The Writing Life
1. When do you write?
Juli: I write here and there all day but my best time is usually after dinner.
2. How much time per day do you spend on your writing?
Juli: Four hours or so. Sometimes more, sometimes less. It depends on the day. I try to not to do more than 1000 words a day, otherwise my carpal tunnel flares up. And that can knock me down for a few days.
3. What has been the most surprising reaction to something you’ve written?
Juli: I got more chatter—negative chatter— about the cover than anything else about the book. “Judging a book by its cover” is such a cliché, I was shocked people actually do. Because only in instances of Poser art, I do not judge a book by its cover. And the reaction I got to the ghost in the story was surprising because it wasn’t written to be ghost story necessarily; I expected my witches and my gods to be the focus of the story so that to see everyone so drawn to the ghost bowled me over. He seems to be like my Boba Fett because as you know, George Lucas thought of Boba Fett as just a bit character but the fans went nuts over him. So I guess if Kenner made action figures to accompany my story, his would sell best. ;)
4. Other than your family, what has been your greatest source of support?
My friends and fellow writers Jolene Dawe, Patty G. Henderson, and S.G. Rogers and Kathy Carmichael. Without them, I probably would’ve given up long ago.
5. How do you deal with rejection and/or negative reviews?
For the rejections I go on to the next guy on my list, for negative reviews, thankfully I haven’t received many yet, but it’s best to ignore them.
