Blogging From The Heart Blog Tour

Pal Gina Stoneheart from the Dawning on a New Day blog nominated me for the "Blogging From the Heart Blog Tour." Thanks, Gina.  Gina has a children’s book business and has recently taken on a completely different project from her children’s books: a crime fiction. Very versatile, Gina.If you haven’t been to her blog here’s her addie:

Questions to me and my responses for “Blogging From the Heart”:

What am I working on?
I’ve recently finished and am doing major cleanup on Loves, Lattes and Danger, the second in the Mutant series. 
How does my work differ from others in its genre?
Good question.I believe all authors have their own unique voice. I'll just tell you my goal, which when I write is to turn fantasy into reality.  
Why do I write/create what I do?
I write and create escapism. Real life can be be grim. We all need an occasional distraction from our day to day routine.
How does my writing/creating process work?
When my muse whispers in my ear, and unfortunately the little wretch occasionally takes a hiatus, I create a rough, and I stress the word rough, outline. From there I write a thousand words a day, except on Fridays. Friday is date night.

 Now for my three nominees:

Sherry Silver@ Sherry and I met through FTHRW’s critique group, both first time authors with Ellora’s Cave Cerridwen Line. We’ve been friends ever since. Sherry writes historical suspense. She has a lot of family history she can draw on. She blogs on physical fitness and health. I’m sure she’d love it if you dropped by.

Dana @ always has something creative and fun going on at her blog.  She’s a wife, mom (her youngest is four months old), and writer who loves to read. If you are looking for creativity in unusual places there’s a good possibility you’ll find it at Dana’s.

Robin@  My favorite posts are her Here’s To You Thursdays where she has clips dedicated to different blogsters.  She also frequently runs Battle of The Bands where you go in and vote for your favorite group singing a specific song. If you enjoy music, you’ll like this blog.
Ladies if you accept your nomination, just (a)recycle the nominee questions and(b) pick out three blogs to nominate. Easy smeazy.

An occasional distraction is good to have indeed

Sandra Cox said...

Hey Pat, Yeah if you don't get too many grin.

Dana said...

Aw, thanks for the nomination. You're too sweet. :)

I love your answer for why you write the things you do. It's so true: we all need to escape sometimes, and what better way than through a book.

Have a wonderful day!
