The final stop in my Goddess Fish tour is on Laura’s Thoughts and Reviews. Unlike most traditional reviewers, Laura asked me questions about my favorite TV shows, and my favorite meal. Here’s my response to the latter:
Cheese pizza, no other toppings, and a side salad with balsamic dressing. There’s a pizzeria in East Gwillimbury, Ontario, called Coccelli’s. I love their pizza slices, so whenever I’m in the area, which isn’t all that often, I stop by. But any cheese take-out pizza with a thin or regular crust works for me. It’s the ultimate comfort food, though my homemade macaroni and cheese comes a close second, and I make a mean veggie lasagna. Do you sense a cheese theme happening here?
Laura also asked me for suggestions for beginning writers. Here’s what I had to offer:
1) The writing muscle is like any other muscle, the more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes.
2) Don’t wait for the muse to come to you: write every day. Some days the muse will show up, and some days it won’t, but at least you’ll be ready in case she comes to visit.
3) There is no wrong or right way to write your story, and there is no magic software solution. Even diehard Scrivener users (I’m not a fan, but I know plenty of writers who use it) have to get the story down, one word at a time.
