Interview with Miss Jack Lewis Baillot

Introducing the not impossibly, but just a bit unlikely, Miss Jack Lewis Baillot for the 1 Word Interview Challenge:


1. What's your current favorite word?

            Discombobulated  


 2. In one word, what inspires you?
 
            Stories 


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


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

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


6. Share the best writing advice/tool/quote that helps you. (please limit to one sentence)
 
           "Cure for writer's block? Blow something up(in the story.)" Scott Westerfeld 


7. What's your current project? (this is the one where you can write a bit more)
 
                 Currently I am nearing the end of the second book in The Legend of the Blade series. This has always been an exciting writing project - I've been planning the series for about five years - but getting to finally write it down has been even more exciting than I ever thought it would be.
 
Miss Jack Lewis Baillot is one of the most fun and inspiring bloggers I know. I love the words she's chosen, and I'm tempted to go blow something up in my current project . . . but I'm formatting, so that might not be wise. :)
 
Miss Jack has written and published Haphazardly Implausible, Abolished Impracticality, The Story Collection and a Stretch of Loyalty. Soon, she'll be releasing A Test of Loyalty! In addition to her talents in writing, Miss Jack has a talent for finding excellent quotes, and has a love of Sherlock, Psych, Captain America, fantasy, steampunk, and unlikely heroes! Check out her blog, However Improbable!

What a fun interview! And I love the word "discombobulated." :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Blow something up - great advice!
I like your one word.
And now I want to know what your desk looks like.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Love that word. It reminds me of being dissed and dismissed.

Nick Wilford said...

Discombobulated sums up how I feel most of the time! Great interview!

M Pax said...

I like the 'blow something up' advice. I feel discombobulated today.

LD Masterson said...

If you blow something up, would it be discombobulated?

(Okay, I'm reaching.)

Lady Lilith said...

Nice interview. Thanks for sharing it.

Barbara Watson said...

Blow something up in the story. Yes. This works. :-)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Ditto on both of those! Thanks for stopping by, Madeline!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Yes, it is!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks for stopping by, Cherie!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Ditto on all three of those thoughts, Alex!

Tyrean Martinson said...

But not disassembled, right? Sorry. Just had to go with another dis- word. Thanks for stopping by, Maurice!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Me too. :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

I've been seriously wanting to blow up some of my grade sheets - but I will get done today, I hope.

Tyrean Martinson said...

No, that was funny. :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks for stopping by, Lady Lilith!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Yes, and I keep picturing different ways to blow things up. Blowing up soap bubbles, balloon animals, and with CGI special affects. :)

Heather Holden said...

Discombobulated is such a great word! Stories often inspire me, too...

randi lee said...

Very cool and interesting responses!

Jack said...

It is fun to say, unfortunately it is hard to get into sentences

Jack said...

It works too! (Blowing things up in the book.) I''ve done it

Jack said...

It is covered in books 8-D

Jack said...

Dismissed is fun too.

Jack said...

Same for me too, I think that might be one reason I like it so much

Jack said...

Writing is always better when you can blow something up

Jack said...

It was when I did it 8-D

Jack said...

Thank you 8-)

Jack said...

It does 8-D

Jack said...

I always want to write after reading or watching a really good story

Jack said...

Thank you 8-)
