Jenny Rose

Biography

Jenny Rose is a young writer earning her Creative Writing for Entertainment degree from Full Sail University. She is the co-founder and head writer of the Draiky and Mayflower Adventure Studios, a self-published IP creation company that works to deliver exciting and adventurous stories through comics and graphic novels, animation, video-games and traditional literature. She is also a seasoned editor, having worked on nearly twenty stories with almost as many writers in her five years practicing the craft. In addition, she is an active fan fiction writer, and competes regularly in character-driven short story competitions on DeviantArt.

Her educational history also includes three years of studying video-game design across three different universities (Drexel, DeVry, and her current alma mater, Full Sail). This background allows her to create rich and developed worlds that translate easily across a multitude of media types and platforms.

When she isn’t writing, Jenny can frequently be found around a game table. She is an avid video-gamer and regularly engages in tabletop role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, where she is not only a player, but a two-time dungeon master and co-writer of her soon-to-be-published adventure module, Chronicles of the Gypsy Bard.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
What AREN'T I working on next? I constantly have all sorts of projects on the go - I'm writing and publishing new fan fictions, working on tabletop campaigns (when I'm not playing them for myself!), writing up new scripts for The Unseen, world-building for Black Sunlight, competing on DeviantArt (and finding new competitions when there's a lull in my schedule!), working on some of my independent projects for school like H4CKERS... I'm a whirlwind of activity. I get bored and unfocused when I have too few projects to work on. So what am I working on next? Same thing I'm always working on - everything!
What is your writing process?
#1. Find your inspiration. Watch that one episode of that show again. Reread that chapter in that book you really like. Replay that video game you're totally not ripping off, or at least find that section and those cut-scenes on YouTube by that Let's Player who did that great series that one time. Find the thing that gets your creative juices flowing and go indulge before you start.

#2. Get comfy. Find your favorite spot - your favorite couch, by your favorite window, at your favorite park... I do most of my writing in bed, honestly. Then get everything you need: drink, snack, put on your moodiest writing music, put on an extra-comfy shirt if you have to. Find your center. You'll be here for the next few hours at least, so do what you have to do to zone out.

#3. WRITE. It could be the worst starting line you've ever written. It doesn't matter. All that matters is that you START. Start in the middle if you have to. Start at the end if you have to. Start with that one scene you REALLY want to write even though your inner editor knows it'll just be cut later because it serves no purpose other than looking really cool. IT DOESN'T MATTER. The only thing that matters is that you're writing. Once you get over that hurdle of "ugh, where do I start?", you'll hit your workflow, and the rest will only get easier from there.
