I think it's an imperative part of the writing process to see how others perceive your ideas. Something might sound great in your head, but in reality it might not work. Talking it out can also lead to serendipitous results. I can't tell you how many times I spoke with my husband about one minor detail in my book and it led me to develop an even bigger idea or concept, or made me realize a significant detail I needed to change. There is a fine line though of not letting others opinions influence you too much. Maintaining your own voice and unique ideas is key. (less)

These are certainly some words to live by and I am constantly fine-tuning my process and figuring out what works best for me. Inspiration knows no schedule. Sometimes I write all day on a Saturday or for five minutes during a week day. Sometimes nothing for a week or more. When I'm inspired, I just jump in and see what happens. (less)

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm over halfway done writing my next book - Summoner of Sleep. Expect plenty of horror and magical realism. I can't wait to share it with you! 😀
