I’m from New Orleans, that’s N’awlins for those of you who speak the language. I grew up in the Riverbend, or Carrollton, for the old timers, but was a Quarter rat from the age of 11, taking 3 buses to go to art class on Burgundy Street at the Cabrini Doll Museum and NORD center. I attended University of New Orleans and have a BA in Fine Art. My mother worked at Tulane University, six blocks from our house and when we were kids my brother and I parked cars in our driveway for the Saints games at Tulane Stadium. We could get six cars down the drive, two on the front lawn, and two on the street and we only charged $2 a car. We made enough to b...more

Mostly by not writing unless I have something in my head to write. See, no block! But when I do write, it's usually a chapter in about 1-2 hours.

Also, I give my self permission not to write - when I'm ill, swamped with family or work issues. It's okay not to write. Forcing the writing is painful and usually results in not your best work.

Sometimes you need to refill the well. Read. Relax. Let your mind start thinking about a scene or a character or a new project. (less)
Lynn Lorenz Writing The End.

Really, I love all the parts of it - writing, editing, brainstorming.

The only thing I hate is promoting. I'd rather be writing.

Thank you so much to the wonderful Lynn for hosting me and my polar bear today!

Yes, that’s right. I brought a polar bear shifter with me. His name is Soren Snow and he is the hero of my new paranormal romance Predator’s Serenade, Gemini Island Shifters Book 2. Now, Soren is a special kind of guy. Aside from being a shape shifter, this sexy man is also a rock star drummer, and adored all over t... Read more of this blog post »

Lynn Lorenz Really? Fans? I have fans? Who knew??? I'm totally clueless. Thanks for letting me know, Missy.

It's not hard to do. Go to one of your books and click on your name, then down at the bottom of that page is a link to "claim" that author account. They'll then merge them together so you can see all your book stats and have more control over that profile. And you've got a bunch of fans over there too! :)

Missy Welsh Hi, Lynn! Thanks for accepting my friend request.

Hey, how come you're not in here under your author profile?

message 6: by Lynn

Lynn Lorenz No problem!
I need to seriously update my book lists - but don't have the time right now with edits and writing.


message 4: by Lynn

Lynn Lorenz Hi, Bradley. It's going okay. Started the story - and so far I'm at 1K. Should have the first chapter done this a.m.
How're you? I see you're into scifi.
So's my DH - he's read about EVERYTHING in print...the house is stuffed with paperbacks. LOL!

Bradley I hope you are having a good day! =)

message 2: by Lynn

Lynn Lorenz I know what you mean. I make myself deals...I get to read a book after I finish edits, or the next two chapters...or turn it in on time. But with the pace I'm going at, there's never much time to read just for fun.
Still, I'm not complaining. It's good to be busy.
