I know, I know the same ol’ questions come around during these blog hops, but if you really do want to get to know someone, really read them...each time...bet cha’ there is a new work in progress, release date or a change in the latitude and longitude of the what or how they write.
What I am working on?
I am always working on something. Lately it seems that I am working on a circular path, as I keep wandering in circles trying to get to the next step in a new children’s book concept. Well, the concept is not new, I mean we were all afraid to go to school at one time or another. However, the chicks in this book...well, let’s just say that they are afraid of Brooding School.(get it?) I am done with my part...just waiting on those elusive illustrations...I hope you will be as excited as me to get a peek at them.
How does my work differ from others?
That is an easy question to answer. I am a writing genius. Was just seeing if you were paying attention or not. If you went by sales, my work differs in that well, let’s just say a marketing plan might not be a bad idea. However, I guess I would have to say no major differences, just a matter of style...simplicity and sweetness is what I do. I have to assume that every writer of children’s books are writing with a passion for kids. I know that when I put pen to paper, or fingers to a keyboard, that what I am writing has been in a passionate vault waiting for something special to trigger the lock and let the words flow.
Why do I write?
The pure joy of it. There are millions upon millions of words and thoughts that bang around in my brain. If you looked in there and could actually see the workings, it may just frighten even the sturdiest of folk. But, man, once it gets to a point where not one more synapse will fire, my pen starts working. I don’t know, it just feels good to write.
What is my writing process?
My process usually involves hearing a story, or wondering about something for a long time, then jotting it all down. I come up with characters in my mind about who solves what or does what in the story. A spark will ignite something I have had in my mind for a while, and a story will unfold.
