Blog Hop Hooray!

Hellooooo, all you fabulous people out there! My partner in crime, and the incredible author, Margaret Ethridge, tagged me to participate in a blog hop about writing, of all things. Be sure to check out her post as well!

Here are The Rules: Answer the following four questions regarding your writing process and WIP, and then tag four more writers to carry it on after you. Everyone is giving a shout out to the person who linked them first.

The Questions:

*1) What are you working on?
*2) How does your work differ from others in the genre?
*3) Why do you write what you write?
*4) How does your writing process work?


1) What are you working on?  A story about love and peanut butter. And the love of peanut butter. Oh, hell. Here's a rough blurb: It's the year 2033. Since so many people have developed allergies to peanuts in this century, the government has banned peanuts and all peanut-related products, including (*gasp*) peanut butter. Side note: I think that was the most anyone has ever used the word 'peanut' in a sentence. Well, as you can imagine, Morgan, my heroine, refuses to live in a world without PB. So, with the help of my hero, Clark, they build their own peanut-butter-making machine in the secret basement of her home and begin the business of bootlegging. Also, they share a few pb kisses, etc, etc.

2) How does your work differ from others in the genre? I tend to slather on the humour in my stories and my natural quirkiness always shines through in my characters. I write the kinds of stories that people read and think, "Huh. This is the first time I've read anything like this before...What a nut." :D

3) Why do you write what you write? I love to laugh and I love to make people laugh, so writing stories filled with humour is a very easy transition for me. I also love to read dirty books. So I write what I like to read in hopes that others share my...sophisticated taste. ;)

4) How does your writing process work? Oh, was I supposed to have an actual process? Hmmm. Sometimes I sit on my bed, I prop my laptop on my lap, and I put words into sentences. And sometimes I just stare at my screen. And sometimes I just read dirty books and surf the internets. Helpful? Didn't think so. Oooh, something shiny! 

If you'd like to participate in this blog hop, comment on this post and let me know! I'll toss these questions right back atcha! :) Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
