Write Michelle's Survey



I'm sick and avoiding writing cause I really like this week's author and want to make sure I get it right. Then again, the same thing happens every week: I stress about jamming out the perfect things that will tell people just why a certain really good writer is great in her particular way.

Hey, I've got an ideeyer: what if you help me with this week's package?

If you could make up a Survey Question for Romance: B(u)y the Book, what would it be? Its answer must have at least 3 choices. Check the column for examples.

Maybe I'll use one of yours. And I guess I could throw a couple new books your way if'n I do. I've got an extra Christina Dodd "The Barefoot Princess..." You want to help out a sick girlfriend-in-need, don'tcha?

And, feel free to keep up the UATW convo from yesterday...

Encore! I'm reading this incredible novel by Laura Kinsale called "My Sweet Folly." It's being re-released in spring. Holy cow, it's good.

Encore due! Eloisa James guest-blogs Tuesday, March 28th!

First of all, in carrying on the discussion from yesterday, Rupert Carsington would do very nicely UATW...He is quite snaxy;)

Another Loretta Chase hero who'd be great UATW is Ismal from Captives of the Night...gotta love those reformed bad guys...

I'm not usually one for the romance novel covers either--mostly they make me giggle or turn away in embarassment. But this Lord Perfect guy is different...and I LOVE that there's no woman on the cover. So it's like he's looking out at you from that doorway...wonder how strong the walls are in that room...

Still thinking on the survey question...

LingOL while I'm trying to write!

Here's my question:
What style of writer are you? Fly by the seat of your pants; outline, outline, outline; or it changes with each project.

Hope you feel better Michelle.

Michelle, so sorry you're feeling cruddy! (Once again, I'm only now getting on the blog b/c my stupid school server has blocked my blog sites. Think they know I'm addicted?? =) Oh, I can read the posts, but comments are blocked. Phooey!)

Okay, thinking up a poll. How 'bout something about your favorite kind of hero? What is your favorie type of hero? Dark and brooding, playful rake or hot and hunky (or, provide your own descriptors here_______).

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Hey Rach: sorry bout the censorship. :) Great minds...alike... I actually did that one early on. But it's sure a good one. I wonder if there's a variation?

rachd said...

Sorry about the repeat. I only found you when you came to SR--I had NO idea what I was missing *grin*! ;-)

Hm, let me ponder the poll for a spell...

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Please, don't apologize! This is what I get for trying to pawn off my work on other people. :)

rachd said...

Too bad I can't think of anything else tonight. (I'm interested in the book bribe.;oP) Not to complain, but this actually working 8 hours a day thing is a killer! I'm pooped and my brain is no longer functioning--hence, no good ideas. Oh well.

Oh, and what's better than having someone else do the work for you? Isn't that what Karen Hawkins was blogging about on SR today?

Maybe a great idea will creep in while I'm sleeping...

Aw, sorry you're not feeling well, Michelle. Hopefully today (Wed) you're doing better.

Question(s): What is your favorite plotline? Do scenes reveal themselves randomly or is it like a movie in your head? Which is the book of your heart? If I'm limited to one, choice any of them :)

Stacy~ said...

Okay, ignore me! I'm more tired that I thought. Here's what you're asking for:

What's your favorite plotline: friends to lovers, enemies who fall in love? younger man, older woman? Lower class vs. upper class?

Now, bring on the caffeine....

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

OK, Rach: Keep thinkin, cause I have lots of great new books lying around that I'm dying, I say, dying to get rid of. I never thought I would say that in my entire life, but I keep getting doubles of stuff, etc.

Stacy: I think you're on to something!

amy*skf said...

Stacy, you are good. I love the thing with the scenes--are they random or more like a movie--I am completely obsessed with this ever since J.R. Ward guest blogged here and said she gets everything from the brothers. I on the other hand get beautiful perfect scenes...that have only randomness in common. No linkage--I got no linkage.

Sorry--went off on my own there.

Thanx Michelle & Amy! I am fascinated by the whole writing process but I'm not a writer. I do an okay interview (check out my blog - shameless plug LOL) and so far have interviewed Lori Foster, LuAnn McLane, Susan Lyons and I have more coming through the pipeline - it's all for fun :)

I just love how writers have such different ways of approaching their work, and how it comes to them. Makes me enjoy the stories even more.
