Thank you Elf for asking us another question 🙂
Elf: Have any of you reviewers been bitten by the bug to write your own stories? Happy anniversary to you!
No thank you! I am not creative enough for that and much prefer reading.
I was bitten before I ever started to review for the blog. I have several books out and another one coming out soon. I always say I was a reader first though.
I love writing stories. Have done for as long as I can remember. But they’re just for me and I’ll never try to publish them. Mainly because I don’t think I could deal with the criticism. While I’m pretty good at dishing it out, I know that I’m a big baby about getting it back. And lets face it, some reviewers out there are pretty vicious!!
Ah no! I consider my reviews to be mini stories 😊
I did write some fanfiction and something I think I would like to try to write an m/m book but I am way to busy with life , blogging and I love to read way to much I guess 🙂
Ha, yes. And I did. I wrote under a pseudonym and didn’t tell my fellow reviewers, only Dani. So when someone reviewed it at the blog, it was an honest review. The reviewer was shocked later when she found out it was my book and told me she was glad she didn’t gave it a bad review or she’d feel guilty. That’s nonsense of course, because a review is a personal opinion and you can’t be mad at someone for not liking something. It’s like being mad someone doesn’t like the color blue…silly.
I love the written word. I love falling into a story and just being there…however, i don’t have the heart to write. I would rather read then write like that. I want to fall into the stories, not tell them.
I give MAJOR PROPS to those who can…otherwise my life would be rather dull.
Nope!! I don’t have a story in me that wants to get out…. and writing would take away time from reading! I am quite happy as a reader and reviewer.
This one is easy for me to answer. Yes, I caught the bug. I published a novella of my own in March and have two books coming , I am also working on a Gothic horror/ghost story outside the m/m genre.
