My 5 Star Review

You may or may not know that I am a hobby author.  This morning I woke up and checked my e-mail and found out that a fellow hobby author Larraine Harrison (Author of Red Snow). Gave me a 5 star review on Amazon for my book Price of Freedom.

This review came just in time. I was thinking of finishing up the two stories I had started and then just letting it all go. I had lost the desire to write anything. I never started writing for the fame or glory. I didn't expect to become a best seller. It is just something I do to express myself. I have been firmly against becoming a full-time author because I hate expectations. I started writing short stories to relieve my own anxiety. When I write, I slip into my characters life and disappear from mine for a while.My stories are inspired by things that have happened to me, nightmares I had, real life events that have seemed to impact me in some way.

When I get an idea in my head, the first step I use to write it down is obsession. All I can think about are my characters, how they would react in the situations I put them in, what type of supporting characters they would need, and the tone I want the story.

The next step is the real rough draft. My mom is one of my editors, and she laughs when I "create my own language in a spot that I get really into." My handwriting turns into something between print, cursive and some foreign language. So Kudos to mom for her translation skills.

Then after mom reads it, I start the typing process. This part frustrates everyone that lives with me because almost nothing stays the same. Details get added, parts I don't really like get taken out ect.

Then the final draft is uploaded to Lulu and published.
