Sometimes, people ask me questions. Sometimes they ask the same question over and over again. I actually haven’t received many questions directly from this blog, but I have from places like twitter, or email , or from just talking to people face to face like a caveman. But I’m going to answer some frequently asked questions and not just because I’m avoiding my current writing project.
The first, and most annoying question has to do with my doodle, Skelly-
Q: What is Skelly? Does the rainbow mean you’re gay? I mean… I’m not saying that’s a bad thing… I’m just wondering if you are. Does the smiling skeleton mean that you enjoy death? Cause that’s weird.
A: The rainbow represents creativity. The skeleton represents full transparency. That’s the way I view art or how art should be. A smiling skeleton standing in front of a rainbow is what I picture in my head when I think of art. If that makes you uncomfortable or freaks you out, then, sorry not sorry.
Q: Why does the format for your blog keep changing?
A: I have this perfect image for my blog, but I can’t find it anywhere for free, and I’m too cheap to spend money on a blog. So I keep searching for this perfect look, but I can’t find it anywhere. Also, I’m fickle. But I think that the “Theme” I have now is fine.
Q: What gave you the idea for Wrote the Woman?
A: I can’t remember.
Q: How often do you write poetry?
A: Not very often. In fact, I’ll probably run out of poems pretty soon. I usually just have an idea pop into my head, sit down for fifteen to thirty minutes writing out my idea and call it a “poem”. Sometimes ideas turn into five poems. Sometimes I only come up with one poem a week. I just have a large stash, that’s how I’m able to post every day.
Q: Why do you call yourself M.L. Wright? Are you trying to be like J.K. Rowling?
A: Trying to figure out my “pen name” was one of the most enjoyable, brain racking decisions after deciding to become a writer. I didn’t need to have a pen name, but how boring would it be to hear from another Madison? My middle name’s Liahona, so that brought some uniqueness to the table, but I didn’t know what to do with that. For a while, I thought about calling myself “Lia Warner” but I didn’t like that either. So, I just rolled with M.L. Wright. And to all you million Madisons out there, I feel your pain.
That’s all that I can remember right now, unless I were to nitpick and do every single question I was ever asked, but that would go on forever.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. I LOVE answering questions. And this would be the perfect place to ask.
