I was recently invited along on a virtual blog tour by the amazingly energetic and resourceful Mummy Tries who told me that…
“The tour is a journey through blogland, and each week new bloggers answer questions about themselves and their writing projects. He or she then invites and introduces another couple of bloggers who answer the same questions on their blog a week later, and so it continues. It’s a fab meme and a great way of finding new blogs.”
…this is where I came across an obstacle! The bloggers I approached had all posted as part of a blog tour before. No matter, I will simply invite my lovely readers to join in. If you would like to be involved, please post up your replies to the following questions in your blog post (with a little link back to me, please!). Not forgetting to tag/invite your own chosen bloggers too 🙂
So here are the questions, along with the answers:
1. What am I working on?
The biggest project I’m working on is my children’s book. I’m very excited and am currently finalising illustrations. I intend to self-publish although I have not discounted going down the route of getting an agent on board. My belief is that my children’s book will be huge and I’m going to need a team behind me to fulfil my vision!
Then there’s my alter ego blog of Mummy Bears Blog.
Never a dull moment round here but I love it 😉
2. How does my work differ from others in the genre?
Without giving too much away about my children’s book at the stage, there are no other 2 cheeky characters around quite like mine!
As to my other work. I wouldn’t say that my other work is unique in that there’s nothing else like it in its genres but I would say that I’m always true to myself, to my style and in that respect it’s totally unique. Unique that is!
3. Why do I write/create what I do?
Put simply, I love to write! Every bone in my body screams writing, imagination and creativity. It always has. I’ve never, ever found writing to be chore. Far from it. I find it therapeutic and when I write I always find that other ideas flow, and then more ideas!
As to my blogging, I wanted to find a way that would mean that I was writing every single day. After all, writing is a practice that needs growth and experimentation. I have found that blogging ensures I do indeed write everyday. I may not post every day (although with my 2 blogs, I’m not far off) and I don’t always push myself to; after all there’s always my children’s book that needs attention.
In short then, I wouldn’t feel like me if I didn’t write…
4. What is your writing process?
My writing process has to be organised! I’m naturally an organisationed person and therefore I have notebooks dedicated to each of my writing projects (books, ebooks, blogs…) and then I have plastic envelopes dedicated to each of the pieces of paper taken from said notebooks.
I like to write in pencil predominantly, on my Wonderful World of Writing pad and rarely type as I go (unless it’s a blog post and I’m already fired up online, so to speak).
So I hope you’ve enjoyed a little bit about me…
While you’re here, take a look around my blog. I’ve 2 linkys (Footnotes and Anecdotes and Wonderful World of Writing), tailor-made rhymes (Bespoke Rhymes), an upcoming ‘Featured Authors’ section, informative ebooks… and a whole of writing and fun!
