I’ve been taggeded: “My Writing Process” Blog Tour

Thank’s to JD Faulkner for dragging me along into this!

Alright, questions to answer:

  1. What am I working on?
  2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
  3. Why do I write what I do?
  4. How does your writing process work?

Let’s go.

1. What am I working on?

Everything. I just finished writing the first chapter of a new novel, I’m working on re-writing/editing three novels and there’s always my prompt challenge and social networking on top of that. (And, you know, “real” work.) Here are some ridiculous, short blurbs:

Summer Thunder:
Desert fantasy with many dragons, a floating city and water magic. Tagline: “She’s on the run for a crime punishable by death: killing a dragon.”

A fantasy with a touch of steampunk, soul zombies, and Bob the dragon.

Little Cub:
High fantasy meets urban fantasy, in an African-ispired continent controlled by a peoples with a horrifying ability. Ariava is one of the last of her people, desperately trying to carve out a life for the orphans she’s taken under her wing – until the rebellion hunts her down for their own purposes.

Dystopic India. Daman’s an ass. Sara’s the poor soul that gets caught in his shit storm. All because of a damned sandwich. (Wanna stalk the still WIP blog?) To be written in the same process of Summer Thunder; an interactive novel.

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Okay, I write weird stuff. Really weird stuff. A majority of it is fantasy, but I love to mash and bend and break the norms and build some pretty different stories. I’m not saying this to be a special snowflake; a large reason of why I’m rejected for things it’s because my work is too different. (At least it’s not for being badly written, I would have drowned in ice cream by now. With this, I’m only half-drowned.)

3. Why do I Write what I do?

Because DRAGONS.

I wish I could say it’s more complicated, but not really. I was a gamer before I was a reader, and the Spyro games got me addicted. If there was a dragon on it, I’d probably pick it up. So, though I wanted to be a zoologist or a veterinarian, fantasy just kinda because my thing.

4. How does your writing process work?

HAHAHA, process, you’re silly. I literally work with no rules, and no regulations. I’ve tried keeping a schedule, daily word counts, outlining, and nothing works. I work my best under a deadline, but self-pressure just kills me. So I have a hell of a to-do list, and I get a couple things done every day. My novels have different processes for each, too – I’m probably a little too fluid in my writing.

Alrighty, that’s enough about me, what about you? I’m going to tag a few people below, but leave a comment about your own style, too!

My victims friends that I’m passing the torch along to:

Alaska Penn
Alaska Penn, more commonly known as Allie, is currently studying art at a small Southern college, but stories are her passion. She has been writing stories since the third grade, but has been telling them since she was old enough to talk. Chocolate milk and cats hold a special place in her heart. She has written several novels, and her current project is a YA fantasy.

Relic and Silver
Relic and Silver, despite sharing the same fictional universes, live on opposite sides of the country. Silver is a Bone Queen-in-training, collecting bones from roadkill when not volunteering at a state park’s aviary. Meanwhile, Relic spends her days attempt to survive in the Australia of the United States—the Mojave Desert— when she’s not knee-deep in arts and crafts or brainstorming, that is. They share a mutual love for video games, fiction, fantasy and Irish Setters. They’re currently working on two separate New Adult fantasy series.

Kaitlyn Noble
Kaitlyn Noble is the currently unpublished author of half a dozen books. Until the day she completes a project to her satisfaction, her day job is a sub for elementary students, whose imagination is refreshing. Other hobbies and interests include art, music, fangirling over characters and storylines, and making a fool of herself in general.

Bacon, out.
