31 Days of Author Madness: M. Dalto

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I don’t know if I actually have a process when it comes to writing. I don’t outline my stories, and plan very little once an idea comes to me. Only once I start writing a story do I then consider where I want it go- it’s backwards…

31 Days of Author Madness: Michael Estrin

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? It starts with a lot of yelling. This is due to my difficult relationship with computers. Why does anyone think computers will replace / annihilate humans when they can’t even print a simple document without three bajillion hiccups? OK, that’s not the real process, but it is…

31 Days of Author Madness: R.S. Kovach

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I need my laptop, WIP-specific playlist and Pinterest board, and no interruptions to write. I’m usually a planner, so I’ll have at least a general outline, but I’ve been known to “pants” scenes or twists along the way. 2. What inspires you to write? Anything and everything.…

31 Days of Author Madness: Juliet Lyons

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I usually start with an idea and jot it down. Then I attempt a brief outline. Often, ideas will fall apart at this stage. After the outline, I’ll write a few chapters to get a feel for the character’s voice. If it feels right I’ll write a…

31 Days of Author Madness: Elicia Hyder

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? I wish I had a normal “writing process.” I would probably be much more productive! Ha! But we have a large family and life often gets in the way, so I grab my writing time in snippets whenever I can. My most productive writing days are when…

31 Days of Author Madness: Liz Charnes

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I’m still figuring that out. I would like to be an organized writer, but I pretty much write whenever I feel like it and hope that it works with the plot. Sadly, this means I re-write a lot. 2. What inspires you to write? Other books. Stories…

31 Days of Author Madness: Claire Kann

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? The Six C’s: Coffee. Cat (draped across on my feet). Consult my outline. (write a) Chapter. Cry a little. Check Twitter. 2. What inspires you to write? Not to sound cheesy or like I’m all about that Pixar-life, but the spirit of adventure. I love writing characters…

31 Days of Author Madness: Tammy Oja

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? Literally throwing thoughts directly on the screen and then sorting it out later. Sometimes the magic is in the slush and trying to filter ahead of time just stops the whole deal for me. I love excavating through it like panning for flecks of gold. 2. What…

31 Days of Author Madness: Dave Heron

  The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I have to be in the mood. Trying to force myself to write if I am tired (two kids and a full-time job, energy is depleted most of the time), really is a terrible recipe for getting a story where I want it. When I sit…

31 Days of Author Madness: Michelle Jo Quinn

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? I sit at the desk and hope for the best. 2. What inspires you to write? Everything and anything. You’ll never know what will spark the mind. 3. Writing is considered a dream job by many, but what if you were granted the opportunity for a true,…
