No, actually I can because I revision everything – four.
Some of those early versions…a beautiful demonstration of not knowing what to write about. There were lots of ways to go at it. Do I write about my many years teaching hand-to-hand mixmaster beef loin braising techniques at the Academie du HaHa in Paranormal, France?
Probably too graphic for most readers. No.
Instead I went with how to write a combat scene such that the reader believes it.
Hey Joe! Tell us a little about yourself.
I consider myself boring and dull.
Sounds impressive, doesn’t it?
It starts with “Not only is Joseph Carrabis a fellow Black Rose Writing and Book Fiends author friend, he’s an amazingly nice and generous guy. I am looking forward to meeting him in person in November, but right now you can get to know him a little better with my next World-building Showcase interview.”
Young adult horror, sci-fi, and fantasy author Teri Polen Bad Mooned me.
I know, it’s true. I should have known better and I’m ashamed of myself.
IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!
Teri asked me a bunch of questions – Would you rather be a vampire or a lion tamer? (no, that’s not right. I have The Magic Show on my mind. sorry), What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters of the opposite sex?, As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal? and others.
I must have done good because the comments were flattering and I do oh so love flattery.
I do, I do, I truly do.
And please check out Teri’s books. We’ll both appreciate it (my reward is knowing I helped Teri out).
