If you’ve read my posts, you know that I joined (re-joined) the Trifecta Writing Challenge shortly after beginning this blog. The biggest reason I joined this is to learn more about the process of writing. I love the challenges because they are more than the simple application of a word in a piece. These challenges have taught me about bring long-winded in my writing (cutting my pieces waaaaay back) and have encouraged me to get to the point with poetry. If your blog is about the writing process (or your desire to take part in it) you ought to check out the challenges. Now, in “Q&A” format, a little bit about me:
What is your name (real or otherwise)?
I am going by Undercover L, which is not my real name.
Describe your writing style in three words.
Humor, honest, sarcastic
How long have you been writing online?
This blog: about 2 months;
Previous blog: about 4 months
Which, if any, other writing challenges do you participate in?
I was invited to be part of Blog Festivus in December, which was a blast!
I also participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge and the Daily Prompt Challenge at Daily Post when I am suffering with writer’s block.
Describe one way in which you could improve your writing.
Asking for feedback from readers.
What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given?
Start big and then whittle it down.
Who is your favorite author?
That’s like asking my favorite musician. I can’t pick a favorite because I love each author for the diverse experiences and feelings they give me. It would almost be easier to tell you who I don’t (yet) like.
How do you make time to write?
I write during the day when my daughter is otherwise engaged (Playdoh, napping, etc.).
Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt. (Remember–it must have a third definition.)
Direct us to one blog post of yours that we shouldn’t miss reading.
My whole WTF Friday series, the favorite (by views) being WTF Friday: Volume 3.
