If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed my #WIPjoy Tweets during the month of June. This meme is a month-long challenge led by YA sci-fi and fantasy writer Bethany A. Jennings; and for every day of the month, writers answer a specific question and share bits about their current work-in-progress (WIP). Participants can also take the meme to Facebook, their blog, and other social media outlets they

This was my first time participating in #WIPjoy, and it was a lot of fun! It especially gave me a chance to learn what other writers are working on, get a taste of their writing style, and cheer them on as they work on their drafts. Now I’m even more excited to read some of those stories when they’re published someday!
And what I did I share for #WIPjoy? The Keeper’s Curse, of course! (It IS my only WIP at the moment. *lol*) So, I thought I’d share a collection of my #WIPjoy Tweets here with you. This post doesn’t contain all of my Tweets from the challenge – but it does feature some of my favorite questions / answers, and several of the excerpts I shared. Feel free to share any feedback in your comments, or “like” or “retweet” any of the linked Tweets. 😉 Enjoy!
I spotted this tag at Faith Rivens’ blog not too long ago and absolutely knew I wanted to do it, too. It’s inspired by the Major Arcana, the first 22 cards in a tarot or oracle card deck.
Now, I’m aware that not everyone believes in the accuracy in tarot or other divination tools. But being a believer isn’t necessary here. The following questions take each card’s themes and applies them to your WIP or your writing process. So, this is a more “inclusive” tag than you might think. 😉
Any story-specific questions in this tag will focus on my WIP, The Keeper’s Curse. To learn more about this novel, you can either read the current draft of its blurb or visit the Chronicling The Craft series. Continue reading
Beautiful People is a monthly blog meme hosted by Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up and Further In. Every month they pose 10 questions for writers to answer about their writing and give readers the opportunity to learn more about the writer’s characters.
This should actually be Beautiful Books Vol. 2, which would have continued last month’s questions regarding NaNoWriMo or other writing projects. But after reading Cait and Sky’s questions for this month, I realized I answered similar ones last week in the Behind The Scenes Writing Tag. So, rather than repeating myself, I’m REBELLING. 😀
I’m taking a set of questions from Cait and Sky’s Beautiful People archives and introducing you to another character from my YA fantasy novel, The Keeper’s Curse (which I’m currently revising). Today you’ll meet Remigan, or “Remi” for short. Like the protagonist Eva, Remi is a Faerie and a diplomat serving on the Council of Selanaan. He is 16 years old, has light brown eyes and dirty blonde hair with reddish streaks, and is a history buff. And if you read on, you’ll find out why I think of him as the male equivalent to Hermoine Granger. 😉
