Staci Troilo grew up in Western Pennsylvania writing stories in her free time, so it was no surprise that she studied writing in college.

I don't really get writer's block. There are days I know what I want to say but can't figure out the right way to say it, but that's different than not knowing what to say at all. When that happens, I just write poorly. I can always clean up bad writing later. For people who don't know what to say at all? Well, I'd say write anything. Write gibberish if you have to. Eventually that will turn into crappy words, which will turn into something better. And then you'll have a story, which you can then go back and edit later. Who knows? The gibberish may end up being fodder for your next story, anyway.(less)

The answer will be different for everyone. It's probably different for me every day. But I think having a creative outlet for all the things I want to say is pretty darn satisfying.(less)

I often find work written in first person/present tense to be jarring. Overuse of “I” and “me” coupled with an awkward reveal of the POV character’s name and appearance usually work against an author’s intent and keep me from engaging in the story.
