Besides my jilted blog needs content! Haha.
Let us pretend that I am being interviewed by James Lipton from the Actors Studio:
|James Lipton will burn holes in you with his eyes.|
This is tricky because like most writers it’s usually “What I’m working on now” since that is the most vibrant and fresh and compelling.
But I really really really love the universe I created for my fantasy series.
James Lipton: Fantasy? Why not a sweeping epic about Depression era farmers?
No... I don't think--
James Lipton: Can there be some Depression era farmers in your fantasy novel?
Well, there are farms I suppose...
But The first book in the first series is titled THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS and I’m doing some edits before looking for a potential agent. And I’ve written about half of book two just because I can.
James Litpon: That's a lot of work into something that hasn't been published yet. Did you just go crazy like my hairline?
More like your tie. When I just tallied it up for this blog, I’ve written almost a million words in this world, mostly myths and histories and a bunch of interconnected short stories.
Whenever I’m overwhelmed by my WIP, or I just want to be unfettered in creativity, I can always slip into the world and make magic. Sometimes it’s sweeping epic history, sometimes high mythmaking, but many times a character catches my imagination and draws out a close story, intimate and personal.
It’s a great feeling, going from the macro to the micro within such a wide scope of history.
James Lipton: Do you feel like you need to have an epic rap battle with Tolkien?
I can't rap in Old Norse yet, so he'd prolly win that one.
Stay tuned for more madcap interviews!
