Carol and I lounged in silk pyjamas, had grapes peeled for us by hunky men and sipped on our Champers (after she'd parked her pink 2CV - which you can see in all its glory over at her blog).
So, Carol, describe yourself as a writer in five words.
Perfectionist, adventurer, pantster, OCDer (is there a word?), worrier.
You've been invited on Big Brother - Writers Special! Do you accept?
No - the thought of lots of other stressy writers appals!!
Dream time. Ultimate dinner party? You can have anyone dead or alive there - who would you have and why?
Charles Dickens - pick his brain about Victorian London
William Blake - fascinating man
Seamus Heaney - sit at his feet
How do you deal with the dreaded bad review - are you a sulker of a shrugger?
Bit of both, though so far reviews haven't been bad.
If you were offered a squillion pounds to never write again, would you take it?
No. Absolutely no. Never. Never ever ever. Hahaha.
It's your dream week as a writer - ANYTHING is possible! Tell us what happens.
My books get reviewed enthusiastically in the press. I sell. I buy a Tuscan Villa and a Maserati for my husband. Following week: back to the laptop .... sigh.
QUICK FIRE ROUND
Planner or Winger?
Winger, but with an outline plan
Night or Morning?
Afternoon - from about 2ish
Doer or procrastinator?
The latter leading to the former - though will always 'do' if there's a deadline awaiting
Writing/first draft or editing?
Tea or coffee?
Coffee. IN a bucket. All day!!!
