Ever wonder what goes on in the mind of a romance writer? Ponder no more! The authors in Romance Writers Weekly let you take a peek inside their processes. Welcome those who have ventured over from the talented Sarah Hegger. If you haven't made the stop at her blog, pop back, you won't want to miss her take on these questions! This week's questions are from Beth Carter.
1. Which type of character do you prefer writing about: Sexy, romantic, sweet, quirky, mean, old, young, smart, silly or other?
All of the above. I love smart, strong women who may have to learn how strong they really are and strong, sensitive men who have to learn to release their tight grasp on control. I especially love writing military heroes and heroines, men and women who deserve our ultimate respect but so often are expected to drop back into civilian society without missing a step. Talk about conflict!
2. Have you ever killed off (or gotten back at) an ex in your writing? On paper,of course.
Who hasn't? In a WIP, ex-boyfriend finds heroine through social media, stalks her and tries to burn her alive. Naturally, I, I mean the heroine, must take the bastard down. Three .45 caliber bullets in his center mass resolved the problem.
3. What hobbies do you have that you incorporate in your writing?
Gardening is a big hobby that always figures in some way in every story. Nature is such a force in our lives, even with technology she cannot be controlled. Reading is my next hobby, though sadly I must relegate it to a reward for doing chores or tasks that I really don't want to. Besides, if I'm reading, I'm not writing. But reading provides a portal to another space or time, a door to another lifetime. Basically, I'm happier outside than in so given the choice, you can find me outside. Most of my heroines share this perspective.
