Welcome back to Writing for Christ Regina Jennings, I am excited to have you here for a second time. :)
Thank you, Casey. I appreciate you inviting me. It’s always nice to get together with other writers!
What has changed in your writing life since you were last here?
My writing has fallen into more of a routine. Before I was contracted I wrote when I had time. Now, it’s part of my schedule, for better or worse. Also, I know what to expect of the process. I can anticipate what’s coming next with edits and marketing requests.
A new development is that I’m involved in the launch of a small boutique press. Redbud Press is publishing mid-length romances with three coming out in March 2015. We’re really excited about the authors we’re working with.
What recent read stood out to you as truly spectacular?
I’m just crazy about Stephanie Landsem’s Living Water Series. I was blessed to get to read an ARC of The Tomb and it absolutely blew me away. Stephanie writes Biblical fiction so the stories are always familiar and yet she manages to sneak in at least one honest-to-goodness surprise in every story. Reading her books always leads to a worship experience.
What do you find the most enjoyable part of writing or connecting with readers?
My favorite part of writing is getting to talk about the plot and characters with other avid readers. Sometimes this happens while I’m plotting, but even better is when the book releases and I get to introduce these characters I love to my friends.
What do you find the most ideal atmosphere for writing? Do you ever get those surroundings? :)
Rarely. I love to write outside in my front yard beneath the sycamore trees, but it’s really hard to find that perfect time. In Oklahoma there aren’t many days that the weather cooperates, and even when it does, it’s hard to find the right time of day. Usually, it’s too bright to see the laptop, but when it starts to get dark the bugs hurl themselves against the glowing screen. Gross.
Okay, something fun for those writers out there: In what point of your writing career did you
surprise yourself by writing the most words ever in the shortest amount of time?
I think my max has been 3000 words in a day. I should’ve clocked it so I could tell you how many hours it took, but I usually don’t get very long stretches of uninterrupted time, so it probably took most of the day. Not very impressive, huh?
Thanks for being here again! It has been a joy and we wish the very best with your novels.
Thank you, Casey. You’re a wonderful hostess!
