31 Days of Author Madness: Shaun Allan

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I sit and I stare at the screen and I look at the TV and I realise an hour has gone by and I stare at the screen some more and I write some words and then delete them and think I’ve been writing for an hour,…

31 Days of Author Madness: Stacey L. Polishook

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I have a writing process that is a bit unique. I tend to be inspired by a question or a character. I actually write scenes out of order and discover the story through writing these scenes. As I come to know my cast of characters and their…

31 Days of Author Madness: M. Greenhill

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? My writing process is very simple. I tend to vomit out my first draft; cringe at the mess, then start to fix it through the editing process. I am a panster writer which makes things a little interesting in that my characters tend to write the story…

31 Days of Author Madness: R. K. Close

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I’m a new-ish writer, so I’m still developing a style. It’s was my habit to just puke my ideas down and then “boom” I’ve got a story. Worked like a charm for book one. Book two was a bit more difficult because I suddenly had parameters from…

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…

31 Days of Author Madness: Trinity Hanrahan

The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? Well, it generally starts with an inspiration from a song, show, movie or picture. Then I plot, plot, plot, outline, research, plot, outline, research, tag all info. At that point, I then procrastinate, writer’s block and occasionally write for the next year or so. Then, when my…
