31 Days of Author Madness: Sally Mason

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I’m a panster by heart. The only thing I’m planning is a couple of major plot points and the ending. The last few paragraphs are written pretty early on so I can keep track of the finish line. The rest is write as a I go. 2.…

31 Days of Author Madness: Kimberly Vale

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? Before I begin writing, I share my ideas with my two closest writing friends, we squeal together, then I get started. My writing process is a LOT of back and forth. I tend to revise while I draft, going back to a previous chapter and revising it…

31 Days of Author Madness: Owain Glyn

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I tend to get the germ of an idea. I handwrite my thoughts and put it to one side for a few days. I then reread, if it continues to make sense I will develop it. I do not put it onto publish until I am completely…

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? Well, it generally starts with an inspiration from a song, show, movie or picture.

31 Days of Author Madness: Lavinia Leigh

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I like to live with a story before I actually start writing it, slowly getting to know the characters. From there, I try to write out the rough draft without worrying too much about anything other than getting the words down. It’s the editing after when I…

31 Days of Author Madness: Robyn Marie

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? Unruly, haha. Mostly it’s about inception. I like to think of an idea and then sit on it for awhile, waiting. Yes, procrastination is my middle name, but in this case, it’s helpful. As I stew, I like to watch movies/TV, read non-fiction books, peruse the internet,…
