1 Word Interview with M Pax, and Celebrations!

As a newish feature on my blog, I'm hosting a series of guests for "1 Word" Interviews! My hope is to highlight authors and bloggers in super short interviews that will give you a taste of their awesomeness and make you long for more. Then you can follow the links I'll provide and get to know them better through their blogs and books. Last week, L. Diane Wolfe was here, and this week, I'm happy to host SciFi author extraordinaire, M Pax.

1. What's your current favorite word?

I’ve been quite obsessed with ‘back’ and ‘follow’ lately.

2. In one word, what inspires you?

 Oregon

3. What's one word that describes your writing habits?

 Disciplined


4. What's one word that you wish you could get rid of in your writing?

 ‘that’
oh, that word!

5. What's one word that describes your writing desk?

Piles
me too. :)

6. Share the best writing advice/tool/quote that helps you:

 Save the Cat.

Great book!
7. What's your current project?

 Beyond the Edge, Backworlds 4 is with the editor. I’m working on an epic fantasy and paranormal series until it comes back.

M Pax is hosting a Realms Faire this coming November! This Faire includes many fun events!

Save the Cat is an awesome book!
And I knew you'd end up keeping Clyde. You named him. End of story.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Alex - right on both counts. :)

Laura said...

Aww glad you're keeping Clyde, that's great :)

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I wish I could say I was as "disciplined" as M! :)

Love the name "Clyde" - glad you kept him. And good work on the biking and riding!

Michelle Wallace said...

Mary is one of the most disciplined writers in the sphere!
Well done on the biking/riding Tyrean... sounds like you're into it!

Great interview! Mary is extremely disciplined. I'm in awe of how much she does.

Congrats on the new addition to your family. Clyde is so cute! Have a lovely weekend.

Julie Flanders said...

I'm also inspired by Mary's discipline. Something I totally lack LOL.

So glad you adopted Clyde, he's a lucky guy to land with such a nice family. Good luck to your daughter on her race!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I grew up in Oregon and it is very inspiring.

I have heard so much about Save the Cat. I need to get it now. Glad you decided to keep Clyde.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Laura - we're glad too. :)

Madeline -I wish I was more disciplined like Mary too! And Thanks!

Michelle - M Pax is definitely one of the most disciplined writers and bloggers around! And yes, I'm into biking, although there are those days when I don't want to get moving, but my husband gets me going anyway.

Christine - She totally awes me too. And Clyde is super cute and fun to have around.

Julie - it's something I need to work on too. Clyde is so sweet I can't imagine how he ended up on his own, and we are glad to have him. And Thanks!

L. Diane - Oregon is a very beautiful place.

Rachna - it's a great book! And thanks! We're glad too! :)
