Writing Process

Yay!  I love blog hops!  And today’s is on a great subject – your writing process!
First off, let me say that at the end of the blog, we’re supposed to tag three writers to hop along to their blogs.  However, I’m going to break the mould here because I’d like you all to put your blog link in the comments, so everyone can visit your site.  If you want to fill out the answers to your writing process too, then all the better!

Okay, the questions ask about your current project.  So I’ve chosen my top secret WIP.  🙂  Hope you enjoy…

1. What are you working on right now?
I’m thrilled to be working on a mash-up piece.  If you’ve seen the little counter bar at the top right handside of my blog, you’ll have deduced it’s a Gothic Western.  It’s creepy, cowboy-ish, and full of bones, mysteries, and a girl who is definitely not what she seems.

2. How does it differ from other works in its genre?
Good question!  I think it’s different because it focuses on a genre that’s been out of vogue for a while (Western) and combines it with a creeptastic genre that a lot of people like (Gothic).  The idea is to spit-shine those spurs and modernise a classic old genre.

3. Why do you write what you do?
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved the odd, bizarre and unusual, so that tends to reflect into my writing.  There’s something fascinating about the everyday normal being turned on its head.  I also love how the mind works, especially the darker aspects of human nature.  I hope that doesn’t say too much about me!  lol

4. How does your writing process work?
Butt in chair.  That’s it for me.  It doesn’t matter what’s happening around me.  If I want to write, I just get right down to it.  As far as plotting goes, I’m a mix-and-matcher.  I plot a little, I pants a little.  I do what feels right in the moment.  I don’t like to hem myself in to one strict way of doing things.  Instead, I jumble up my schedule, my style, and my process.  It keeps my brain from going stale.
Now, I’ve shared mine, you share yours!  Leave your blog link in the comments so everyone can see what you do too!
Thanks for reading!  🙂
