31 Days of Author Madness: J. M. Butler

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? My writing process varies a lot, but at a minimum it involves putting words into some sort of document. Sometimes I act out scenes before I draft them, other times I brew a nice cup of tea and curl up with a book that I love. Other…

31 Days of Author Madness: Angela B.M. Guajardo

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? Oh, goodness. Brainstorm, write notes in tiny, scratchy handwriting that grows progressively smaller as ideas pop up faster and faster. Then there’s a point where I have to yell at one cat or another to stop chewing on the spiral binding, or stop trying to eat my…

31 Days of Author Madness: Leigh W. Stuart

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? My process is currently up in the air, but I’ve always flirted with some form or other of outlining.

Fav Reads of 2017

Somehow I read about 53 books this year. I know, shocker. Actually, this is about average for me. I do heavy reading in spurts, and usually I read to escape/ rest my brain. I also reread a lot, either because my sieve like memory forgets things or because I loved the story so much I…

2018 Writing Plans: How we gonna torture ourselves this year?

The Year is Ending 2017 is rapidly winding down. (Good riddance. Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.) In the spirit of the approaching New Year, it is time to set impossibly lofty writing goals for myself that I can weep over when next December rolls around. This year, I totally…
