Writers on Writing: Stefanie London

stefanie-london-smlStefanie London is the USA Today bestselling author of over ten contemporary romances with humour, heat and heart.

Growing up, Stefanie came from a family of women who loved to read. Thus, it was no surprise Stefanie was the sort of student who would read her English books before the semester started. After sneaking several literature subjects into her ‘very practical’ Business degree, she got a job in Communications.

When writing emails and newsletters didn’t fulfil her creative urges, she turned to fiction and was finally able to write the stories that kept her mind busy at night.

Originally from Australia, she now lives in Toronto with her very own hero and is currently in the process of doing her best to travel the world. She frequently indulges in her passions for good coffee, lipstick, romance novels and zombie movies.10996090_1603341489879313_3655922765488318212_n

What is the most important thing you’ve learned about writing?

That you have to find a healthy balance between trusting yourself and taking advice. It’s absolutely possible to edit the life out of a manuscript by taking on every piece of advice you receive (especially if you’re getting feedback from multiple sources). However, some of the best changes I’ve made to my manuscripts were based on editorial feedback. The more you write the better you’ll be able to tell the good advice from the not so good.

How has this helped you as a writer?

It’s made my editorial process a little less stressful, because I’m able to trust my gut more when making decisions on how to refine my stories. I’m better at picking up when something isn’t working and figuring out how to fix it. Whereas before, revisions were a lengthy process because I was still learning so much and I didn’t always trust myself to take a story in the right direction.

Mac or PC?

I have always been a PC kinda gal, but I bought my first MacBook a few weeks ago. I’m still trying to figure it out!

Do you use Word or Scrivener?

Both. I’ve used Word for most of my writing life, but I recently started playing around with Scrivener. Initially I wanted to use it for creating series documents/bibles. But now I’m starting to see how it might work for my process of writing stories as well.slws

Do you write or take notes with an iPad or tablet?

Nope. I use my iPad for internet browsing and reading eBooks only.

Do you have any writing rituals?

Does needing to have a coffee with me at all times count? Not really. I tend to write later in the day (after lunch) because that’s when I’m most creative, but otherwise I sit down and write. Sometimes I re-read sections, sometimes I don’t. I usually just go with the flow.

Do you start by writing or researching first?

I usually start by doing some high-level plotting and digging into my characters. This allows me to come up with my concept, a rough guide of what the story is going to be about (including my turning points) and the main goals and conflicts of my characters. Whether or not I research depends on the book. Because I write contemporary romances, the level of research purely depends on the topics/subject matter covered in the book. Some have a lot of research and others have very little.millionaireunderthemistletoe_500x750-2-e1475860407826

Favorite spot to write in the winter?

In my apartment with a coffee and a blanket.

Favorite spot to write in the summer?

In summer, I sometimes venture out to cafes to write. But I have such a nice spot to write at home, I’m perfectly happy there as well.

Writers on Writing: Debbie Johnson

debbie-johnson-author-photoDebbie Johnson is a best-selling author who lives and works in Liverpool, where she divides her time between writing, caring for a small tribe of children and animals, and not doing the housework.

She worked as a journalist for many years, until she decided it would be more fun to make up her own stories than to tell other people’s. After trying her hand at pretty much every genre of writing other than Westerns and spy dramas, she has settled on women’s fiction that seems to make people laugh and make people cry, often at the same time.

Her books include The Birthday That Changed Everything, Pippa’s Cornish Dream, and Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe, all published by HarperCollins. She also ghost-wrote model and presenter Abbey Clancy’s debut novel, Remember My Name.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned about writing?

That it’s a craft that needs to be learned, as much as a natural gift. I do think to some extent you have to have a natural talent to tell stories, use words, create pictures and character – but that will get you as far as a couple of scenes, or a lovely few chapters. The rest of it – how to structure a whole book, pace, balance, writing for certain audiences – is a skill. Some of it you can learn through other people, and by reading analytically – but mainly I’d say you simply need to get stuck on, give it a go, and constantly be looking for ways to improve. Don’t be afraid of criticism, always remain open to the fact that your work of genius might not be quite as brilliant as you like to believe!christmas-at-the-comfort-food-cafe-2

How has this helped you as a writer?

It’s helped me to progress from being someone with some great ideas to being someone with some books published! If you want to write for your own pleasure, to create art, then go for it. The world needs that. But if you want to write with the aim of making a living, and if you want other people to read and enjoy your stories, then you have to counter the creative process with commercial realism. I’m not saying you need to chase trends – that doesn’t usually work – but that you need to think beyond your own satisfaction, and try to imagine your book being read by someone who isn’t you. Have you explained your heroines motives in a way that makes the story believable? Have you answered all the questions that need to be answered? Would anybody other than you give a damn? A good editor – or a good friend – can help you with all of this, but you can also get into the discipline of doing it yourself as you gain experience. It’s a good idea to be your own benign critic.

