Well, that’s typical. I just got through saying I don't like talking about my creative process, and in my very next post, here I am, yammering on about my creative process.
There’s a meme going around Twitter in which authors tag other authors; tagged authors must then post answers to a few brief questions about their work. You can read their responses by following the #MyWritingProcess hashtag on Twitter. Last week, author Salem Archer tagged me. Salem and I were both in competition for this year’s Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, me for Lonely Satellite, Salem for Moondance in Red. She first appeared on my radar after she delivered a cold, brilliant, discussion-ending smackdown on someone who was being a nitwit on a message board, which made me instantly realize this smart, cool lady was worth knowing. You can visit her author site here.
This is not the sort of thing I usually do here at Preppies. Ergo, to avoid alienating my core readership, my answers will be interspersed with pretty pictures of Duran Duran, which I have doctored in Photoshop for enhanced eighties appeal (also because I'm having a rough week, and I find Photoshop oddly soothing).
