This post is in response to a getting-to-know-you activity on a writing website I just discovered: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/ Participants were asked to copy and paste the questions and then answer them. These are my responses.
What is your name (real or otherwise)?
Diane Tarantini (Preferably sung to the tune of the song, “
” in Gary, Indiana
The Music Man.)
Describe your writing style in three words.
Spare, honest, confessional
How long have you been writing online?
Which, if any, other writing challenges do you participate in?
Describe one way in which you could improve your writing.
Be not as spare. Maybe.
What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given?
Write every day.
Who is your favorite author?
How do you make time to write?
I endeavor to post a piece on my blog every Friday. That “deadline” coerces me to carve out the time to write my piece and edit it (multiple times). Setting submission goals is helpful also. Oh, and like someone else said, I don't do housework. Much.
Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt.
Direct us to one blog post of yours that we shouldn’t miss reading.