Mac or PC?

PC.

Do you use Word or Scrivener?

Word. I don’t even know what Scrivener is!

Do you write or take notes with an iPad or tablet?

No, I am old school and use a little notebook and a pen.

Do you have any writing rituals?

I get myself into the right frame of mind by drinking vats of coffee, and trying to ensure that nothing else is lurking in the corners of my brain to distract me – because it will! I drop my kids off at school, come home, make the coffee, mess around on social media for half an hour, then plunge right in. I usually work for a solid four hours or so, before doing a few jobs around the house and going off to get the kids from school again.

Do you start by writing or researching first?

It depends on the book, and the topic. It’s easy to get so hung up on research that you lose sight of the fact that you are writing fiction. It’s important to get authenticity, but not so much that you spend the whole day on google maps, or reading up on the history of the Mafia, or whatever!

Favorite spot to write in the winter?

On my sofa, with my dogs by my side!

Favorite spot to write in the summer?

As above – although it is sometimes nice to venture into a green space and enjoy the sunlight.

She is also Hal Elrod’s business partner in The Miracle Morning book series. She also does all sorts of other magical things, and her badassery is legendary.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned about writing?

Good writing comes from a consistent writing habit. The more you write, and work with editors to help you develop your writing craft, the better you’ll get. Developing a writing habit, that is exercised daily or at least 5-6 days a day, is crucial.

How has this helped you as a writer?

I think I’m a better writer than I was when I wrote my first book 12 years ago (at least I hope I am!).

Mac or PC?

Mac, of course!

Do you use Word or Scrivener?

Both.ymwb-cover-front-final

Do you write or take notes with an iPad or tablet?

Yes, I use Evernote on all of my devices. I love using my iPad (with a keyboard) to write in moments of inspiration when I don’t have my computer.

Do you have any writing rituals?

I write every day at 6 a.m. I listen to up-tempo music (everything from classical to classic rock).

Do you start by writing or researching first?

I start by forming an idea, and writing an outline. Then I write and research simultaneously.

Favorite spot to write in the winter?

On my couch with a pot of coffee, followed by a cup of tea.

Favorite spot to write in the summer?

Same as in the winter. 

Writers on Writing: Talina Perkins

talinaperkinsTalina Perkins is a bestselling romance writer of steamy military and paranormal romance books with fast paced plots, strong heroines who are always up for a challenge, and kick-ass alpha heroes.

Born and raised in Mayberry USA, this small town country girl spread her wings at the young age of fourteen and moved to Mexico where she’s lived for the past eighteen years. High on adventure and loving life, Talina now resides in sunny Puerto Vallarta with her four children and is married to a U.S. Recon Marine-her very own smokin’ hot hero.

By day she works as a cover artist and by night she spins her creativeness into intricate webs of words.

Talina also writes sweet romance as Roma Frost Hart. You can find out more about her forthcoming releases on her website.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned about writing?

That’s a tough question. I’d have to say accountability to myself. Being your own boss comes with great responsibility. No one is going to stand behind you and tell you what needs to be done. You are solely responsible for putting your butt in the chair and getting words on the paper, whether it be digital or the old fashion way, indie or traditionally published.

How has this helped you as a writer?

It’s taught me to be independent and how to rely on myself, make solid decisions in my business and to consider my job as just that—a job. It’s also taught me how to reach out to my fellow authors for help. The actual writing process might be a solitaire job, but everything that comes afterward is a team effort and I wouldn’t be anywhere without my husband, friends, and editor.

Mac or PC?

PC, but I am counting down the days until I get my hands on a Mac if only for the convenience of auto sync between devices.

Do you use Word or Scrivener?

Word. No bells and whistles for me. The more I have to play with, the more I get distracted. It’s all about getting the words on the paper. Since I am a linear writer, going one scene to the next, Word works best for me.bearwitness_adm_tp

Do you write or take notes with an iPad or tablet?

I take massive amounts of notes using my iPad. OneNote is my go-to app whether on a mobile device or my computer at home. No matter where I am—out to dinner, shopping, stuck in traffic or watching TV with the family— all of my notes are at my fingertips. I’ve learned that if I use scrap pieces of paper here or there my thoughts and random ideas for a story get lost. Since I work on three series at a time it is very important I keep my ideas straight. I would hate to have one of my dragons casting a spell that my witches should be working. 😉

Do you have any writing rituals?

