Writer's Process Blog Hop

1) What am I working on?

I am currently preparing a Time Travel based on the 1852 Modoc War of northern California/southern Oregon, and a Vampire Romance for my beta reader. I plan to release both in 2014! The Vampire is now with my beta reader, and at the moment I’m editing the Modoc story.

2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I suppose my work differs from others of its genre because I do not write by the “rules - guidelines” of mass market traditionally published works. I write romantic fantasy as I see it in my mind, not as how “they” see it. I believe I’m doing it right because of all the rave reviews my works receive.

3) Why do I write what I do?
I’ve been told I have a very vivid imagination. I suppose that’s why I write what I do. My imagination can’t be controlled by reality, I guess. LOL!

4) How does my writing process work?
I’m not sure I really Have a “writing process” s defined. Between time spent with my elderly mother and other life responsibilities, my writing happens whenever I have time to stand in front of my computer and write. But I always make sure to write at least 100 words a day. As in the writer’s challenge among each other on two writers loops I’m on; 100x100 (100 words a day for 100 days.) Except I’ve extended it to be a forever type of thing instead of stopping at a certain length of time.
It works for me, so I guess it is my “process.” By doing that for the past 4+ years I’ve seen a contract come to me for my trilogy – CONNECTIONS - and see a bright future for more soon to be released titles!

Post it on your blog and then tag three-four other authors you know.
It will be interesting to see how far it keeps going :)

I love that you try to write at least 100 words a day. Even at 100 words, you are paying attention to your writing daily, so the story is not far from your mind.
