I share my process of writing a novel. Maybe you’ll find a bit of magic in here to help with your process? It can be arduous process, so I hope to help.
Someone finally explained how my brain worked when it comes to writing. I’m not a series writer. I incorporate ‘Easter Eggs’.
All of my main characters centre around women overcoming seemingly insurmountable challenges as they reveal who they are and what they’re made of. While my storylines may be heavy, they reflect real life.
My writing journey has been slightly different to most. I like to think of myself as a bit of a crackpot writer (hence the name of my website), but once I explain this, you may understand why.
A writing instructor once asked me: What influences your writing?
The question threw me. Here is my answer to that question… now I’ve figured it out.
After writing three books, certain topics are emerging in my novels. Some are intentional, but others are born through the writing process. Some you may have noticed, some you may not…
I’ve been writing novels now for over two years and learning about the importance of an outline has been an eye opening experience for me. It’s a lesson I’d like to share with you, plus tips I learned along the way.
I have an embarrassing confession: I wasn’t aware of ‘POV’ as a writer until five years ago. It’s a ‘Writing 101’ technique all authors need to know – and master – before writing a novel. Deep POV? It’s a GAME CHANGER for authors!
It’s NaNoWriMo! 2021 is my third year of participating and since I’ve been asked by a number of people what’s it about, I’m going to write this post as an FAQ and share my experiences so far. So if you’re curious, read on!
No, that’s wrong. Writing a draft is easy. Easy-ish anyway. Thoughts flow like water and the words magically appear on the page. But a solid outline helps.
