As far as technique with regard to mechanics, I have dozens of napkins and old grocery lists full of ideas and plot suggestions and dialogue that comes to me when I’m busy doing life instead of writing at the computer. I’m not afraid to let things sit and brew for a few days. I wait for the right ideas to surface and try not to force things too much.
I take inspiration from emotions and the collective experiences that draw people together. At the end of the day, we are all much more alike than we are different and what we are all really looking for is acceptance. Capturing emotions and stories that resonate with all of us in our unique ways is my passion.
I sit on my living room sofa with my blanket and my cats and I write during the day while the house is quiet and I’m alone. No music. No television. No distractions whatsoever. I can’t write when there are other people in the house. I use that time for marketing instead.
