Reading Nook has hosted me for an Author Interview in the wake of my recent publication of my High Fantasy Young Adult book, Stardust Destinies I Variate Facing.
Here’s a Preview with one of the eleven questions.
4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?
Sometimes I will plan a bit ahead, especially when it comes to filling in plot holes. A lot of the time, however, I had only a main idea, or a general idea of where things are going. I do write notes for certain scenes, or have certain scenes in mind, but then I have to get to that point or make it make sense. Usually what happens is I start writing and the story unfolds as I write. I am the instrument and my hand moves, and I discover the story as it unfolds on the paper in front of me. Sometimes I write dozens of pages and haven’t gotten to that point in the story I was thinking about writing yet.
