Ask Jen! – August 21st
Hola my loves!
Today, I’m going to be answering a small selection of some of the questions you sent to me, so I hope I answer them well!
Let’s get started.
Dan asked “What is your favourite thing that you have written?”
I think one of my favourites is Come Dancing from Hysterical Valentine, because it has a very cute retro vibe that I always liked, and I was in a really great space when I wrote it, so it holds a lot of nice memories for me. It’s very romantic, but in a simple and sweet way, which I don’t do often, so it was a nice break from the drama I put my characters through.
Lipstickneverlasts asked “How do you get in the right headspace to write?”
I have a lie down first if possible. This sounds ridiculous, but it really helps to relax me and clear my mind of things that will distract me, so I can focus on what I’m doing. I like to listen to music, but nothing with lyrics, because I’m genuinely afraid of accidental, subconscious plagiarism. I listen to lots of film scores when I write.
Josie asked “What is the first thing you do when you wake up?”
I check my horoscope. I am obsessed with horoscopes. I actually have an entire folder of apps on my phone that is just for horoscopes.
Maya asked “Is there a Tiffany sequel?”
Yes, and no. I have stuff written, I have ideas of what happens, but I haven’t finished it, and I don’t want to say I will if I don’t know I will. Kind of though, yeah.
Gabby asked “What are three of your favorite things?”
Doo wop, strawberry flavoured cosmetics and TV shows with fun theme songs.
That’s all for this week, see you next time 🙂
