I finished my first novel in November of 2011 during Nanowrimo but had the story floating around in my mind since March 2011. I decided to participate in nanowrimo with the hopes of having a finished draft and it worked! The fun part is editing which can sometimes be a daunting task! A sentence can always be manipulated. A paragraph can always be deleted. The hard part is figuring out which ones should stay or go.
I use to write daily when I was in high school. I found joy in poetry and loved singing lyrics I wrote to music but something happened and I stopped writing. Here we are 10 years later...and I am finally writing once again. I have several stories in my heart that are dying to get out. I hope you all find them as entertaining as I do. My characters are as real to me as my friends and family.
My novel is called “After the Woods” it is the first book of a saga. (saga sounds cool!) The plan is to write 3-4 books that continue from After the Woods. I find inspiration in the smallest things. Camping has played a huge part in my stories. It seems each time I go camping I have an epiphany. There is something about a clear mind and the wilderness that sparks my creativity. If I could camp and hike every weekend I would. I love writing to John Williams. While I write, I imagine the words as if they were a movie, helps me picture scenes, body movement and such.
I do not underestimate the power of communication. I love electronics. Harry Potter rocks my world. I secretly wish I were a wizard. I like haikus. I believe George Lucas is the real Jedi Master and think about his writing techniques often. I live in Texas. I enjoy twitter, it is my new addiction. Lets be friends
