- What’s your favorite thing about being a writer?
I like having an outlet for the excessive emotions I tend to feel.
- What is your least favorite question in regards to your writing? (ex. How’s it going? When are you going to write the next Harry Potter?) ?
When people ask if I am going to write a poem about them or give me suggestions on poems.
- What is, for you, the best time of day, day of the week, and location in which to write?
Morning can be quite productive before the world begins to intrude too much.
- Pens or pencils?
Whatever is closest to me at the time inspiration strikes.
- What’s your favorite word or words? What about it/them appeals to you?
Almost any word can be my favorite, although I do love words that deal with the senses: taste, sight, sound, etc.
Bonus question: Batman vs Spiderman – who wins?
Tough one. Spiderman has actual super abilities whereas Batman has great detective skills and is incredibly smart. I might have to go with The Dark Knight who might outfox the Amazing Spider-man.
