While I had the idea of what the book would be about and even how I wanted it to open, sitting down and preparing to write 85K to 90K words was daunting. Thanks to the NANOWRIMO experience, I am a PLOTTER. I found a great chapter by chapter worksheet, which I will always use to start any novel. But even with that completed, I had trouble starting Must Have Faith. Music is a big part of my process. I wrote screenplays before I wrote novels, so I always see my novels as movies with a soundtrack. So to get started with Must Have Faith, I sat on my bed with my laptop and my iPod and listened to the songs that I felt created the background. Once I got going, the story unfolded easily. I completed the first draft in 57 days. (less)

The operative word there... you stay home... out of sight. LOL. Now, for me the best part of being a writer is creating worlds, characters, situations, and dialogue that start in my head and them end up on paper. And now thanks to this opportunity will be read by others to hopefully enjoy.(less)
