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…

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. Sometimes, I’ll jot a couple pages of notes, other times, I’ll fill half a notebook of chapter/scenes to do. No matter what, though, I always know the ending…

February Blues

This month started with such promise ….   Until I became a flu-ridden, wheezing, clammy mouth breather.   Welcome to the wonders of Winter, where your children are walking petri dishes and life likes to taken sudden unexpected pivots into waiting ditches. I’ve spent the last solid week and a half laid under hard, first…
