So, this isn't directly book related, but I have a few questions that have been bugging me for the past day or so. Call this a slight abuse of power?
In the past month or so I've really put myself into the blogging community (as much as a shy girl with no real connections can). While doing so, I've noticed quite a few bloggers are also writers. And bloggers are also writers sometimes. These questions are really for you writers.
1] How do you know which story is the story? I know I get bit by the writing bug all the time (actually, my muse is a blue penguin named SteveBobMcGuire and he's kind of a crack addict, but not the point) and usually I just pick the story that seems most interesting or the easiest for me to do if I'm short on time. I also have a lot of fantasies I play out in my head, sometimes for hours at a time when I don't feel like getting out of bed. But I never write these down. So, how do you know which one is right?
2] How do you write best? Heavily outlined or on the fly? Notebook or Computer? Combinations? I'm a combining girl myself, though a lot of the time when I outline, I jump off pretty quickly.
3] Where do you get your inspiration? Do you have a muse? (i.e. SteveBobMcGuire)
I think that's it for now. If I come up with more questions, I'll ask them later.
