I'm often asked - ah darn it no - I'm never asked about how I write. Well not often. I'm not one of the lucky ones who sit down at a computer and it comes pouring out. My stories rise slowly like hot air balloons and then eventually move forward. I wish I could write faster but I can't. I'm not slow but I so quickly get trawled up in plots and character that I have to backtrack over the first few chapters time after time until I feel happy moving on. So instead of plotting everything, I start off with nothing and then build it up like a tower of blocks, only to take a couple out every now and again and let it fall before I start off once more.
Current WIP - has me excited to write on and I can't until I have some sort of feel for where I'm going and why. For a change, I know what I'm going to be writing in a few chapters time and that's rare. Usually, it happens as I type. This is one is more of an adventure than some of my others. An MM story with the MCs so diametrically opposed, they're going to be fun to bring together.
