1) What am I working on?
Everything. I’m trying to finish marketing my first book and find the time to get writing again. I’m not sure what I’ll start next, considering I have so many ideas. It’ll probably be my young adult fantasy series that my sister keeps asking for, since those characters seem to pop up in my head most often. I hope to have that, a short story or two, and maybe one of my contemporary ideas done by next summer.
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Other than my writing style I’m not really sure. I think genre is a term for things that are similar in certain ways, and pretty much everything has already been done, so there aren’t too many ways to be different. I hope I can bring a level of plot twisting to my work that leaves even the best readers surprised. I tend to be a really good plot guesser, so I’m rarely surprised.
3) Why do I write what I do?
I write what hits me and won’t go away. I write what I can’t stop thinking about: a plot, or a place, or characters.
4) How does my writing process work?
I’m not sure if it will change since I’ve only written one book, but what it looked like for Harrow was a lot of wine and whining. I knew what I wanted, had it all in my head, but it took time and effort to sit down and type it up. That was the hardest part. I know that going into my next projects, so I’ll be ready to make time for it. It also helped when I wrote everyday. I would get back into writing much faster if I had been writing all week.
