Writing Workshop Wednesdays (20)

A new year means a wealth of opportunities for change, happiness, perspective, growth, etc.   On this Wednesday which just so happens to be New Year’s Eve, which five resolutions are topping your list?

Adrianna Pantano

Why do you write?: I write to express my creativity. I write so I can have a way to let my imagination run wild. When I write for fun, ideas start flowing and I never want to stop because I feel like I should add more and more.

Describe where you write.: Sometimes I write in my bed, otherwise just any other relaxing environment.

Who or what is your muse?: My sister, Nicole

Three wishes . . .: 1. To have a successful career where I am happy doing whatever I am doing. 2. Enough money to build a nice home theater when I am older because I am a movie addict. 3. Have a huge family where everyone is always together and visiting. (Lots of children and grandchildren)

Favorite childhood book, and why?: All the Junie B. Jones books. She was young like I was, and I enjoyed reading about all her different experiences

Explain when is your ideal time to write.: Late at night. Right before I go to bed, I sit and reflect a little about the day, so sometimes new ideas pop into my head.

Name a book you would reread again and again, and why.: The Great Gatsby!!!! I am a sucker for older books and love stories. Reading about all the things Gatsby did to be with Daisy was incredible and I loved it!!

E-book or print? Why?: Print. I feel more connected to the book if I can physically hold it in my hands. It just feels more natural since that is the traditional way. Also, E-books give me a headache because I am focusing so hard on the screen.

What would you like readers to take away from your writing?: Happiness. When I write for fun, it is usually something random but positive.
