GUEST POST

How to write:

 

I’ve read there are certain ways your supposed to approach writing; outlines… etc. I don’t wish to put down anyone who is organized and successful with this process because why reinvent the wheel, right? It’s just that my brain doesn’t work this way. It never has. Yes, this has made some goals throughout life a bit challenging. Maybe that is why I always find myself rooting for the underdog. Every time I’ve been told, “You’re not tall enough… You’re not strong enough…” I mischievously grin and find a way.

 

I don’t fight my brain, and it rewards me for my cooperation.

 

Example? My Wolf and Me was created from one vision. Out of the blue, my mind showed me an injured naked woman handing a little girl in the woods a puppy. This woman was on the ground, shaking, and appearing so concerned for this creature in her arms (because her end was clearly coming) broke my heart. And when this little girl, tenderly reached out to collect the offering, nodding with a promise, my heart sighed. The emotions shown in these few seconds claimed there to be two stories: Who is the little girl? And why did this woman have to surrender a puppy she obviously treasures?

 

I started with this precious little girl who appeared to be around 6. As a mother, my first question to answer was, “Why is she in the woods alone?” So I started to write, following her journeys in the forest. I named her Marlena and learned she is fearless with a wonderful imagination. When Marlena is greeted my two huge wolves, she welcomes them into her world. Little does she know, this action makes her, permanently, a part of theirs.

 

And for the woman? Why was she so worried about the little puppy? Because most mothers will do anything for their child. Being a wolf shifter doubles that intensity.

 

My novel, Rain? The first book in the Stranger In The Woods series? That one started with a vision of a young woman being bit on the neck by a ravage looking hunk of a man with the wildest blue electric eyes I’ve ever seen. By his jaw movements, this was no vampire. I knew he was giving, not taking. And by the way his strong arms held the woman tightly and his whole body molded to hers, I knew he was in love with her. Because of the trapped woman appearing so alarmed yet not fighting him, I knew she recognized him on a different level. Her heart was begging for her to trust (ready for it?) The Stranger In The Woods.

 

So, to all writers out there who think they may be crazy (because of all the crazy going on inside their head) I say set your imagination free! Ya never know where it may take you.
