My Method

I don’t know if any of you are curious, but I’m curious to know other author’s writing processes.  Early on in my writing career I had no rhyme or reason to what I wrote, I would simply sit and write. I’ve learned now that I need to organize my thoughts a little better to help the flow of the story. Now I start with a general idea, and then I write out the characters as they appear in my mind. Once I have a good visual of the character I make a point of describing them: eye color, hair color and texture, skin tone etc… Oh yea… at some point I give a general outline of the story that I never stick to but it DOES help me to have something to go by. I have discovered a lot less roadblocks and those “what color are his eyes again” moments.

As for the writing itself, I was simply writing random things here and there. Sometimes on the computer, sometimes on a slip of paper…such as on the back of a voided check lol. I have since simplified my method by carrying a notebook around 24/7. It’s much easier for me to write in my notebook, and then transfer it to my computer. After all that is complete I print out the finished manuscript and do my first round of edits by hand and then I go back and do it electronically. It sounds more complicated than it really is lol. HAPPY READING AND HAPPY WRITING!!!!
