I find that when I’m working on a story, I get a snag trying to figure out where a scene is going. If I can’t figure it out right away, I’ll start writing random words, or start a new story and give my mind a chance to try and unravel the knot. I think this is why I have so many unfinished ones. 🙂
This question I’m sure comes up a lot for people to ask authors, and authors to answer. “How did you write your book?” I know with some authors, everything is sketched out beforehand, then elaborated and cleaned up as it is written. Others, like me, tend to just start writing and the story goes where it will. Both work. Just because you can’t write like your favorite author should tell you something. You’re not that person. Write to tell a story your way. It takes time and practice. It’s worth it in the end.
I’ve found all the effort behind the scenes to be a real education. The publishers asked, and helped me get these sites set up in Google+, Twitter, Facebook, and here. The idea is to introduce myself, quirks and all, to people, and get you all curious about the crazy person behind the screen. 😉 Seriously though, publishing a book is a lot of work for all involved. This is just one part, trying to create interest. I freely admit to not being the best or most experienced poster. So this is education in itself, which is exciting and frustrating for me. I’m a very shy person in real life so getting me on something like this is akin to walking nude in public. Anyways, to those who read this, thanks for sharing a bit of your day. 🙂
