This week Kristina and I are launching the Like A Virgin Writing Contest!
Part of the festivities include a blog hop to help contestants get to know each other by answering Seven Questions. Thursday’s Children can play too if they like, or you can do a “standard” inspiration post, or you can talk about a “first”. Your choice. The linky on my post is the regular Thursday’s Children blog hop. If you want to answer the questions and be part of the Like A Virgin blog hop (opens Friday), the linky will be on the Like A Virgin website.
Here are the Questions. Oh, and we want the Truth (not a Dare)~
- How do you remember your first kiss?
- What was your first favorite love song?
- What’s the first thing you do when you begin writing for the day?
- Who’s the first writer who truly inspired you to become a writer?
- Did the final revision of your first book have the same first chapter it started with?
- For your first book, which came first: major characters, plot or setting?
- What’s the first word you want to roll off the tip of someone’s tongue when they think of your writing?
Here are my Answers.
1. With disappointment. Beginner syndrome for both of us.
2. “Uncertain Smile” (The The) If you’ve never heard it, or are feeling nostalgic, click here
3. I read what I wrote the day before.
4. Stephenie Meyer. I know, I know. But I read TWILIGHT and the writing didn’t blow me away, so I thought I should give it a shot.
5. Yes, basically. But in between it had other first chapters.
6. Plot. The same can’t be said of my second, but can be said of my third and fourth. General setting has been a “given” so far, therefore I don’t count that as coming first, though maybe it does. Hmm.
7. Haunting. Because my favorite books are the ones that haunt me years after I’ve read them. P.S. I don’t think I’m “there” yet.
Now, I can’t wait to read all YOUR answers! Or about your “first”, or whatever inspires you this week.
Here are the Thursday’s Children codes for this week. If you use Blogger and have trouble with the Linky, try deleting the ” marks and retyping them when you paste the code in html mode.
