The Thought Process
When trying to figure out what I will write next, timing is everything for me. I could be watching a television show or even a movie, and suddenly I get an idea. I never try to copy anyone else's ideas, but turn whatever comes to mind, into something that only my brain could comprehend, then try to form it so that everyone else can figure out what is going on.
Sound's complicated doesn't it? For me, it is quite easy, but putting those ideas into words is the long process for me, hence, my next book is still in the writing process.
My next book is going to be a Paranormal book, which is why I am taking the up-most caution with this one. I want it to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, so-to-speak.
I always found, back in school, writing to be a tedious and pain-staking ordeal, but after graduating, I found it very therapeutic, how funny things can turn out. After writing Poetry, Short Stories, and now working on my first full-length novel, I find myself very relaxed, but sometimes pumped-up after writing for different periods of time.
Overall, trying to figure out what to write, how to write it, and get it down on paper (or the computer) is a process that takes immeasurable time to make it just right. Never give up, is what I always tell myself; the end result will make it all worthwhile.
