Last week I had the opportunity to participate in my first Twitterview. Doing an interview on Twitter with a 140 character limit on your response certainly makes you think about how to convey your message in few words. It was exciting to have the questions coming at you live and to have other visitors chime in as well.
Sezoni Whitfield runs the website, Writters Kaboodle and is all about supporting writers. Every Thursday she schedules interviews in one-hour slots. If you would like to be interviewed yourself, visit her website to view her calendar.
Here is a transcript from my interview.
Sezoni Whitfield If you had to make a rule about writing, what would it be? #writerskaboodle
RebekahLyn My personal rule is write through the pain. Current WIP is like pulling teeth but I keep pushing on #writerskaboodle
RebekahLyn I have 3books out, working on #4. They r Christian fiction,w/romance, a murder, work trials, things we can relate 2 #writerskaboodle
RebekahLyn For me, Christian fiction still allows the reader 2 escape, but in the end walk away with a message of hope #writerskaboodle
Sezoni Whitfield Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? http://www.facebook.com/AuthorRebekahLyn … #writerskaboodle
RebekahLyn I have trouble writing in order. I think of a scene, write it, & find it needs to go later or earlier in the story.#writerskaboodle
Sezoni WhitfieldIf you had that to do over, what would you do differently? #WritersKaboodle
RebekahLyn I don’t know if I will ever write an entire book completely linearly. I’m not a very linear thinker. #writerskaboodle
Sezoni Whitfield Excellent! Who designed your cover? And, did you have any input in it? http://www.facebook.com/AuthorRebekahLyn … #WritersKaboodle
Sezoni WhitfieldIs there a message in your book that you want your readers to grasp? http://www.facebook.com/AuthorRebekahLyn … #WritersKaboodle
RebekahLyn Jesse, my current WIP deals with overcoming bitterness. #writerskaboodle
Sezoni Whitfield What is your writing style? #writerskaboodle
RebekahLyn Do u mean am I an outliner or a seat of the pants writer? I am seat of the pants, sit down & see what comes out. #writerskaboodle
RebekahLyn I have a general idea of what the basic story is about but that’s about it #writerskaboodle
RebekahLyn Summer Storms? A few tiny bits of my own experience, raw emotion of grief & some experiences in travel industry. #writerskaboodle
Sezoni Whitfield Is writing your career? If so, what things do you do to treat it like your own business? #WritersKaboodle
Sezoni Whitfield Rebekahlyn, thank you very much for your time this evening! That went fast didn’t it? #WritersKaboodle
RebekahLyn It did go fast! Thanks so much for having me. I hope we can chat again after Jesse is released later this year. #writerskaboodle
Sezoni Whitfield We most definitely will! Please let us know as quickly as possible when Jess is released. Thank you again! #WritersKaboodle
