I don't believe in writer's block. There are days I struggle with writing. Many days, actually. But I've learned that if I just do the work set out in front of me, the rest will come. I love the analogy about 'writing being like a muscle.' I have to write every single day to find my flow. The more I write, the better the flow. If I stop, the muscle weakens and becomes a limp noodle. So, I write every single day whether I'm working on my blog, my journal or the next installment of the Black Blood Chronicles.(less)

I get to take these perfectly shaped characters and give them flaws, dilemmas, quirks, and feelings. I watch how they push their way through the pages and come alive. If he/she don't come alive, I'll kill the character. And I know how sick this sounds, but I get to control how they act, what they say and how the story ends. I'm a sucker for happy endings, but sometimes, happy endings aren't always in the cards.(less)

Running.

I’ve done a lot of self-reflection in the last fourteen hours.Here’s what I’ve learned:Crying isn’t something I do well. In fact, I hate it. But, I’ve learned when I cry, something inside me changes, evolves. I’ve learned crying is a good thing.Why do we run from movies, books, that we know will tap into our emotions?A Dog’s Purpose, Beaches (remember that one?), Beautiful Boy, Saving Beck, The...

All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover

I crack open my cookie and slip the fortune out of it. “If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”
Originally, this book was going to be called, “All Your Perfections.” There were many variations of this line in the beginning, but once I began writing the scene this quote appeared in, I changed “Perfections” to “Perfects.” I had received a fortune cookie earlier that day and a word was grammatically incorrect, so I pulled from that experience as I was writing the scene. Sometimes small things in my life end up in my books. I think that’s inevitable with any book an author writes. It’s hard not to find inspiration in everyday things, no matter how small or insignificant. Little did I know ...more
