Here are all the wonderful answers to Kate's great questions! Thanks for responding so quickly!
Kate: What books or authors do you think your writing is most similar to?
Jazzy: I think mine is a mix of C.S. Lakin, Sharon Hinck, and Alicia A. Willis! Just my style, but my imagination in the fantasy realm is probably just like Sharon Hinck and C.S. Lakin! I'm not quite so historical is Alicia, but I adore her books!
Justus: G. A. Henty. Everyone who reads my writing compares it to Henty. Maybe because reading Henty gave me my love for reading, which in turn gave me a desire to write. Some other inspirations are John J. Horn (my favorite fiction author), Alicia A. Willis (my editor), and H. Rider Haggard.
Holly: I would have to say my writing style is pretty similar to C.R. Hedgecock and Alicia Willis and occasionally Sarah Maxwell (though I am not fond of her writing style.)
Kate: Do you ever find yourself basing a character off someone you know from a book or real life?
Jazzy: I can't say that they are… Most of the time, I take different strongs from different people to create one character. A balance of the emotions/goals/demeanor.
Justus: Yes. My favorite characters in my writings are the ones I modal after real people I personally know, although I usually mingle several real personalities into one character. I also like experimenting with opposite personalities then my own. It's fun. :)
Holly: Yeah! :) But like Justus, I like to combine several personalities into one person. I haven't done any characters that are based off of real people yet. I would like to, but not exactly sure how to do that. Any suggestions anyone? :)
Kate: If you could have any book written just for you, what would it be about? What genre would it be in?
Jazzy: This one is really hard! I love all types of books, I'm having such a hard time figuring out… probably… fantasy. Yeah, I just love Christian Fantasy, like Sharon Hinck! But I love the goal and the Spiritual elements of From the Dark to the Dawn, so I don't really know! As long as it keeps me thinking clean thoughts and worshipping the King, I'm happy! Tehehe!:)
Justus: My favorite genre is historical fiction. So maybe something surrounding a little-known historical event or character. With suspense, of course. :)
Holly: Hmm... that's a good question. The book would be about a girl who works with dolphins and/or horses. Hmm... that's kinda of a weird combination, but hey, I like dolphins and horses! How about two books? One would be about a girl working with dolphins in some way and the other would be about a girl who works with horses on a ranch. Those would be some awesome books with plenty of suspense, encouragement etc.! Not sure what genre that would be... contemporary maybe?
Although we are taking a break through the month of July for submitting stories, the Writer's Nook will continue however. Does anyone have any new questions or questions that haven't been posted? Let me know and I'll get those posted for you!
