Writer Friends Challenge: Day 7

It’s Day 7 of the Writer Friends Challenge!

Day 7 – A Writer I Admire: While there are many, I’m going to have to go with Tracy Chevalier. I recently finished A Single Thread, though I’ve read quite a few of her other books. Her historical fiction is positively transporting! She puts so much research and emotion into each story, bringing her characters and places fully into life.

Who’s one of your favorite writers?

Writer Friends Challenge: Day 6

It’s Day 6 of the Writer Friends Challenge!

Day 6 – Share a Writing Dream: In many ways, my dreams about writing have already come true! My writing is a full-time job that pays the bills, plus I get to stay home in my sweatpants all day! However, I’d absolutely love to go on a writing vacation. There’s something about travel that’s incredibly inspiring, and I think it’d be amazing to just go sit by a mountain lake and write all day.

Do you have any writing dreams?

Writer Friends Challenge: Day 5

It’s Day 5 of the Writer Friends Challenge!

Day 5 – What’s your favorite genre to read or write? I’m ridiculously not picky when it comes to reading! While fantasy and historical fiction are my favorites, I’ll read just about any genre. When I write, I’m all about modern fantasy because I love to find to find a way to inject magic into normal lives.

What’s your favorite genre?
