Bridgett, Serial Novelist

Bridgett is an author I found on Twitter. We got to talking about some things that were weighing on me.  She is sharing her writing in serial form.  (The first chapter of her novel is intriguing).   “Not everyone will be a fan, but if I put it out there for the world to see, it has a chance of finding someone who will LOVE it.”  I admire her and look forward to catching up on all eighteen chapters of her serial.

What chores do you absolutely hate?

B: Vacuuming makes my ears hurt, but I really hate dishes. I had a job where I had to wash the dishes by hand every day for three years. I’m still sick of washing dishes.

B: Twitter! I think I’m a little bit addicted.

Have you ever developed a crush on one of your characters?

B: Yes. It’s happened a few times while I’m in the process of creating the character, or they happen to do something really amazing in the story. I get over my character crushes pretty quickly, though. I know their flaws and shortcomings better than anybody, and my crushes never hold up well against imperfections.
