Learning about writing from everyone around you
I firmly believe that you can learn from everyone you come in contact with. Whether they are writers themselves or not, by really getting to know them you can expand your knowledge of human nature, which helps in all aspects of writing.
On that note, I have writing questions for you. You don't even have to answer every question, but (as many of you are probably aware) my life has been pretty unstable lately. Good, but unstable, and I'm trying to do everything I can to learn and resettle things. So basically, I could really use any advice or ideas you've got:
-Plotter or pantser? And how do you specifically go about doing your plotting/pantsing?
-What is your writing schedule like? Morning? Evening? 3:47-5:02 AM?
-Do you listen to music when you write? If yes, what music?
-Do you have a daily/weekly word count goal, and what is it?
-What character types are your favorite?
-Is it worth starting a Tumblr blog in addition to this blogger one? I'm leaning towards yes?
-When is the right time to start a Facebook fan page?
-What are your favorite ways to get out and meet people? Network with people online?
-Do you have any specific topics you want addressed on this blog, or blog suggestions in general?
Those are my questions for right now. I'm sorry I've been asking so many questions of you guys lately, and some of the same questions a lot too, but I really appreciate your support and ideas and it helps more than you know. Even just knowing people are out there sympathizing and dealing with the same things I'm dealing with helps too. And see, as I settle and learn, I'll be able to give back more and more, so it all comes back around to you, right? :)
