I love what I do, so I was thrilled when my writer friend Kristin Nador asked me to participate in this “My Writing Process – Blog Tour.”
Go check out Kristin’s blog called “Kristin Nador Writes Anywhere” (www.kristinnador.com)–she really does write anywhere.
1) What am I working on?
My fantasy, Hunter Moon, is almost finished. I’ve been heavy in revisions since I decided my antagonist was superfluous and my main character wasn’t very likeable. I’m also wrapping up revisions on my middle grade book (State Secret Keepers #1).
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Strong female characters aren’t that unusual, but I like to create stories where the women or girls succeed when they embrace a partnership with someone else, someone other. That other person can be a man, a brother, a sister, a friend, or some
thingone else. It’s more about overcoming differences and finding harmony.
3) Why do I write what I do?
Because I love these stories and they play in my thought until I start writing them down. I love that Science Fiction and Fantasy give me freedom to create new universe laws. I write middle grade stories for my girls (especially Armadillo). Mockingbird and Bluebonnet are old enough for Young Adult stories, and I have a few ideas for them.
4) How does your writing process work?
Since I work full time during the day, freelance sometimes, and do a million other things, I write whenever and wherever I can. I’m also somewhere between a pantser (write wherever the characters lead me) and a plotter (trying to guide the characters into a more coherent plan). Maybe I’m a recovering pantser. 😀
Next Monday, my writing pals are going to post their answers. Go check out their blogs (now and later!):
- Debra Kristi—A work-in-progress superhero mom by day, a married pre-princess Cinderella by night, with a 24/7 cast of characters dictating stories in her head.
- Kristy K. James—Former cop wannabe – turned mom – turned writer, spinning tales in the midst of a chaotic zoo full of stray animals she couldn’t say no to.
Thanks again, Kristin, for asking me to join the blog hop. It was fun! 🙂
