We haven't done one of these in awhile and it seemed like a good idea so that all of you can ask me anything about the stories, the site, writing, etc. Questions like: how do you get your ideas? Or what inspired you to write the Abyss? Or do you find what you write sexy, cringey, or what?
So put your questions in the comments below and I will try to answer them all in the upcoming weeks!
I cannot wait to hear what you're interested in knowing!
I've been a member for a while and when I first started you had 7 stories updating twice a month, now you're writing fewer stories but with more chapters a month. Do you prefer having fewer stories on the go and getting to give us more of them, or are you hoping to eventually get back up to 7 ongoing stories?
I seem to remember you've mentioned in the past that you enjoy video games: which game (or games) are you playing at the moment? What consoles do you have? Have any video games ever inspired one of your stories?
That's all I can think of for now, thanks
How do you keep all the characters "in check" as in where do you keep your charactersheats, in your head, onenote or do you use a program spesificly for that?And how do you keep the intertwined stories and timelines to not tangle that much? (I'm actually quite impressed by this.)
How do you write, as in what do you do to write, and is it something you learned or something you just do? I'm dyslexic and have a hint of dysgraphie, I really have problems with putting my thoughts on paper so to speak. Do you have any tips on writing?
I've been away from the site for almost half year now and I just came back to check things out after I got an email. I noticed the schedule has changed a lot! Are some of the stories not updating anymore (like The Fell)?
You don't know since you've been away but The Fell will be re-starting next month as Sanctuary 2 had to finish so no spoilers.
Do you ever hear a song and it reminds you of one of your characters or even an event? I find that listening to music can help me get to understand my characters more. Have you ever done this?
Are you currently having many completely new world ideas or do you keep thinking of add ons to already existing worlds? How do you balance those two?
I love the merman stories so much, but I find it a bit hard to categorize them with the other shifter type stories. First, only the hybrids shift, and even then, only once. Where Fallon and Jude are swapping back and forth fairly regularly. I wonder if you would consider making an Eldritch tag to better categorize the Mers, since they are so completely entwined with their Guardian, Cthulhu.
Ok so....Everdark brought me to your site and since then I have been inhaling most everything that you've written while waiting for updates. I fell into the WinterhavenCC, then went to Sanctuary1 and 2, then did a reverse to Pact 1 and 2, then, Vampire's Club which is where my question originates. So far I've managed to connect the dots between locations and active and passive ( Cursed ) characters in and around WH. I have fav's Emry, UNamed, and of course Nomad..I just enjoy the dry sense of humor that they have...( I'm getting there )..So of course when reading Vampire's Club and the Nomad character appeared I was thrilled...more fancy reparte and banter...and I expected to see Demetrius...but no..I got Konstantine...( finally the question)
How many fledglings does Nomad have ? I thought just 2 ( D & A) where does this other fledgling from Vampire Club fit into WHCC ? Does Nomad have a secret illegitimate fledgling he's hiding ? Ok that's my question...or is the answer in the Fell which I haven't gotten to yet..LOL
Awesome question given his memory loss! Wonder what treasures he might have forgotten, beyond just his Harbinger powers & history Sifting through his past would be like the wildest archaeological dig (see, last chapter of Sanctuary II)!
Do you ever go back and read the comments that were posted after a story was completed? Especially ahead of writing a sequel to that story?
