Short and Sweet

“Fantasies are more than substitutes for unpleasant reality; they are also dress rehearsals, plans. All acts performed in the real world begin in the imagination.”

- Barbara Grizzuti Harrison

Brooke R. Busse has interviewed me about writing fantasy. Please visit her BLOG. It’s short and sweet.

I hope you're all having a wonderful, warm weekend.


  1. I really loved the interview. Are you a member of S. P. E. W.?

  2. Ooh, I'm heading over to read the interview!

  3. Hi Theresa. Hope the teaching is going well (have been reading your previous post.) I'm off to catch the interview.


  4. This was great! Loved how you told us where you write and when. You are so dedicated :)

  5. Lovely Theresa Milstein!! Yay for your short n sweet interview!!! Loved it!!!!!

    Take care

  6. I just read your interview. Loved it! I look foward to reading your short story.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  7. great interview theresa! I love that you're a fellow fantasy writer--and that you write with a cat on your lap. My cat muffin insists on making my lap her bed particularly when I'm working in the home office.

  8. I'm heading over to read the interview now. I have been indisposed by...flu..

  9. @ The Words Crafter, I'm actually not a fan of SPEW. It was my biggest problem with book 4 because it dragged it down. Not to say I don't agree with elf's rights.

    @ Emy, thanks! Hope you enjoyed it.

    @ L'Aussie, I'm back to daily subbing. Not ideal, but okay so far. Thanks for catching the interview.

    @ Sharon, thank you!

    @ Saumya, it's interesting to hear each writer's process. Between location, music, handwriting or typing, panster or plotter, we're all different.

    @ Old Kitty, thanks. I'm you loved my short and sweet interview.

    @ Choices, I'm glad you want to read my short story. Thanks.

    @ Nutschell, when I have a cat on my lap and the sun on my back, life really doesn't get better than that. I like your name "cat muffin".

    @ Nas, I'm sorry you had the flu. I hope you're on the mend.

  10. I think we are! Some warmer than others... :D <3

  11. Fantastic quote, off to read the interview!

  12. Wonderful interview. Theresa, you're the one! Fellow cat lap writer. :-)

  13. Hi Theresa,

    I just read the interview and commented on Brooke's blog, but I'd like to thank you here as well. I am such a fan of your blog and writing, so it means so much to me that you like mine too.

  14. @ LTM, I heard some people had snow yesterday. Glad it wasn't here!

    @ Bru, glad you like the quote. Thanks for reading the interview.

    @ Robyn, cat makes wonderful muses. Mine is sitting on my lap right now.

    @ Missed Periods, thank you for complimenting my blog and writing. I love your blog. You mentioned you're trying to turn your blog into something else. I wish you success.

  15. Well that is a scary quote. If my imagination is a dress rehearsal, I'm in trouble :)

    Catching up after doing taxes :(

  16. @ Jules, fantasy helping us cope with reality isn't a bad thing.
