Sue's Interview with ericastwilight about her fic 'Kiss me now, Kiss me never'



One of the MOST prolific writers in fandom I mean it check out her FFnet profile she has 36 stories up there! when I think about it that makes my head spin to get out a barely four thousand word O/S it took 6 people plus me 3 weeks ! 

I read almost ALL of Erica's stuff so when I saw she had a new one coming out I was all giddy 

THEN I found out that not only was it my fav genre AU human it also had a supernatural twist to it 

two people are cursed if he kisses anyone more than 3 times they hate him 

If she kisses anyone AT ALL they fall madly in love with her 

Sounds like a sticky situation for these two 

now don't go thinking that Bella sees Edward and wants to kiss him, she views her curse as just that 

This fic looks at the danger of obsessive love and the insane things it drives people to do 

there are so many things to look at in this story how this curse came to be and why. What will happen to these two?How do they deal with the curse? 

One thing you know about Ericastwilight aka Emarroquin is that you can expect the unexpected

Here is her summary:
A curse spanning generations. For one, unrequited love. For the other, all consuming hate. Together can they break it?

So join me as I give her my silly 21 Q quiz about her fic 'Kiss me now, Kiss me Never'
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What was it that gave you the ‘spark’ for your story?   Was it a picture? A moment or event? Can you remember the initial inspiration?
The movie Never Been kissed what happens is two people can't kissed and what would happen and I played with the idea till I came up with the curse my mind works in strange ways

Do you have a particular process when it comes to your writing, perhaps a certain mood, environment or music? Do you have any ‘triggers’ to get you in the writing mood?
ummm uh depending on what I am writing if it is a love scene I need music I try to stay away from any distractions usually a notebook and a pen I can't write on a computer because I have internet access and I get distracted so I will stop writing

Give us an elevator pitch. Say you’re in an elevator with a prospective reader for 2 minutes – what would you tell them about the story?
expect the unexpected ummm there is gonna be more two lovers must find the pages of a book that will determine their future
  
Do you picture particular actors for your characters, or are they someone else entirely? If so, who? 
I think go with Rob and kristen most of the time I see evangiline lilly as bella but Rob is too young for most of my fics

Is the story all planned out or do you do it as a fly by the seat of your pants thing? 

it is all planned out I do not write outlines but I have the milestones all planned out

Have you got any other projects going on? Any planned for the future? 

I have a contest entry I wrote that I would like to expand on but it is for an anon one I cant' talk about

I am working on a novel for publishing
and a screen play
and I am writing a what if fic based on Womanizer it is an AU of my own fic

What was it that brought you to Twilight fanfic?  What is it that has kept you here (besides your own writing)
I was at borders looking for something to read I saw two young women reading twilight I read a few pages bought it I read the first book in one day then bought the rest of them the next day.
I did a google search on twilight and looked at Edward and Bella.net and then i went on the fic and that is when I started writing

fan fiction helps my imagination keep going it provides a different reality for me to step out of for a while it gives a place to escape

Do you have a background in writing?  Has the fanfic experience expanded your creativity?
I used to write a lot in high school and as a child but no real background

How about your creative self-confidence?  By nature writers tend to be a notoriously insecure lot so how are you finding the online writing experience?
I have confidence in my ideas and writing ability but my grammar I am insecure about if someone does not like my idea I tell them there are lots of fics out there so I don't really care  
 

Do you tell your friends and family that you’re an online author with a devoted following, or is this something that you tend to keep for yourself?
my family does know but they do not know my name or read stuff so that is fine with me

Is there a particular character in your story that you identify with the most? 
not really because this is two people that are not allowing themselves  to  fall in love because they cant kiss so no not really

Which RL author(s) inspires you?
Elloras k it is an erotica site but thye have a bunch of list of books
nora Roberts
I am not reading anything new it has been a while

Did any FF authors inspire you? What was it that had you reading FF and thinking “I could do this”?
My first fan fic I think it was Mischief makerone miami at twilight and then obsessing over Edward Lady of the Night 

Give us a Random Fact about yourself
I have been working with my husband and my father in a construction company for over 20 yrs and I know how to handle a nail gun

If you could have 15 minutes with any Edward FF or SMs which one would you choose and what would you do?
(If you do not LIKE any of the Edwards feel to substitute an actor here. Rob, Kellan, PFach or Jackson)
Bruce willis since moonlighting I have been enchanted with him I would sit and have a burger or a cup of coffee I love everything that he has done I would have a conversation well a kiss would be nice too

An Edward i choose one of my own from Punch me love me save me

What is your FanFic Pet peeve?
predictability in fanfiction if I can analyze a story and know what is going to happen in the first 3 chapters and I am usually right

What is your Fandom Pet peeve?
when someone takes something out of context and blows it up for example someone gets a flame and then someone else goes over attacks the suposed flamer on behalf of the flamee Fandom reminds me of office politics Twitter and LJ are the watercoolers

the hype around a story and you get disappointed and it does not live up to it

The cheating in fics cheating wives boyfriends in fics

What did you want to be when you grow up?
An Archeologist. I wanted to be Indiana Jones not the hat I wanted the whip
   

Anything else you would like to add?
I dont think so just look forward to more stuff coming soon
