Writing meme

Ganked from scrollgirl

1. How often do you write a week?

You mean I'm supposed to do something else? I'd say anytime I'm not sleeping or working for a living, and sometimes when I'm doing that stuff, too.

2. Do you carry a notebook with you? Is it full of stuff to do with writing?

I carry a notebook, but I don't use it all that much. I used to use it more when I commuted by bus, but now I always seem to have a computer in front of me, and if I don't, there's random scraps of paper.

3. Do you only write when inspired?

Good Lord, no.

4. Can you self edit?

I don't rely on much "non-self" editing, actually.

5. How do you feel about critique?

I'm OK with it, since I've been writing long enough that I'm fairly confident of when I agree with someone or disagree with someone. Doesn't mean a negative critique isn't disheartening, though.

6. How do you feel about rejection?

I am petrified of it.

7. Are you misunderstood?

What's that got to do with the price of tea?

8. Is your writing misunderstood?

Only when I do it wrong.

9. Do you consider writing a craft? An art?

Actually, I consider it a science, but that's just me.

10. Have your relationships suffered because of writing?

All of them. Most of the time.

11. Has your job suffered?

I get by.

12. Do you ever get smacked with inspiration?

It's the only way to go. Everything else is wheel-spinning. Or editing.

13. What percentage of writing is talent, inspiration, and hard work?

My writing? I don't think those are mutually exclusive. A leads to B and C leads to B and insanity+B leads to C.

14. And most importantly - do you enjoy writing?

I put it up there with sex and chocolate.
