I’d like to thank The Grimm Report for being so awesome as to allow me to interview them… and as always, for having such an awesome blog that I personally love…
1. What’s your name? Where can we find you? Blog? Twitter? Facebook?
We are The Grimm Report! You can find us at GrimmReport.com, @grimmreport on twitter, or high atop the beanstalk.
2. Other than writing, what is your favorite hobby or thing you enjoy for fun?
Oh, lets see… we love answering questionnaires. We enjoy baking pies. But most of all we love to keep up with all the goings-on of fairytale characters.
3. How long have you been writing? How many books have you written? They don’t have to be published.
We have been writing nearly as long as we have been reading. Things really took off for us after the first grade. We have been making flipbooks even longer than that, although they were never published.
4. What genres do you like writing the most? And why? Is this genre the same as the one you prefer to read?
We love to write articles covering politics, business, lifestyle, and celebrity gossip, so that we my keep all of our lovely readership well informed. Our favorite books to flip through are cookbooks. We love to make sweets and invite the neighborhood children over.
5. Are you currently writing anything now? If so tell us about it? If not make something up…
Oh yes, we are working on several new articles for publication on the grimmreport.com. We are also striving to put together a collection of previous articles in a new book.
6. How do you typically begin your projects? Do you create outlines and character profiles or jump in head first with the initial idea? And do you focus on just one at a time?
Every good story begins with a glass of wine. Then, after two or three, we are thoroughly convinced that we are half as creative as Hemingway ever was, or at least nearly as intoxicated.
7. What aspect of your writing do you consider your strength? Your weakness?
Our naïveté. Our Speling.
8. After publishing, the next trouble facing writers is marketing. What do you typically do when marketing your novel? Do you have tips you’d like to share?
After publishing we spread the word using carrier pigeon and twitter, but only one of those methods is actually effective.
9. What advice would you give a writer who is starting out?
Write every day. Learn to accept criticism. Never get complacent. And never eat an apple given to you by a stranger.
