For the writing meme iwillwritethisnovel asked (via fanmail):
04: Have you ever thrown a book across the room?
Not physically, but I have wanted to! Reading questionable Young Adult novels can do that to a person. :P
07: Have you ever been part of a critique group?
I haven’t actually, but I would like to be. I think it would be amazing to bounce ideas around and learn from the experience of others.
16: How do you feel about movies based on books?
Generally quite favourable when the adaptations are done well. It’s always intriguing to see what you’ve been picturing in your head as you read translated onto the big screen. One of my favourite movies based on a book is the 1985 version of Anne of Green Gables — it’s pretty darn perfect in my eyes.
Then there are movies that stray from the source material and consequently - I feel - are actually better than the novel they’re based upon. Take Practical Magic, for instance, I far prefer the movie over the novel.
23: What’s your favorite & least favorite part of making characters?
Favourite(s): being able to shape and mold this brand new being, bringing a chracter to life through quirks and mannerisms, spending hours trawling through various websites to find the perfect image of them (as close as can be to the one pictured in my head), stumbling upon songs that fit them perfectly. I could go on — creating new characters is fun!
Least favourite: sometimes I struggle with being original and giving each of my characters a unique voice.
Thanks for asking! ♥
