My Writing Process – Blog TourHello! I was tagged by the lovely and talented, Theresa Paolo. Thanks, Theresa!
Theresa is a YA and NA author who doesn't want to admit she's no longer a teen. Repped by Brittany Booker. Her NA novel, (NEVER)AGAIN, came out last fall from Berkley (Penguin.) She's currently working on the sequel, (Once) Again.
Before I answer Theresa's questions, I also want to thank everyone who voted on my cover for DON'T FALL! The winner will be revealed soon!
1) What am I working on?
Right now I'm working on a YA about two cousins who end up stuck together. They currently aren't sure they want to trust each other, but things should be looking up soon. ;)
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I guess the thing that makes my writing unique is the same thing that makes everyone's writing unique. My voice and my experiences. All our works are touched by our own personal view of the world.
3) Why do I write what I do?
Because it's fun! I think teens aren't as jaded as some adults. Even when things get dark in YA, they're usually left off with hope in the end. Plus it's just such an exciting time in a person's life.
4) How does your writing process work?
Well, I have four little kids so I write when I can. Sometimes that's for a half an hour in the afternoon while Wallykazzam is on, sometimes it's at night when they're all sleeping. And I have to admit, it's not always every day. The next step is reading it over myself and making sure I don't hate it, then I send it off of my awesome cps. :)
I'll be passing this along to Jenny S. Morris and Susan Bishop Crispell. Two super awesome writers!
Jenny is a YA Author repped by Jamie Drowley of Inklings Literary Agency. Her YA novel, Road to Somewhere, was just released this month!
Susan writes magical realism (adult and YA). Her debut novel, Love and Cupcakes, released in Jan 2014 from Swoon Romance.
