Writing Warriors United Spotlight Author Interview with L.D. Nash

Writing Warriors United Spotlight Author Interview with L.D. Nash 

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on? None yet, but one day I hope to travel to Scotland! 

What is the first book that made you cry? Honestly, I've never had a book make me cry. I've wanted to throw them through a window and hunt the author down to spank their butt, but I've haven't come across one that made me cry. I'm a tough cookie 😀

Does writing energize or exhaust you? Both! 

What are common traps for aspiring writers? In my opinion, a common trap is not having their work professionally edited. I've made the mistake of thinking my editing skills are good enough. GET THAT BOOK PROFESSIONALLY EDITED ✍

What is your writing Kryptonite? Someone or something bursting my "zone bubble." When I write, my mind enters the world I'm crafting and everything around me disappears. If I'm interrupted, then I'm useless for hours. 

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?

I've recently started reaching out to other authors, especially if I've read their work, and Danielle Nevins, Christine Crawford, Beth Wordsell, Lorelei James, Sarah Wilson, S. J. West, Sherrilyn McQueen, and Lori Handeland are all super awesome! 

How did publishing your first book change your process of writing? It didn't. 

What was the best money you ever spent as a writer? On professional services like book covers and editing. 

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal? My spirit animal is the dire wolf. I'm relentless in my pursuit of storytelling and I don't back down. 

What does literary success look like to you? Seeing readers love my characters as much as I do. And a movie deal wouldn't hurt 😉

How do you select the names of your characters? My characters pretty much name themselves. There have been times when I've dragged out the 1001 BABY NAMES book in order to select a good fit. 

Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find? I do! I place easter eggs referencing pop culture movies and fandoms, and other authors. 

What is your favorite childhood book? Bunnicula, hands down. 

What is the most difficult part of your artistic process? Getting my muse to cooperate. Im always in creative mode, and that really slows things down. I joked on twitter that my muse is a moose named "Crunches Loudly," and he's always hangry. 

When you die – what would you like the universe to say to you as you walk into the next life? Congratulations, you made a difference in someone's life.
