I hope that you are all doing well and staying healthy. I know that this spring looks a little different than we all imagined just a couple months ago. Today I wanted to check in on my Quarter One goals to let you know how I did and talk about my goals for Quarter Two.
Today I wanted to begin a series diving into my planning process. As with my revision series, I do things my own individual way. I’ve always been fascinated by other authors’ planning processes so I wanted to share my own in case something I do could be helpful for another writer.
We’re diving back into a behind-the-scenes peek at my revision process. First things first, my initial revision process is very different from those I’ve seen of other authors. This is what works for me, however I highly encourage you to look up Susan Dennard’s revision series because she does an excellent job breaking down how she goes about revisions.
Today I wanted to dive into the drafting aspect of writing novels. If you are a part of the writing community, you may have noticed that there has been some recent backlash about the concept of fast drafting. I was a little taken aback when the conversation first started as I believe that every writer’s process is unique and no single process is “superior.” I think for the most part we all agree with that.
Today I wanted to dive into my writing process a little bit. I have often enjoyed when other authors reveal bits about their writing process so I thought I’d share a bit about mine. Since I am in the midst of the initial round of revisions for Autumn Sunrise, that’s the part of the process I’ll be documenting over the next month or so.
Today I wanted to talk about one of the struggles that many writers deal with, which is finding time to write when you have a lot going on in your life.
Today I wanted to discuss one of the struggles that many authors deal with, which is staying faithful to your current work when new stories enter your consciousness. It’s often hard, especially in the midst of a tough round of revisions or what feels like an endless cycle of edits to stay faithful to your current project.
In today’s post, I wanted to discuss my writing goals for the first quarter of this year.
Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite writing tools. Every single person is different and we all prefer different tools to write with. Throughout my life, my favorite tools have changed as my writing process has changed.
Today I wanted to share a little bit about pens names and why I chose to use one. As some of you may know, I have chosen to write my thriller and horror novels under a pen name rather than under my personal legal name.
