L.M. Stull is a fiercely dedicated writer. Through the Facebook group she has started called Fellow Writers, I’ve met some wonderful people who now have a place to network with other writers. Her warmth and supportive nature make the forum a great place for authors of all genres to share advice, ask for feedback, and showcase their work.
It’s now my pleasure to showcase the ever-delightful, L.M. Stull.

As a young, energetic writer, everything seemed to be going right in her world when she was offered a junior writing position in the Marketing Department of a very prestigious invention firm.

Inside L.M. Stull’s mind
Which words or phrases do you most overuse? Oh that’s easy! Delectable. I seem to like to use that word way tooooo often.
What turns you on creatively? What turns me on? How naughty…oh wait, you said creatively…right, um, a variety of factors really. I have to say I love just sitting at a park or coffee shop and people watching. Get A LOT of ideas from that. I can also get pretty damn creative when I drink wine. 😉
What is your idea of perfect happiness? To curl up by the fire with a good book and cup of coffee (or wine).
What quality do you most admire in a man? Oh definitely a sense of humor. I am a total sucker for a guy who can make me laugh. 🙂 Of course, a cute butt doesn’t hurt either. 😉
What quality do you most admire in a woman? I would have to say the same, sense of humor (not the cute butt part). I really can’t stand people who are too serious. Life if too short, just laugh already.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Book store owner! I do hope this will become a reality in the not too distant future.
If you could choose what to come back as, what would it be? Um, me, because I totally rock. 😉 In all seriousness, a werewolf. Is that an option? Cause I think I’d make a pretty hot one, don’t ya think?
What do you consider your greatest achievement? Hmmm, I would have to say my writing over this past year. I really took charge of my life and went after what I wanted.
What is the trait you most deplore in others? Stuckupedness, is that a word? Well, it is now! No time for people who think they are all that and a bag of chips (with the exception of me, of course).
What is your present state of mind? Calm with a little bit of crazy. I’m a pretty easy-going gal (unless you try and steal my wine or coffee, then you’re in trouble, hence the crazy part).
What is your favorite curse word? Fuck. Who doesn’t like that word? I mean the possibilities for using it are endless!
What is your motto? Bob Marley said it best: Don’t Worry, Be Happy. That’s my motto.
