S4S – Questions for authors

HOLA. Sunday again! Another busy week of blogging, working and reflecting. How is everyone this fair Sunday? Is it fair where you are?

Today’s #SixforSunday prompt required a lot of thought from me… I needed to refine my questions from 60384934043000 to just 6… JUST SIX. Who came up with that rule? (I did? I’m a terrible human!)

Anyway… today’s #SixforSunday is:

Six questions for authors

Ah authors, those awesome people who make us laugh and cry; crush our souls; transport us to new dimensions; fill our lives with incredible new worlds. So 6 questions I have aimed at authors, all authors… I’ve tried not to be specific. I’d love some author pals to answer!

  1. Do you prefer to write heroes or villains?
  2. What is the weirdest thing you’ve had to research in the name of your books?
  3. How are you so awesome?
  4. What is the hardest part of the writing process?
  5. WHY DO YOU MAKE US WAIT SO LONG? 
  6. Do you secretly enjoy watching the fans all freak out about your cliffhangers/plots?

I HAVE SO MANY MORE. I mean, I’m nebby. If any of my author pals (ha, pals, who do I think I am?!) read this and fancy answering them, I’d love to know the answers! (Number 2 is my favourite thing to ask at events, don’t go stealing it because it’s my go to question!)

Share your #SixforSunday posts, I’d LOVE to know what you’re asking authors! Thanks again for joining in, I love you all!

    I’m just gonna class myself as an author pal despite being barely an author and more a bestie than a pal but hey ho!

    Do you prefer to write heroes or villains? – Heroes! I fall in love with my characters and hate the mean ones haha.

    What is the weirdest thing you’ve had to research in the name of your books? In an old draft of something I want to return to one day, I researched how long someone can go without oxygen and not die but be very very ill afterwards.

    How are you so awesome? HA.

    What is the hardest part of the writing process? Self doubt! Half the time I feel like my writing doesnt even feel like a book.

    WHY DO YOU MAKE US WAIT SO LONG? Girl 4 months to go.

    Do you secretly enjoy watching the fans all freak out about your cliffhangers/plots? I do not have fans, or cliffhangers.

    Hi! Thanks again for your tweet of PURE JOY.

    1. Neither, I am all about those side characters/background characters/anthropomorphised animals-buildings-plants ETC.
    2. Ok I can’t answer this one TOO specifically without giving away a clue in the next book, but I recently had some questions about setting fire to buildings that will not look good on my search history.
    3. Aw shucks. (*whispers* Iammadeofstardust,spreadtherumour,wecanmakethiscatchon)
    4. Between about 2pm and 5pm, every single day. Which is why these hours should never be part of the writing process unless you like the feeling of your soul being folded inside out.
    5. The schedule is specified in the contract and I will be the last person to understand those enormous documents of terror, so don’t look at me.
    6. Ah I don’t really do cliffhangers. I’m sometimes like, maybe this one could be a series, and then at the end I just want to go round tying bows on everything bc it’s my favourite bit.

    And I have a question for you: what is NEBBY? And a follow-up question: why am I out of the slang loop now, what is going on, eh?
