day without reading (for pleasure, that is, in addition to all the reading I do as part of my job). I’m a bookworm through and through, and I can forego food and many other comforts as long as I have a good book to indulge in. (Also, I’m a chocoholic, so chocolate is my next biggest indulgence.)
Week 27: Most Fun I Can Have while Dressed
Excuse me? *snickers* There’s a lot of above-mentioned ‘fun’ to be had even while dressed. Just sayin’… But to keep things non-smutty, just look at the above answer. Reading is what I love most, and it’s always tons of fun. So is chatting with my amazing online friends from all around the globe (and spending way too much time on Tumblr *cough cough*).
