Amanda Leigh has had a love of words since before she could write them herself. Once she learned to read and write herself she just couldn’t stop. She reads any genre as long as the book sounds interesting. Which may explain why she can’t and never will be able to stick to one genre in her writing. From Contemporary Romance to Women’s Fiction to Paranormal Romance to Poetry and more to come. When she’s not writing or reading she enjoys getting swept away in a great TV show, going to the theater, listening to music, cooking and many different forms of art. She has a cat she adores and also loves Psychology, tea, coffee, chocolate and Elvis Presley. Not necessarily in that order. Feel free to get in touch with her.

I would also say to learn about the basics and the craft of writing. I minored in Creative Writing but there are many books you can read on the subject. Also, I do think you should record your ideas. Even if you think it won’t amount to something, record it somehow, maybe it will turn into something later. (less)

I find the right music before I even start the novel, usually, and then it helps to get me in the mood for the scene that I'm going to write. But if that still is not enough - sometimes it isn't - maybe I'll try some free writing about the scene or in a character's Point of View. Or discuss what I'm stuck on with my Critique Partner. Or sometimes, I end up just staring at the screen for a while. (less)

“Time passes too fast.
Like a hummingbird flying by,
it’s just a blur to my eyes.”
Amanda Leigh, Thousands of Mornings: Original Poetry and Photography

quiet the thoughts
running through my head?
Put down the pen
and climb
snugly
into bed?”

“I don’t understand
how everything moves so quickly.
They say time flies when you’re having fun,
but I wasn’t always having fun.
Even when I was mad or sad,
time was always on the run.”

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“It’s funny—when people call you “shy,” they usually smile. Like it’s cute, some funny little habit you’ll grow out of when you’re older, like the gaps in your grin when your baby teeth fall out. If they knew how it felt—really being shy, not just unsure at first—they wouldn’t smile. Not if they knew how the feeling knots up your stomach or makes your palms sweat or robs you of the ability to say anything that makes sense. It’s not cute at all.”
Claudia Gray, Evernight

“Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“Black is the color of night. White is the true color of death”
