What themes, settings, motifs, scenes, or other elements do you find recurring in your work?
1. School- I write middle grade and YA so school comes into play a lot.
2. Sports- For some reason I like to give my characters something sporty to do. I think this is because I really liked being on swim team when I was a kid. The thing I have to watch for is that I'm not writing about the next Lebron James or Joe Mauer or Brett Favre.
3. Theater and Costumes. Last year's NaNoWriMo was set at a theater camp but the MG novel that I've been working on for a while features a school mascot costume. What can I say, I worked for Sesame Street Live, I've worked for CostumeRentals. Costumes are kinda my thing.
