My Writing Process
My writing process all starts with a spark in my mind. I can see something, an object, a tree, a house. I can hear something. All it takes is one little spark for an idea to begin. Once the idea is started I begin fleshing out characters. Who do I feel would be best for this idea? What is their names? How do they look? How do they act? How do they talk? I write out their descriptions, just very basic and then I start with a plot outline. I keep the characters basic because during the plot outline they become more real and develop a lot more. They may make changes on me, and that’s perfectly okay. It’s all about them becoming who they’re meant to be in the book. I even make the outline basic. Such as “A” happens, which leads to “B” and then “C” occurs. I keep it simple because when I actually begin writing, I never know what those characters may change on me. I spend so much time creating them, that they do become real and have minds of their own. While I may plan “A” leads to “B” which then goes to “C,” my character may scream and yell, “No way, lady! “A” will happen but “B” and “C” is never happening and I am moving to “D” and “E” whether you like it or not.” I feel that because I do spend so much time creating the characters and the outline that when I do go really get things written it will flow steadily for me. At this point I’ve gotten to know the story and the character’s minds and they lead the way for me. Getting to the actual writing part can take a while, but I feel it’s better that way. By the time I do reach the writing point, the characters are ready to go. =)
Loverboy by Trista Jaszczak
Genre: contemporary romance
When Charlotte Murphy escapes from the ruthless serial rapist and killer, Loverboy, she finds herself completely lost and scared to death. Lost, frightened, recovering, and in the sights of a brutal killer. In a most odd but clever tactic from the police, they assign Charlie 24/7 live-in protection; a move that is supposed to comfort her and make healing easier. Somehow, despite the odds, Charlie finds a refuge in officer Nick Andrews and in his arms she finds the strength to heal and the courage to move on with life. Nick finds everything that he wasn’t looking for in Charlie’s eyes and a fight against a killer that becomes personal.Source: Info in the About Loverboy was from the press kit from the publicity team.
