Welcome to everyone joining me from Victoria Barbour's blog. If you missed her, hop back when you're done here.
Ever wonder what's going on inside the head of a romance writer? Wonder no more. You've landed in the midst of romance authors who are happy to give you a sneak peek into their writing lairs.
This week's questions come from Beth Carter:
1.What’s your favorite aspect of novel writing? Dialogue? Setting? Conflict? Narration? Explain.
It's none of the above. The best part of novel writing is the relationships. It's the healing of a wounded soul or transformation from zero to hero. It's falling in love or rediscovering that lost lover. The words. the sentence structure, the story elements are the frame for the beauty of the characters and their struggle. It's my job and my pleasure to translate their stories from mental movie into written text on the page.

3.I’m a big six-word memoir fan. (Hemingway even wrote one.) Describe your writing day using just six words.
Never enough time to write alone.
As a wife who works full time and mother of two tween girls, there is never enough time to write. I know it sounds weird, but I'd love to win the lottery so I could stay home and write full time.
So ends these three answers from me. Don't stop now, hop on over to see what answers the talented A.S. Fenichel has in store for you.

Wishing you'd win the lottery so you could stay home and write doesn't sound weird at all, at least to another writer. I too wish I could spend my days writing. And I also agree that character is the best part of writing. I love meeting each new character and knowing that more will come in the future. Great post!

Thanks. Money doesn't buy you happiness but it can open opportunities previously closed. I'd just love more time, but you can't buy that.

Loved your 6-word memoir. So true!

Absolutely. I occasionally ponder sending the hubby and kids on vacation without me.

I totally understand where you're coming from! I don't have to be alone to write, but I need a good solid block of time to make it feel useful. Squeezing it in between work and family can be tough!

Not to mention the guilt taking time away from family.

Love your answer to #1. It's the relationships. YES! That's why we do this!

Thanks, Kim. Even the arguments are fun. Getting to say what you don't dare in real life! Getting to "wear" someone else's skin for a while.

Relationships are hard to master but really great when you can mesh two personalities into one cohesive couple. Great post
