Interview with Marci Wilcox

Are you a plotter of a seat of your pants writer?
I consider myself a plotter, but I never stick to my original plan. Writing is discovery. Once you start writing the story, the plot changes, the characters begin to breathe and add dimension, and you find that something you plotted originally no longer works. The plot outline I create gives me a roadmap, but the journey itself is always unique.
Describe your desk
It's a big desk with a cat bed on one corner. I have five cats. I love when one of them decides to nap in the cat bed while I'm writing. For some reason, that sleeping cat helps me get into a groove where I'm completely immersed in my story. I suppose it's because I see that they can shut out the outside world and so can I.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I'm a nerd. I love superhero comic books. I wanted to write a sex story with superheroes.There's something about their form fitting outfits and perchance to suffer at the hands of twisted super villains that made me think that superheroes have to be into BDSM. So that's how I came up with the idea for "Super Submissive."
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Just about everything connected to writing. I love seeing words become paragraphs and paragraphs become chapters and chapters become a book. I love creating characters. I love coming up with plots. I love when a story I'm working on consumes me and it's all I can think about.
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't have many fans at this time. I'm still new at this. But there are a few people out there who have made it clear to me that they want to read whatever I write. They aren't members of my family or close friends. I cherish them. It reminds me that I'm on to something here if I just keep working at it.
What are you working on next?
I've never written a gay romance, but I have an idea for one and I'm looking forward to working on it. The story has a sword and sorcery fantasy setting. I'm thinking sweaty men in loincloths.
