Nanowrimo Spotlight #18: Amanda


Hey everybody! I still have a few interviews left in the bag, so let’s break on through to Amanda.

What’s the most unusual part of your writing process?
I seriously doubt any of my writing process is too unusual.  I basically just sit down and write.  Though when I’m serious about writing, I grab my netbook and power supply, glasses, and earphones and sit at the kitchen table away from all the distractions in the house.  Occasionally I will shut off the wireless card to keep the internet from distracting me.  The oddest thing I probably do while writing is wear my little blue knit hat, it’s sort of my “Thinking Cap”

Where are your backup files?
Back up files… why they are everywhere!  I swear I have a copy of my stories on every computer in the house.  They aren’t all at the same spot in the story, but mainly I keep them on a flash drive that get placed in a draw for safe keeping.  This year for NaNo I am trying something new and writing with Google doc through www.mywritingnook.com.

What advice would you give to all your fellow Wrimos?
The advice that I would give other Wrimos is not to worry about the 50,000 word mark.  This whole thing is an adventure, enjoy the challenge and write.  Be proud of yourself whether you reach the goal or not.  If you push yourself too hard you will burn out.  However you approach November, Good Luck with your writing!

Sneaky Ninja Question! What is your favorite genre to write in?
My favorite genre to write it would probably be Literary Fiction.  I love my characters and want everyone else to as well!  I tend to ramble in real life and with Literary Fiction it’s like giving me a license to ramble!  Though I do tend to keep a strong plot and make an outline of where I want to go.

Feel free to stop by my blog Boring Ol Me for writing updates, photography and other boring adventures I may go on!

Thanks for stopping by, Amanda!
