Writing

My Strategies and Strengths

Strategies:

For WBAB I didn’t do any planning for any of the books. I ended up with lots of lovely scenes but no real plot.

So for Edifice, I took a different approach and outlined first. My word count is way lower with this method because I only put in the essentials. But it’s been much easier to go back and add in than to change the whole core of the story like WBAB. So I’ll probably stick to doing a primary outline and adding in after the first draft.

Strengths:

I don’t know. I think I’m good with emotional descriptions. My character isn’t just happy to see someone, her heart blooms at the sight of his desperately missed face. Strengths are tough though. Not a lot of people have read my work so it’s hard to judge.

Writing

Tumblr posts

I’ve been doing a fun event on tumblr that I’m going to share on here too. It’s just about me and about my books in progress. So here’s the first one!

Me. Huh. I write. I also sew and dabble in drawing sometimes.

I’m a stay at home mom with two beautiful daughters.

I have a genetic defect called Fragile X, which threw me into early menopause when I was thirty. That was hard. I’m over it most of the time now, two years later. Other than that there’s nothing too unique about me, I’m pretty ordinary.

I’m normally a pretty private person. But I’m trying to branch out.

One random fact about me is that I’m horrible at winking! I can only wink my right eye and I have to move my whole face up to do it so it ends up looking silly!

I’ve loved writing my whole life, whether through journals or stories. I have two WIPs I’m currently working on and posting about.

Guess that’s it!
