From now until Christmas, I’ll be doing a guest post at the Story Reading Ape every second Sunday of the month.
11th SEPTEMBER: Using the Seasons in Writing (and keeping track of time in your story)
9th OCTOBER: Working with Other Authors (since there’s a BookElves Anthology Vol 1 giveaway in October)
13th NOVEMBER: Doing a Goodreads Giveaway (tied in with a BookElves Anthology Vol 2 giveaway in November)
11th DECEMBER: The Trouble with Series (hopefully I’ll have a date or cover for Willoughby the Narrator by then)
Put them in your diary, or just follow TSRA by email for lots of excellent posts and reposted information. There have already been some splendid guest posts including one on food in fiction. I’m an enthusiast for food as a character indication, or just as world-building, as you may have noticed!
“What kind of music best speaks to you?”
Well, it depends on my mood. I like lots of classical music, and most times I prefer light classical on our Classic FM radio when I’m around the house or driving. But when I’m driving further I prefer my iPod collection, which includes rock, musicals, funk, folk, pop, (sometimes even cheesy pop), and Celtic Rock. Now that’s a genre not many people have heard of! Favourite groups I’ve found in that line include Enter the Haggis and Dan Ar Braz. If you try somewhere like iTunes, it’ll come up with people like Runrig, the Corrs and the Pogues, and you may need to hunt under ‘World’ to find them – which is tough because the world is huge. And I like a lot of that, too.
But for dental work I recommend My Sweet Lord. Very soothing. 😀
Now see how other people answered it!
