Award winning author Alina K. Field earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and German literature, but her true passion is the much happier world of romance fiction. Though her roots are in the Midwestern U.S., after six very, very, very cold years in Chicago, she moved to Southern California and hasn’t looked back.

Which is not always a bad thing, but you have to get the words on the page first.
Actually, I do find myself stuck sometimes. Sometimes it's my inner critic beating me over the head. Sometimes I've dropped a thread, like dropping a stitch when you're knitting.
I have three proven strategies to get unstuck: 1) take a step back and review the characters' goals for the scene I just worked on, 2) give my self permission to write garbage, 3) glue my bottom to the chair and keep writing. (less)

“Where were we a year ago, Bink?” “In Vienna.” “In Vienna, swiving opera singers.” They shared a moment of silent recollection. “And now you’re an earl. A man of responsibility. You’ll want a wife.”
Alina K. Field, Bella's Band

“Or, unless the practical spinster routinely turned into a secret seductive siren at bedtime. Gad, could he be so blessed?”
Alina K. Field, Bella's Band

Alina K. Field, Bella's Band

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
Bernard M. Baruch

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey
