Answers to your Questions Part 2!

Wow so this is a LONG time coming. I didn't completely forget about it... I just never finished answering all your lovely questions (from like, August)!! Silly blonde girl!

Okay, DL Hammons asked:

1) When was the first time somebody made a fuss over something you had written.

2) Which position do you prefer? Writing at a desk or splayed out somewhere with a laptop?

My Answers:

1)  Of course mother's are always our biggest supporters right?  I was always writing silly stories and drawing pictures growing up that she gushed over and hung on the fridge.  But one thing that sticks out in my mind is when I first started really taking writing seriously. I just wanted to give it a shot and see what came out of my brain. I don't even think I told anyone (I still don't tell too many people in my day to day world), but when my grandma was visiting I chanced it and showed her what I had written so far. It was only two chapters, which have since almost COMPLETELY changed, but she read through them as she was laying in bed one night during her visit. She knocked on my door and came flying to my bedside demanding more right away. I didn't have any more to give her at the time, but she pretty much talked me into making a go of it.

2) When my laptop was functioning, I actually liked writing on the couch with my computer on my lap.  But now that I have a desktop monster, I pretty much have to sit at a desk, unless I write by hand in a notebook. In that case, I like to sit outside or sprawl out on a blanket in the sunshine.

  4. I'm a laptop on the couch person, too. It lets me keep track of my kids while they watch stuff on TV.
