Letters from Camp: “Would You Rather” Writer Edition


So the great thing about Camp is being inspired to write.  Over on Herminia’s blog she did this great little “Would You Rather” thing, and I loved it.  So, here are my answers to some fun questions around the campfire!

Would you rather only write standalones or trilogies?

Honestly, as of right now, all the novels I am writing are standalones, but I actually have some ideas so that they can become series!  It all depends on how well they write.

Would you rather be a professional writer or a professional blogger?

That is easy, professional writer, while I love blogging, there are so many stories in me that need to be told! I want to share them with the world!  The characters who share their stories with me would be so disappointed if I stopped telling their tales.

Would you rather hand write or have to type for the rest of your life?

Honestly, if I could only do one, I would almost have to go with writing by hand! I much prefer it, there is such a beauty in writing, in the curves of a letter, how a word shapes itself… Yeah I love writing!  The only thing that stops me from writing by hand now is having to transfer it to the computer later, I REALLY hate transcribing my work!

Would you rather be forced to write everything in uppercase or lowercase letters?

Honestly, I think I would have to say uppercase. It really annoys me to see lower case i’s and the like.  So I could only save my sanity by writing in all uppercase!

Would you rather only write 2 pages per day or 250 pages per week?

I would have to say 250, although some weeks that would really be a challenge!  But I write a lot of different things, so that would depend on what is counting towards those two pages.

Would you rather be traditionally published or self published?

I have always dreamed of being traditionally published, but… as the publishing industry changes, so do my thoughts and feelings on the matter.  I really like the freedom that self publishing offers, and I hate being told how to do things, so I am leaning more and more towards self publishing.  But that is not to say if the offer didn’t fall in my lap, I would totally take it!

Would you rather only write in pen or pencil?

Pen of course!  What is this pencil word you speak of?

Would you rather only be allowed to write at your desk or anywhere else in the world?

Anywhere else!  I am inspired by things around me. Ever since I started writing at home, at my desk I have not written nearly as much as when I was going to the Mayo all the time.  With one exception, when I am writing with friends!  Seems so long as there is something to help stimulate my creative mind I can write all day!

Well there you are peps!  You heard it around the camp, and now you know what I think.  What about you?  Let’s pass these camp notes!
