The insanely talented Laila Blake tagged me for the Writing Process Meme (yes, capitals), and I will happily oblige.
1) What am I working on?
French Kissing Episode Four. When I’m finished with this one I’m going on holiday though, I need a break. 😉
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I’m not sure it differs, but I have pondered this question quite a bit and I think, in a nutshell, that what I write is lesbian enough (because how can it not be? ;-)) to appeal to lesbians while also being mainstream enough to attract a broader audience. Plus, most lesbian fiction is not nearly as explicit as mine.
3) Why do I write what I do?
Because I love lesbian erotica and romance probably more than anything else in the world. 😉 In a world where we are largely underrepresented in all media, my heart always skips a beat when I encounter a strong, out and proud, sexy lesbian character going about her every day business. Because I can’t get enough of characters like that, I just create more and more and more…
4) How does my writing process work?
I used to be such a big pantser, but now that I’m knee-deep into a serial, I have no choice but to plot. I’m beginning to think that I’m slowly turning from the world’s biggest pantser into a full-on plotter. These days, my wife and I actually have ‘meetings’ in which we discuss plot points and map out the various characters’ paths. I write every weekday morning from 9 a.m. until noon (three 45 minute sessions), then e-mail what I wrote to the wife so we can talk that day’s word count (between 2000 and 2500 words, for those of you equally obsessed) over during lunch. I hardly ever work on different stories at once, except when I have a looming deadline (but I make sure I don’t have too many of those.) My brain can only handle so much drama at a time.
I’m tagging my idol Cheyenne Blue because I want to know how she does it… 😉
