Yesterday, we did a book announcement for a indie author. She is not one of the authors that works for us, but we promote all Indies! Today, we thought that you would want to meet the author.
Cait Marie is a Coffee House Writer who also is one of the ones running Functionally Fictional. She has her own blog. The book we told you about is the first of a series of YA books she is publishing.
We asked her how long she has been creative. She responded “I started writing in 2015, but I’ve been creative in other ways (mostly art) my whole life.”
She is one that also supports Indie authors on her Functionally Fiction blog. It features new books and book reviews. It’s fairly awesome.
We asked her how she deals with writer’s block… To be told that she doesn’t really suffer from writer’s block per se. It’s more that she has some days that she just can’t/don’t want to write. She is working on more consistent writing habits. For example, she is trying to write for an hour at least four days a week. Shek joined a group that does writing sprints four nights a week, which is helping a lot.
She has two cats… Koda and Azriel. They are obnoxious, but She loves them. We would love to see them. 👀👀
When asked what she does with her time… “Most of my time goes to reading and writing, but I also love creating spreads in my bullet journal, painting, listening to music, going to concerts, and watching movies and TV.” That sounds like a lot of creativity to us.
We also asked about what got her writing. “I started writing one day partially out of boredom and partially because a book I read didn’t go exactly how I wanted it to. I decided to write my own book so I could include anything I wanted, but I had no idea at the time that I would end up here. I only wrote academically before that and hated it. However, I have always loved reading. My love of books is really what got me where I am today. It’s why I started Functionally Fictional, which led to me becoming involved in the book community.” We are glad she did.
