Every writer has downtime. They all have some time in their day when they’re not writing, not researching, not editing or plotting.
What do I do?
Same thing every night, Pinky.
All right, maybe not try and take over the world, but I do allow myself to relax. When I’m not working or writing, I play video games, read books and surf the internet. And sometimes, during each of those, inspiration strikes.
After watching a “True Blood” episode, a thought came to me.
What if…a King has a royal food taster (someone who eats the king’s food to test for poison). But…what if that food taster was a hypochondriac, and so would always thing he was eating poison…and what if the king was paranoid? How would that all play out? But that’s a post for another day!
When I’m not busying with my novels, I’m reading the following authors (not a limited list – there are many others I read!): Anne Bishop, Kim Harrison, Kelly Armstrong, Laurien Berenson, Stephen King, Mercedes Lackey, Cathy Glass and Charlaine Harris. I’m playing games like the Witcher, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Assassin’s Creed.
Fun fact: I raise chickens!
