I remember my first attempt at a novel. I was in Grade 9 and I was determined to write a book. Incorporating some of my friends, I would change their names, but use some of their own characteristics to describe them. They would try to guess who was who. It was fun! If I was angry with them or any reason, I would write their character out of the book.
What is your writing process?
It seems to differ from project to project. Sentences or ideas will run through my mind and I'll write until my mind is clear. Until it starts to pull me in again. I once read an author's bio where she said she wrote one thousand words daily no matter what. I am going to try that for my next book.
A short book describing the events that lead a woman to the realization that she is able to connect with those who have passed on. In effect, she talks to the dead. As well, the author answers some of the more common life and death questions many of us have.
