The first is being able to watch a story unfold as I type and be just as surprised as the reader will be! And, yes, that does happen. All I do is plot the main story line, after that the story just develops on its own. I know where everything will lead and what will happen at the end...how the story gets there is always a mystery.

Another wonderful thing about being a writer is that I can do it from anywhere. I don't have to be in my office at home...I can writer from a coffee shop, while on vacation...pretty much anywhere.(less)

Don't get discouraged and give up when things don't work out the way you planned...they rarely do. Keep at it. The more you write, the better your writing gets.(less)

Reading Order Explained:
