There are a lot of things Inda Herwood is obsessed with, but writing and reading are her biggest addictions. All day from the moment she gets up she's thinking about book ideas, finding new series to read, or actually writing (when she really should be editing) her newest brain child. Her goal in life is to fit as much humor and sarcasm into a book as possible.

She also loves drawing, painting, watching football and hockey while yelling at the tv like a good American, and spending time with her family.

I'm the character I'm writing and I can be whomever I want to be. I almost compare it to being an actor. An actor gets a script and becomes that character whole heartedly. The same can be said for a writer. You are in that character's head for a long time and it's like you get a mini vacation away from your real life worries. Getting to be whomever I want to be when I write is my favorite part.(less)

My first word of advice would be to really think through the idea for your story. The best books are those that are detailed and well constructed. Meaning if you get an idea, don't immediately write it down on your laptop and go with it as it is. Write the idea down in a notebook and think over it for a few days. With that time your mind naturally builds the scheme, making it more realistic. So over all for rule one : Really give your story a lot of thought and detail.

For number two, I suggest asking other authors about their experience and questioning them on some of the more technical and buisness-like aspects of being a writer. Whether it is designing a cover, wondering about copyright, or just asking what writing program to use, an experienced author is a well of information just waiting to be tapped. But I do suggest you befriend them before you go messaging Goodreads authors random questions lol.

And for my final word of wisdom and probably my most important rule : If writing starts to feel like a job, STOP. If you drag your feet on your way to the computer, absolutely stop in your tracks and reevaluate. Being a writer is more than a job, it's a passion. Just like an artist loves to paint a landscape, a story teller loves to twist a new tale. And if you never feel that excitement with your fingers poised over the keys, then I suggest you take a step back and give yourself a break. Good writing needs inspiration, not aggravation.

I hope this helps for any of you writers out there!(less)

“Well, aren't you a spicy little thing." Said Silas as he gave an appreciative look at Tori. "If you think I'm spicy now, you should see me when I have Mexican. I'm a regular jalépeno." She explained with hands proudly placed on her hips, sporting a sinister smile aimed at the Frenchman. He and the guys laughed while I rolled my eyes. Praying we wouldn't get fired for her wicked tongue.”
Inda Herwood, Jump Start My Heart

“You need to give me some answers. Like, now. I'm done with this bullshit excuse that nothing is different about you." "Swearing isn't ladylike." He responds drily, like that's the only thing I just said. I roll my eyes at his old ways and say just to annoy him, "Bullshit. I'm not a lady which you should know by now, dumbass." I can't believe it, but he actually lifts a corner of his mouth in an almost smile.”
Inda Herwood, Finding My Halo

“And you don't even know my family. We're like rabies, we fester, make you go crazy, and most of the time, my mother is foaming at the mouth. So please tell me your family is like a heart attack.a nice, quick death instead of long term torture.”
Inda Herwood, Jump Start My Heart

“Give 'em hell babe.”
Quinn Loftis, Beyond the Veil

“Jennifer, you have to wake up and ride me”
Quinn Loftis, Out of the Dark

“Kiss me, k-k-kiss me, infect me with your love, and fill me with your poison, take me, t-t-take me, wanna be your victim, ready for abduction boy, you're a werewolf, your touch is so furry, its supernatural, extra-werewolf-iestrial," Jen sung as loud as she could.”
Quinn Loftis, Blood Rites

“When you say gorgeous,” Jen started, “are we talking Brad Pitt boyish good looks, or Johnny Depp make ya want to slap somebody?” “No, we’re talking Brad and Johnny need to bow down and recognize” Jacque answered.”
Quinn Loftis, Prince of Wolves

“Ugh, I swear I'd rather stab myself in the eye with a spoon repeatedly than be nice to some idiot, which means pretty much anyone I come in contact with. Damn, I'd be stabbing my eye a lot.”
Quinn Loftis, Beyond the Veil
