Eloquence In A Question #1

This will be the first of, hopefully, a series of insightful question/discussion posts.

Here’s how it works: Have a look at the question, read my answer, and then do one or both of the following: tell me your response to the same question, respond to my answer with thoughts of your own.

Question:

How does it feel when your muse runs his fingers through your hair, resting his palms bare on your crown?

Answer:

My muse is androgynous, taking on the form of whatever is necessary to fulfill the task. But when it comes out, it’s a rather strange feeling. It’s like my thoughts cease and words begin to form in response to some form of stimulation (one or more of the five senses, sometimes including synaesthesia). When I’m writing my fiction, I transcend myself and become whoever it is I’m narrating. It’s freeing and relaxing, and it is definitely something that I cannot live without.

How about you?

Stay tuned for the next question.

To Do Or Not Too

How did you like that little play on words? Apparently, I can be clever at times.

Remember when I talked about newsletters? Well, I’m in the process of creating them and I’m almost ready to open up subscriptions. Yay! I’m back with another poll for you lovelies. If you’d rather not read my thoughts, feel free to jump to the bottom and answer my poll, I’d appreciate it.

I know it’s taking forever, but I’m juggling several projects at the same time while trying to deal with all my issues. The last thing I want is waste people’s time if they subscribe, so I’m trying to iron out as many kinks as possible before everything begins.

That brings me to the point of this post. Some authors like to give away exclusive freebies to subscribers. I thought perhaps I’d do the same, as a thanks for joining. But before I dive in head first, I wanted to test the waters, so to speak. Ask how everyone feels about it.

I mentioned before doing a divided newsletter where people can choose any combination of the following: updates, poetry-focused issues, and fiction-focused issues. Depending on what people set for their preferences, I can offer a small chapbook, and/or a short book. In terms of the book, I’m unsure about the final length, but I’m thinking novelette or novella, and the genre will be romance (no paranormal aspects like the Earthen Witch universe). If there’s no interest, I can set those projects aside and come back to them later.

So, tell me, my friends, would you like to receive exclusive freebies?

If you have reservations or alternative suggestions, please let me know in the comments.
