You’ve written novels, articles, manuals, and Bible studies. Do you have a favorite? Which one gets you into a writing flow faster?
The basic answer is whichever I am writing at the time is my favorite. I have the most fun by telling story so novels and short stories fit that format the best. Manuals are the hardest for me, but even my Bible studies are created in a storytelling format. As long as I can tell the story the format doesn’t matter a lot.
You’re one busy woman. An active member of Toastmasters International, Words for the Journey Christian Writers Guild, American Christian Fiction Writers, and the Christian Writers Guild. When do you make time to write?
First I have to say I am also creating writing conferences for teen writers in my area, which connects to my passion to help new and young writers. That adds to my busyness. All of this does impact my own writing and if I don’t specifically make time for myself, I don’t get any writing done. Therefore, I have to schedule time for myself. I actually set appointments when I go to places like the library or quiet coffee/tea houses. I leave the cell phone in my purse and do not turn on the internet on the computer. I have to take these steps to focus on my writing.
