“The Writing Process” – a thing I never really give much thought to since writing is such a part of me, but since I was asked to do this thing, I will, to the best of my ability, essplain you a thing.
Many thanks to Tina Adams for volunteering me for this blog tour. 😉 God knows I probably wouldn’t have done it without her. 🙂
So, let’s get to those lovely questions, shall we?
1. What Am I Working On?
Um, well, lots of things, really. I’ve got some zombie hunters who are always clamoring for attention, some vampires who just wanna be loved, and an attention-seeking, chocolate-loving, shape-shifting tortured soul by the name of Emrys who always tries to steal the show.
Other than those, I have a futuristic, dystopian type thing that likes to whisper “I’m still here” when I’m knee-deep in work that takes priority right now. I have to pat it on the head and whisper back, “I know, I know. I just have to work on this right now. I haven’t forgotten you, my broken, beautiful thing, you.“
Hm, what else? Oh! Just recently I’ve decided to do a series of short, fluffy snippets which will be purely indulgent for me. I love reading cute things that don’t really have a plot and just exist to make me smile or cry happy tears ’cause they’re just so cheesy/wonderful/cute/emotional. Yeah. They’ll probably be around a few thousand words at the most and will be available to read first on my website.
That’s what I’m working on, yep.
2. How Does My Work Differ From Others Of Its Genre?
I like to fill my works choc full of humor. I tend to lean more towards things that make you laugh than anything really thought provoking. LOL
Once, I let my mom read a thing I was working on (zombies, if you’re curious) and she laughed so much she almost puked. I gave myself a pat on the back and said, “You did good, Bri.”
3. Why Do I Write What I Do?
Oh, goodness. Now I have to think. LOL This is probably going to be really short, but here goes.
I write the things I do because I like the idea of being able to make people feel. Whether it’s happiness, sadness, anger, or some other emotion, if my writing, my stories, have made you feel something in the emotional spectrum then I feel accomplished. Like I’ve done something to move you.
So that’s the gist of it, I suppose.
4. How Does My Writing Process Work?
Pretty much that.
No, but in all seriousness, I don’t know if I have much of a process to describe. I mean, aside from having an idea, fleshing said idea out, getting all my pertinent information down and then putting it on paper, I don’t have a ‘process’. I just listen to the voices in my head and write.
And this is where I toss the ball in someone else’s corner and hope I don’t hit anyone in the face. 🙂 I’m going to throw this one at Jilly Brown, author of the wonderful mystery/thriller/suspense novel Killervision.
Jilly, babe, take it away!
Until next post,
