Patricia Gligor’s Responses to Marilyn Meredith’s Questions
Patricia at the Launch for Mixed Messages
1. What are your writing goals?
My dream goals or my realistic goals? My dream goals include seeing my books on bestseller lists across the country and having them made into movies. My realistic goals are to continue to write books for my Malone mystery series and to write some standalone mystery novels. I have one in particular in mind. It’s based on a short story I wrote several years ago.
2. Are there other goals you have – such as something on your bucket list – I’d be surprised to hear about?
Yes. I love to travel and I love the Spanish language. Since I’ve already been to Puerto Rico and Mexico, my bucket list includes trips to a few Latin American countries. I’m also a lighthouse enthusiast and the ocean is my favorite place to go so, of course, more trips to the coast/s are on my list too.
3. What is the hardest thing about the writing life?
The hardest thing for me is finding the time to accomplish everything I want to do. Writing, blogging and promoting all take huge blocks of time and I don’t usually have nearly as much time to devote to them as I’d like. To me, it’s ironic that “life” gives us the material to write about but “life” often takes away from our time to write.
4. Do you enjoy blogging? Why or why not?
I do. I especially enjoy getting to know the writers (like you, Marilyn) and the readers I “meet” on my blog and on the blogs I visit.
5. What are you working on right now?
My current project is the third novel for my Malone Mystery series. I hope to have it completed by the end of summer. Like the first two books, Mixed Messages and Unfinished Business, the story takes place on the west side of Cincinnati in what appears to be a peaceful, safe neighborhood.
