These days, most writers are glued to their laptops, tablets, and/or ereaders. A few still swear by print books and typewriters, the question is: Do you move at all?
I have a desktop computer. I'm not a fan of laptops. I also prefer reading print books to any kind of digital screen. As such, I put a lot of love into my print book layouts. (I'm a font and typesetting geek.)
Apple or PC?
PC with Linux! Apple bugs me.
Do you use Scrivener or Word?
Neither! I use WordPerfect, or occasionally OpenOffice. And I use Notepad (well, a Linux equivalent of it) for my e-book formatting.
Do you have any pets? Do they influence your writing?
I used to have pets, when I was a kid. Now I have children. It's a toss-up whether dogs or toddlers are more destructive to everything.
Are you hooked on any science fiction or fantasy shows on TV? If so, which one(s)?
Do you own copies of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings DVDs? The extended version? Do you ever watch them?
Have you seen the first two parts of the The Hobbit? Are you planning to see the final installment?
Are you a Luddite? Or do you prefer to be on the bleeding edge of technology?
What kind of foods do you eat? Are you a health-food-nut or is it strictly junk?
I'm fine with wheat, but I'm allergic to most alternative "healthy" grains. Dairy is excellent. Basically, I eat a carnivorous diet that is almost the opposite of what most "healthy food" junkies will tell you is healthy. And it's the most healthy diet I've ever had in my life. The most important thing to do is to listen to your own body, not listen to what works for other people's bodies.
Do you cook? What is your best/favorite/most popular recipe?
Then I make macaroni and cheese, mix the cooked beef jerky in it, put this on top of two slices of whole wheat toast, and eat it. Yummmm!
