An American, born in the Capital and raised in the deep south, who fell in love with a man who lived in a frozen wasteland. Who knew snow could stay on the ground forever? In love with the enchantment of a winter wonderland, she packed up and moved to Sweden. Then reality set in.

Personally, I have two ways of overcoming writer's block: either attacking it head on, or letting it simmer for a while.

When I attack it, I grab pencil and paper (for some reason going back to handwritten notes works wonders) and begin to write. It doesn't matter if it makes sense or not. I write about random things. I try to describe the curtains. I imagine a set of curtains in a spaceship. I imagine torn curtains. I wonder who would have torn curtains. In short, I brainstorm for at least twenty minutes. Longer, if necessary.

This is particularly helpful when I sit down to begin each scene, though I usually already have a general idea of what happens, it helps to brainstorm it and flesh it out.

If I've brainstormed and still haven't pushed past the block, I let it simmer. It usually means something is rattling around in my head and I need to let it flesh it out some more. While it simmers, I don't try to write. I take a walk, begin sketching, or relax in some other way. After a day or two, it will usually come to me.

I love telling the stories of average people, and the possibilities that exist within us all to achieve something great. I love making a connection with a reader. That's why I became a writer. To write the stories of characters, so that readers can hear and enjoy their stories, so they can connect with each other. (less)

Summer is Here

On Wednesday, my writing group held its last session for the Spring term this year. The official feedback sessions are closed and most of us are getting ready to travel. Summer in Sweden always fascinates me. Everyone leaves! Everyone. It’s like a weird horror movie. Homemade signs stuck in windows saying something like ‘Closed until…
