Courtney M Wendleton
I met the lovely Courtney through Google+ and she’s an awesome young woman. Bright, intelligent and fun. She supports her fellow authors and bloggers and just has a dynamite personality.
So, lets get the show on the road and see a little insight Zoe style…
10 Questions, Zoe style…1. What is your writing process?My writing process takes place at my Command Center. I have my laptop and speakers set up to watch a movie and use my tablet to actually do the writing. I have the movie going basically for background noise, and something to keep me focused on my writing. Instead of getting up and doing something when my mind begins to wander, I watch the movie for a few minutes and then I’m back to writing.2. What do you read for pleasure?Anything and everything on my Kindle. I have horror, sci-fi, Learning Language books, Romance, etc. Usually I read Harry Potter series and Fifty Shades of Gray trilogy once a year.3. What is the greatest joy of writing/blogging for you?My greatest joy of writing so far has been when I put my first book, Touchdown Interruption, for sale on Amazon. As for blogging, I have not had a stand out joy yet.4. Can you tell us a little about yourself?I live in Ocean View, Hawaii, Hawaii. I was born and raised in the northwest corner of Missouri. I love to read, write and play video games. With my small obsession to write, I have an even bigger obsession with names. I can sit for hours coming up with names for my characters and not know it. I also love to travel and have lived in four different states, including Alaska.5. What are your strengths and weaknesses when it comes down to sitting down and writing?A strength would be focus. My focus is sharp when I am in the groove and even if I lose focus it is only for a few minutes before I’m back at it. A weakness would be editing while writing. I can’t stand those little red and blue squiggly lines under words or phrases. They bug me to no end and are part of the reason I lose focus until they are made to disappear.6. Do you have any strange writing habits?I don’t think I have any strange writing habits, but my dragon Kevin (he’s from Pillow Pet land) might say I do. Everything I write goes through him.7. What is your least favorite part of the publishing / writing/blogging process?Marketing. I enjoyed writing the book, and enjoy blogging but marketing is tedious in my opinion. A necessary evil to push through.8. Are you a person who makes their bed in the morning, or do you not see much point?There is no point in making a bed, it is just going to be messed up later. No one is going to see the bed, unless you go around showing your room to everyone. Plus I’m a “nester.” I burrow and get the pillows and blanket into just the right position for Kevin and me to write. Then fall asleep as I do most of my writing at night when others are asleep.9. Where is one place you want to visit that you haven’t been before?Ireland10. Choose: Vampires, Werewolves, Demons or Zombies?Vamwoldezoms. I love vampires, and demons but am just discovering the world of werewolves and zombies that I can’t choose.:)Bonus Question: How prepared are you for the Zombie Apocalypse I’ve ordered?Unfortunately I’m not. I am out of shape, I have no preferred weapon of choice and I live on a small island in the middle of the ocean. Plus the island happens to be an active volcano…I’m screwed.
