Kate Corcino is a reformed shy girl who found her voice (and uses it...a lot). She believes in magic, coffee, Starburst candies, genre fiction, descriptive profanity, and cackling over wine with good friends. A recovering Dr. Pepper addict, she knows the only addiction worth feeding is the one that follows the "click-whooooosh" of a new story settling into her brain.

She also believes in the transformative power of screwing up and second chances. Cheers to works-in-progress of the literary and lifelong variety!

If I can feel them hovering right there, just out of mental reach, I'll go for a drive and run through a playlist or put the radio on a random station. Some of my best scenes are the result of musical/driving breakthroughs. I think it's the combination of focusing on something else and the music that allows the creative part of the brain to just relax.

If it's longer term -- more than a few hours -- I pick up a good book. I generally choose old standby's, such as classic sci fi or urban fantasy. There are certain authors that always inspire me to write again.

So I suppose the way I deal with writer's blockage is to lose myself in the creative work of others, whether music or books. (less)

The best thing about being a writer? When people read my stories and fall in love with my imaginary friends.

I had a discussion with a beta reader where I was outlining something that was going to happen with Alex (my male main character in Spark Rising) in Direct Current.

"Oh, no," she told me. "My Alex would never do that."

I didn't know whether to be outraged or giggle with delight. Knowing that someone else was as committed to my characters as I am was (is) an amazing feeling.

(And she was right, by the way. Alex would never do that. The outline was adjusted.)(less)

“I was in the darkness,” he began, quoting the poem. “I could not see my words Nor the wishes of my heart. Then suddenly there was a great light—” He stopped at the stanza break, grinning at Thomas for effect. “’Let me into the darkness again.’ That’s what we do, you know. We stumble around until we get what we want, and then once we see exactly what it was we really wanted we’re terrified of it.”
Kate Corcino, Spark Rising

“Everything about him screamed C-notes and sex.”
Kate Corcino, Spark Rising

“What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic."

[Cosmos, Part 11: The Persistence of Memory (1980)]”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos
