Marianne Maguire My favourite part of being a writer is, being able to transport myself to another world. When I write, the vision is so clear in my head that the story feels like it is happening around me. I dream about it, and not just in my sleep, it becomes an obsession until I get it all out on paper. That is how I truly know I love what I do!
Marianne Maguire I honestly don't think we writers get blocked, so to speak, I think of it as our characters are mad at us and won't speak to us for a few days. In that case, I tend to surf the internet looking for something that will trigger a conversation to start in my head. It eventually does but somedays are harder than others. My own self doubt and confidence will play a part from time to time and that is harder to deal with.
Marianne Maguire I find inspiration in everything I do, from concerts to clean out my koi pond, I believe there is a story in everything we do. Though, if you do get a hint of something, word of advise, write it down or that spicy little morsel could flicker away in a heart beat.
Marianne Maguire Write, every stinking day! Keep writing and reading and write some more. Even if you feel stuck, or not sure where to start or go, put down one word, then another until you have a sentence, paragraph, page, chapter. It is not easy but nothing worth it ever is, you can do it!
Marianne Maguire I have two projects I am currently working on, one is a secret for now and the other is book 2 of the Legacy Series.
Marianne Maguire Born came from my years spend in the hospitality industry and my love of the midnight creatures.
