"You have a gift."

 Wherein Jack gets caught up

 With my tour offically over I can now get caught up on some back posts, namely one. I was tagged in the Writing Process Blog Tour! I was tagged by Kelly over at MY COUNTLESS LIVES.

 So, to begin.

 1. What am I working on?

 Aside from the one book I am brainstorming and the two I am trying to get some plot problems smoothed out with, my biggest project is my first Historical Fiction, Brothers-in-Arms. My WWII story about a Nazi and a Jew who are best friends. (Still working on how to explain it without it sounding like a ten-year-old talking about her favourite book.)

 2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
 It is purely a friendship story. No romance. Also, I think I deal more with the war and how it impacted the people living in it. I could be wrong because I tend not to read modern Historical Fiction since most of them seem to have the same plot and focus on romance and not the history aspect, but I think I focus more on how the war affected those living in it.

 3. Why do I write what I do?
 Because characters kidnap me and hold me at sword point and don't feed me till I do. That and I got tired of not being able to find new books at my library. All of them felt kind of the same, and there were no really good friendship stories after a while. I think friendships are just as important as true love, and I want to write about them. 

 4. How does my writing process work?
 I sit at my desk...I skim through books I am reading, I watch youtube clips, I market on facebook and twitter and pintrest, I comment on blogs, I edit, and somehow I write and books come out. (That is only with second drafts. First drafts I forget the world and just write.)

 And there is the end of it! I do have a series of questions from the CLEVER BUNNY SISTERS

 1. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
 A worm

 2. Do you ever read more then one book at once?
 I never read less then three at a time.

 3. Who is your favourite superhero?
 Captain America

 4. If you do daily devotions, do you prefer to do them in the morning, or before bed?
 Morning, though sometimes I have to before bed

 5. What is your favourite day of the week, and why?
 Thursday. I don't have to work and can work on my books all day

 6. Smoothies or milkshakes?
 Milkshakes. Unhealthy of course.

 7. What is your favourite summer activity?
 Playing in the river and bike riding. 

 8. If you could spend a day with a fictional character, who would you spent it with and what would you do together?
 Can I pick two? Three? I would have to pick three, I can't pick one. 
 Jaron, Nightly, and Sab...five, because I can't have Nightly without Dimitri and Seb without Nat. And we would go on a picnic and play tag.

 9. Skirts or shorts?
 Skirts, unless I am feeling adventurous and on my bike. 

 10. Do you have a nickname?
 No, my parents named me Jack

 11. What would you name a black baby rabbit?
 The Black Knight. 

 I tag Bella, because she needs to talk about her book. And Anna. For the same reason. You both have to do the writing process tour. I also am going to pass it on to, I am drawing blanks. Sorry. I want to tag you all who write, because I'd love to learn more about your current projects!

Quote is from Sky Captain. If you don't get it watch the movie




  1. Daily devotions - good for you!
    Nothing wrong with writing a story that is just friendship. You know I approve.
    And hope your tour was very successful! Still lots of comments from Golon's interview appearing on my blog. He amused them.

  2. Friendship stories are just as special as true love ones. There don't seem to be enough of them either. Good luck with everything!
