What are your favorite and least favorite questions people ask you about your writing?
First, my favorite perhaps would-well, I like answering questions regarding my writing, but the favorite is perhaps the genres I write or discussing the themes or elements that's in my writing. Like what sort of stuff I write. I also like getting questions as to how my brand fits with my writing because I am able to further explain and introduce myself. I just get excited when I am able to discuss writing related topics or topics that relate to business. That's basically the only thing I talk about all day everyday.
The least favorite would have to be I guess questions that pressure me as why I am not published yet. I have explained countless times how I have been improving my writing because I knew my WIPs needed lots of work, especially my first book which I will publish first. I feel people shouldn't stress and pressure me about how long I've been writing without anything published yet. Unfortunately, this is what I've mostly ran across with other writers and people who feel they are of an authority figure to me because of my age. I may be young, but I haven't been wasting my time within my years. I'm just as serious about writing as older writers. If I wasn't, there's no way I would have spent so many years trying to make my writing better, nor would I have been this committed to writing.
That's why I do feel the stereotypes toward young writers such as myself needs to end. Well, I am tired of the media giving their poor analysis on Millennials. Call me a child, okay fine, but enough with stereotyping Millennials and Teens who write.
