Welcome! I'll be posting writing prompts, ideas about the craft of writing, and other writing treats here. Please check back often!
I love helping other writers discover their writing process. Over the years, I've used many tools and techniques to get to where I am today in understanding my writing process.
I am somewhere between a planner and an organic writer. I can start writing with an idea of a situation, character, or setting. I discover the story world as I write. But when I get near the end of Act I or into the beginning of Act II, I find that I feel stuck. That's when I do a bit of high level pre-planning for several scenes or chapters. Doing this, I can move forward with my story.
For revision, I like do a revision plan, which includes a checklist of things to cover, This helps me stay focused during this part of my writing process.
What's your writing process like?
Feel free to describe it in as much detail as you would like.
