Elysia Strife is a self-published author of science fiction fantasy and romance novels.

Adopted by two educators, Strife developed a deep love for learning new things. In 2012, she graduated from Oregon State University with two Bachelor’s Degrees in Public Health and Human Sciences: Interior Design and Exercise Sport Science. Her past wears fatigues, suits, and fitness gear, sprinkled with mascara and lace.

"I like to question everything, figure out how things work, and do tasks myself. Experiencing new things is fun but also helps with writing raw and genuine stories. And I'm always trying to push my comfort zones."

Strife likes the rumble of her project car's 350-ci V8. She enjoys the rush of snowboarding and riding ATVs on the dunes. Bu

I'd have to pick the few deja vu dreams that occasionally equate to clairvoyance. I've always wondered if it was some level of repressed subconscious that just finished a puzzle my conscious mind hadn't solved yet. I'd love to study brain chemistry, human networking, and the effects of electrotherapy a little more in depth. Maybe it could make a fun sci-fi/cyberpunk novel with a few tech and socioeconomic twists.(less)

Then I distract myself with something else for a few hours, a couple of days while I mull it over. Exercise helps reduce stress. Sometimes that's enough. Other times I need to work on another book or go explore the world, depending on how stuck I am. New experiences can give your aching brain muscle a rest. And then there's sleep. Just make sure you keep a journal beside you in case you have a eureka moment in the middle of the night. Don't forget a pencil. That's the worst.
When you return and see those questions you wrote down, it makes it easier to remember where you left off, and kick start the writing process again.(less)
