Serious Round

Do you plan or pants it?

Oh, I'm definitely a plotter. When I started writing, I flew by the seat of my pants but the process follows far too many dead ends and time lost to massive rewrites. Now I prefer a structured approach to writing craft.

Give me two ways that you use to make your characters likeable to the reader.

A character's likeability is two part. The most important component is for the hero to have a sense of humor. Appealing characters also have believable flaws that drive the story as the arc results in some real and compelling growth.

Wacky Question

If you found yourself back in the 80s, what piece of clothing would you rock?

I had a denim jacket in high school which I simply adored. If I flashed back to the 80s, that coat would be the first thing I put on!
