But if I had to pick a few favourite bits, I'd say the act of writing itself and the crafting of words, the feeling when the story turns out the way I'd hoped, and the time when readers finally bring the story to its full life. For me that last bit is crucial because I think of books as interactive, so I see each reader as a co-creator of sorts in whatever world I'm building. That's why hearing from readers and connecting with them is so awesome, too.

Of course, what's also fab about being a writer is being able to have my pets with me while I work. They are absolutely my best muses:)(less)

For me, writing begets more writing. But I do get what I call "writer's bumps"--times when I stall in a story. I see these as gifts because they're a sign something isn't working in a scene, so I figure out why and rewrite. I'm big on signs so this is a good thing:)(less)

description
Was gifted this fab puzzle featuring Nancy Drew book covers spanning the series from vintage to newer. Super fun but got to the end to find one piece missing. Probably an innocent factory mistake, but I couldn't help wondering if it was someone's idea of a joke to drive puzzle doers mad. Of course I'm a mystery writer so I'm suspicious of everything;)

Totally fun, though, to see these old covers... Read more of this blog post »
