What color represents your personality the most? Orange because of how bright and eye catching it is.
How often do you write? And when do you write? I think on average I write at least once a day. I don’t try to force it. If it’s forced then it’s not genuine. I write when the inspiration hits me. I have ideas and stories going all the time. I carry three notebooks on me at all times. Scenes come to me and i have to get them on a page. Each story gets their own time.
Do you have an organized process or tips for writing well? Do you have a writing schedule? I love this idea but there is no scheduled time for me to write. I have times where I have set aside for this but I refuse to make a story develop. The story I am telling comes in its own time. I don’t put it in a neat little box of Mon. through Fri. five to nine in the evening. Inspiration can hit me at two in the morning. I get up, write out or type up the scene then go back to bed.
