My Writing Process Blog Hop

Hello, all!!! I’ve been tagged in this blog hop by the lovely Miss Natalie Cannon we all love so much. I’m continuing a chain of authors answering the same questions about our work.

I’m also doing this on my phone, so fingers crossed.

1) What am I working on?


No, but really I’ve been focusing a lot on my short stories, from necessity. I do them for class, for one thing. I’ve got a couple of murder mysteries I’m bouncing around for picking up when I’m home again.

2) How does my work differ from other works of it’s genre?

Hmm… Well I specialize in wrenching hearts and crushing souls. I would say that basically speaks for itself.

3) Why do I write what I do?

There are a lot of people suffering unfairly in this world. I try to give them a voice in a way people can’t comfortably ignore.

4) How does my writing process work?

Well, I’ve done a blog post on this before, so I’ll paraphrase here. I get an idea, I figure out its scope and take down any notes I need. I add it to my docket. I do any planning required for longer works (character profiles, outlines, etc). I then write them. Lately I’ve even been reading my own drafts and doing a round of edits before sending it off.

I then have other people read it and respond. Natalie always is one of those people, and the others vary depending on the piece and expertise. I put it through edits until nobody has any more to say about it. And then I push for publication.

That was lovely fun!!! I’ll be tagging the Invisible Ninja Cat and charging her to get a response up next Saturday!
