My Writing Process

I was tagged by the uber awesome super ninja Keith Melton, who is a fantasy writer and part time were-sloth. To read his post on his writng process click HERE to read his post:

1)     What am I working on?

Right now I’m working on the second book in an upcoming Halloween trilogy as well as revising a

menage featuring a healing witch and tiger shifter brothers who claim her as their mate.


2)     How does my work differ from others of its genre?

All of my stories are Interracial but that’s only one aspect of the stories. I try to change up the rules of the worlds I’m in to make them stand out. For example in  a recent WIP I had to figure out a way change the rules of vampires. I’ve written vampires before but I’ve put them in a more traditional respect but for this particular story I wanted to try something different to explain their origins.

 


3)     Why do I write what I do?

I love the worlds of sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal and contemporary. I grew watching TV shows and movies set in those genres. I write because the characters in my head refuse to stop talking to me, demanding their stories and ambushing me when I’m most vulnerable to give me bits and pieces of their lives. Then they withhold their stories from me until I give them what they want whatever it is. So I must write to ease the voices in my head and satisfy my curiosity as well as contribute to the genres that I love.

 


4)     How does your writing process work?

My writing process can change sometimes depending on whether or not the words are flowing.  I need background noise whether Rainy Mood (Thanks Aurora Black for introducing me to the site) or music from my iTunes Writing Playlist or You Tube. Sometimes when stuck I send bits and pieces to writing friends or just bounce off ideas and scenarios. In between spurts of writing I play FB games to keep my stress level from rising. Coming off of writer’s block I’ve had problems with the flow of wordage and because they don’t come out as they used to to temper that stress I turn to distraction. Sometimes it helps and sometimes it adds to the issues it all depends on how things are going with the WIP.

 

For Mon June 23rd continuation of the tour I tagged Jodi Redford : Jodi Redford pens wicked hot tales and surfing the interwebs for sexy male eye candy, strictly for research purposes, of course.
