About My Writing Process
What am I working on right now?
How does my work differ from others of the genre?
Why do I write what I do?
What is my writing process?
I don’t know if you can call what I have a process, but I do have some things I’ve started doing to help. For years I’ve loved writing – I have notebooks full of crappy poems and one-page-short-stories from my high-school years, and I started blogging when I was 17-years-old. But for some reason, I was never able to sit myself down and say “now write,” and come up with someone “good” and cohesive.
Blogging has really helped with that, and I’ve gotten to a point where all of my posts are written at night, around 5-10 p.m. I’ve tried to get my blog onto a schedule, which means that I want my posts up and ready to read by 7 a.m. every day; so the night before, I know I need to write something. And somehow, that’s worked.
But a lot of that is planning, and ideas. I carry a small notebook around with me, and whenever I think of something worth writing, I put it in the notebook. I also keep a running list of ideas in my Evernote on my computer, so that when it’s time to write a post, I have plenty of ideas.
And finally, my “process” involves a lot of procrastination (which you could guess from the fact that all posts are written the night before they go onto my blog). I’ll sit down, pick out a photo and get that ready and into the post, but then it’s fair game for a million other things: watching Pretty Little Liars, getting a snack, scrolling through Tumblr and Twitter…You name it, and I’ll do it all before writing a single word of a post.
