Girl on the Verge, Nora Roberts, Carpaccio, Camping & More

The Mermaids are going nuts today. Why? Because it’s one of our most favorite days in the lagoon. One of our fishy sisters has a book release!!! [Insert Glitter Toss]

We are so excited for Mermaid-Pintip and her new book, GIRL ON THE VERGE. All the info is below. But first, allow me to share my favorite Pintip-memory. A couple years ago, we were at the fabulous Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro, MD, home to romance novel queen, Nora Roberts. There’s an entire room devoted to all of Nora’s books and that’s where Pintip and I discovered our shared love of Nora books, specifically the old 1990s and early 2000s collection. We’re talking Calhoun sisters, MacGregors, Stanislovskis, etc. I think we talked about these wonderful books for about an hour.

Where do I Write?

Hiya lagoon! Pintip Mermaid here to talk to you about my favorite writing places….

Mermaid post writing place

 

Medium on which I write: my cell phone! I’ve written and revised my last six novels entirely on my cell phone, with the screen locked in portrait position, so that the keys are close enough together to tap without pain

 

Most unusual place I’ve written: flat on my back underneath a glass coffee table, with my laptop open and facedown on the glass, dictating into my microphone

 

Most productive place I’ve written: in the car, at the parking lot library, for eight entire hours. Two words: no distractions!

 

Most regular place I write: on the recliner in my bedroom, since the neck and shoulder support is good when my fibromyalgia flares up

 

Most chaotic place I’ve written: Today! At the kitchen table at my friend’s house, with five kids, one toddler, and one dog running around, making slime, eating…

Cannot Write Without by Pintip Dunn

The question in the lagoon this month has been: What’s the one thing you cannot write without?

We’ve had a plethora of fabulous answers from writers all over the world. Today’s answer comes from: me!!!!

********************

This answer will not surprise any of the mermaids or anyone who knows me… Can you guess? FINAL COVER

My answer is: I cannot write without my iPhone.

I have long-standing fibromyalgia/RSI, which means I can’t type on a keyboard without debilitating pain.

Before smart phones, I coped by having a typist, taking exams orally (even the bar exam!), and using a voice-activation program such as Dragon Naturally Speaking. I made it work for about ten years, but I hated every minute of it. For whatever reason, I just don’t enjoy dictating my words.

And then, I got my first iPhone, and my life changed. I discovered I could type on the screen’s keyboard with minimal pain, so long as it was locked in “portrait” position….
