Last week Rhenna Morgan tagged me for this blog hop. I haven’t done one in a while, so here we go!
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
The Wishful series plays to my strengths. It is a hard-core love song to the Deep South, showcasing all the best parts of my home state of Mississippi. Anybody who loves small town romance should enjoy this series.
Why do I write what I do?
I actually write a lot of things. Contemporary romance is where my present focus is because I needed a change–and because those characters are the ones keeping me up at night. But I haven’t forgotten my paranormal roots and hope to start on a new Mirus novel once I get this one off my plate. And I’ve got the nice palette cleansers of my Meet Cute Romances. (PSST! You can get my most recent Meet Cute, Once Upon An Heirloom for FREE this week!)
How does my writing process work?
I’m constantly plotting multiple projects. My brain doesn’t do well focused on a single thing for long. I have a full toolkit of plot details that I gradually fill out as things come to me. And when I’m ready, I dive in, typically sticking to only drafting one thing at a time. And while I do outline the entire book before I start, invariably things change once I get into the story itself, so I don’t sweat it. I just make the changes and trace the ripples out to adjust the outline from there. I try to write at least something every day. It keeps my head in the story and means I make steady progress.
Tag, you’re it.
I’m tagging Lauren Garafalo, Suzan Butler, and Julie Glover for this blog hop. Next Monday, you’ll answer these questions on your own blog and tag 3 more writers! Go!
I’m kinda lookin’ forward to you sliding back to the paranormal world, but you never disappoint in contemporary either, so I’ll be patient. 🙂
I’ve learned I don’t do well forcing stuff. But if I’m patient, they eventually start talking to me again–usually with surprising insights.
Thanks! I always enjoying hearing how other writers work. I get some great tips that way. Appreciate the tag! Best wishes with the books.
