Here’s another photo from our family vacation to Maui: it’s Pa’iloa beach at Wai’anapanapa State Park where we ate a picnic lunch on our drive to Hana.
I’m a guest on my friend Ruth Snyder’s site today! I wrote about establishing proper rhythm and pace in a story.
I’m also visiting my friend Jenny Lee Sulpizio today where I talk about why failure is actually a good thing!
It you need some tips on time management, I posted some on the Moms of Faith site, so check them out!
My friend Patti J. Smith invited me to join A Writers World Blog Tour! See her post from last Monday.
What are you working on?
Nothing! I actually decided to take the summer off from writing projects because I’ve been so overwhelmed this past 6 months. I’m not sure what I’ll tackle next. I need to write a couple short stories for Helping Hands Press to follow up on what I’ve already done
. I also hope to get back to work on my Viking series
. More on that later!
How does your work differ from others in its genre? My Lawmen of Clayton County series is different because it has more of a western feel than a prairie story, and it’s in a setting that’s hardly used: The Oregon Territory. My Viking stories, which I hope to start releasing by the end of the year, are different because there are only a couple Christian Viking books out there, so this is a historical time period that’s very unexplored.
Why do you write what you do? God pointed me in this direction about 8 years ago. I’ve always been a romantic at heart, and knowing how God truly meant relationships to be, how He intended for men and women to compliment each other, makes it more exciting! We’re meant to be a representation of our Creator, and when men and women come together with mutual love and respect, He delights in them. I love that. And I love history. So mixing the two just make sense!
How does your writing process work? I typically do a general outline, planning out scenes in my spare time (on the road, in the shower, etc.) Then I try to write each chapter in order, sometimes deviating if I’m really excited by a later scene. It’s always a little different for each book!
