The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? Process? Ha. More like chaos and procrastination, fueled by crippling self-doubt. In their essences, I know the stories I want to tell and the characters I want you to get to know, but getting those things down? Chaos. Procrastination. Crippling self-doubt. I do actually plan my stories […]
The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? Brainstorm, vision board, outline, and write! 2. What inspires you to write? I try and grab any of the weird ideas floating in my head. If I can get enough for an outline, then that’s the story I’ll write. 3. Writing is considered a dream job by […]
The Fiver: 1. What is your writing process? I usually come up with an idea and play with it on my mind for several weeks, months even, before I start to plan how the story could evolve. However, once I have an idea, I need to explore it with images and music, and I try […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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? My writing process involves making my surroundings as quiet as possible, no music or distractions from the hubby or kiddos, which is not an easy feat! I prefer being alone with my thoughts and characters so I can better hear what they have to tell me. 2. […]
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. […]
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 […]

She passed late last year. I’ve mourned. But this weekend blindsided me.
