Ignoring my last post here is a slightly delayed Coffee break. I have some crackerbread, water and black coffee – forgot the milk, must do a big shop.
I also have some Russian Vodka and cake which a work colleague brought back from Moscow so feel free to have some.
The topic this week is influence or influences. What influences you? What is influencing you in your writing right now? I myself, after swearing I wouldn’t, have become a bit of a Twi-hard (that’s a term for a Twilight fan in case you didn’t know). All I want to do is write about Vampires and Werewolves. When I read Heaven Can Wait by fellow racer Cally Taylor all I wanted to do was write about the Supernatural and the same for Harry Potter – why can’t I write about a bunch of wizards?
If I am reading a book in the First Person that’s the way my writing goes. I have just read a story which switches between 2 POV which I will more than likely be applying to my next shorty.
Do you have a particular style of writing or does it change with each influence? I personally think my writing is all over the place and you couldn’t assign my name to all my stories as they are all so different in style.
Also on a sort of separate note (it could be classed as influence if you want) as it came up in the comments of my last post but I really want to know:
What did you do before Google?
