25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your story? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?
Answer: Nope, no music. If I want to get stuff done, I need no distractions which means tv and music both off. Otherwise, I find myself constantly getting pulled away by shiny elsewhere.
26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a story?
Answer: My voodoo research for Black Satin Voices took me to some odd places, so that's probably it.
27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?
Answer: Anyplace I don't get interrupted, lol. I tend to write laying down on my stomach, either on the floor or on my bed, with my laptop. 99% of what I do is on the laptop. That other 1% happens before I go to bed, since part of my nightly ritual involves picking up a notepad and freeforming for a page or two by hand.
28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your story?
Answer: Yep, and it spilled over into my professional writing as a result. I don't write collaboratively anymore, though, and doubt I will again. Artwork is a whole 'nother ballpark but I don't hang out with artists to feel comfortable doing that unsolicited.
29 – What is your current project or projects?
Answer: Short stuff right now, because of the holidays. I'm writing Wes/Faith for winter_of_faith and another short for merlin_games.
30 – Do you have a favorite story you've written? What makes it your favorite? And don't forget to give us a link!
I'm proud of a few fics, but the two that probably make the top of my list are Legions of True Hearts and Delicate. Legions just came together in such a way, plotwise, romantically, as well as incorporating my love for William, that it will always have a special place in my heart. And Delicate was my first attempt at Wesley/Willow, and the two of them are in such vulnerable places in that fic that it just gets to me every time I read it. It's one of the few I get sucked into when a random review will show up in my email.
In Merlin, it's a much harder call. I like both of the longer fics I've done, but there are a number of short ones that I'm really proud of, too. So...I'm going to abstain from picking a favorite here, lol.
