Welcome to those visiting from Brenda Margriet's blog. Everyone else, so glad you found mine! Have you ever wondered what goes on inside a writer's mind? Our group of writers provide a glimpse of the inner workings of the creative brain. This week's questions come from Fiona Riplee.
1.Does humor help or hinder you in your creative process?
Humor provides a release from tension that can cause a block. I write sarcastic, snarky heroines so humor does figure into their character development.
2.What is a favorite go-to book or movie you use to unblock a problem in your writing?
I shy from borrowing from others' work. In fact, I'm hypersensitive to it so when I have a plot problem, I don't go to any book or movie because I don't want to subconsciously appropriate plot devices. To relax my mind, I might watch The Hunt for Red October or The Princess Bride.
3.What’s the most inspiring book you’ve read this week or month that’s generated a new idea?
The last book I read was The Lincoln Myth by Steve Berry, which was amazing. He is tremendously talented at creating present day conspiracies interwoven with events of the past. Riveting, I tell you! But no specific idea from that book, but rather a fresh spark for incorporating my passions in my subplots.