I thought I needed rituals when I first started out, then I discovered it was just a way for my muse (aka me!) to procrastinate. The only thing I do is think how close my deadline is and that usually gets my fingers flying. I also like to leave my characters off in a sticky situation so that when I dive back in it’s not hard to pick up where I left off from the previous day.tpchristmaswiththebear-adm-tp_4_orig

Do you start by writing or researching first?

I start with researching everything that has to do with the current story I happen to be working on as I plot. For example, I researched the local flora and fauna of Alaska before I began writing my Wylde Den series. Though most of it didn’t show up in book one, book two and book three show a lot of the setting which plays a big part of both stories.

Favorite spot to write in the winter?

My desk! I have a little area in my bedroom (homeschooling four kids has driven me into the only place of silence in my home!) where I can slip out of the mundane world surrounding me and into the world of my characters. As soon as the noise canceling earphones go on the limits are only bound by the imagination.

Favorite spot to write in the summer?

LOL My desk. 😉 Rarely do I want to move out from under the cool cascade of air conditioning. My desk happens to be parked directly beneath our mini-split. Having lived in Puerto Vallarta for the last eighteen years, our summers consist of running from one air conditioned room to another.

Stay connected and up to date on upcoming releases, giveaways, and more. Sign up to her newsletter and never miss out on the romance! You can also follow Talina on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + and at her blog. She loves to talk with readers so please don’t be shy!

Writers on Writing: Author DNC

headshot_1DNC is an emerging writer, poet and inspiration pusher who’s debut novella, Untraditional: A Collection of Passion-Fy Short Stories, hit Amazon’s Best Seller’s list several time in its first year. With the goal of merging contemporary romance with poetic innuendos of erotica, and empowering women to pursue their personal passions in their unique way, DNC is creating a moment for something new and real in the writing arena.

At an early age in St. Louis, MO, DNC fell in love with writing. Creating her own books, with just a stapler and folded loose-leaf paper, she composed stories about best friends who travel to unknown islands and beat monsters in dark caves. As she grew, her relationship with writing translated to more mature topics like puppy love and its pain. However, their relationship would be become tested by grammar rules and her creativity began to dissipate. It was then, that she decided to take a step back and sever their connection.

She missed writing, but was unable to find a source of inspiration or motivation. It wasn’t until the devastating and sudden loss of her mother that she revisited her old love and turned to writing as her therapeutic outlet. She rekindled their affair, and would delve into darker, more sensual and alluring topics. One topic, in particular, catered to her personal imagination and intrusiveness-sexual exploration. She coined a new genre, passion-fy, that teeters the line between contemporary romance and adult erotica.

Untraditional, DNC’s debut novella, hit Amazon’s African-American Erotica Best Seller’s and was featured at the Emerging Writer’s Tent, during the 2016 Decatur Book Festival–the nation’s largest independent book festival. Her next project, a collection of poetry entitled Like. Love. Lust., will be released on November 27, 2016, and she remains excited about crossing over into new genres. She actively blogs within her blogosphere, Mid-WYFE Crisis, and shares short stories, poems and intimate details about her ongoing romance with writing through her creative writing microsite, Mid-WYFE Chronicles by DNC.

DNC currently resides in Atlanta, GA where she enjoys family life as a wife and mother of three amazing girls and two dogs. She continues to pursue her passion in writing while pushing to deliver on her most poetic dreams.20160911_073212

What is the most important thing you’ve learned about writing?

There is no formula but if you take risks and stay dedicated to honing your craft, you will always be proud of the final product.

How has this helped you as a writer?

There are a lot of standards set; “formulas” that some attempt to use. But what I’ve learned is each literary journey is different from those like Nikki Giovanni to J. K. Rowling. But the one consistent variable is always dedication and risk taking. So far, by being both, my debut, Untraditional: A Collection of Passion-Fy Short Stories has hit Amazon’s Best Seller’s List for African American Erotica several times and my readers are digging my words. That’s is the most important factor in the whole thing—reaching and engaging with readers.untraditional_coverart

Mac or PC?

Both. At home, PC is who captures my story while Mac follow’s me on the road.

Do you use Word or Scrivener?

I’m old school and stuck in my ways so I keep it simple with Word.

Do you write or take notes with an iPad or tablet?

Neither. Is prefer either my old fashion spiral notebook or my cell phone.

Do you have any writing rituals?

When I’m at home I do, where I get my wine or coffee read which depends on the time of day, light my scented candle and get the mood right with the appropriate music.

Do you start by writing or researching first?

I write and research along the way. I use what I already know or believe and fact check as I fine tune the draft.lll_cover_winningcover_c_nov2016_front

Favorite spot to write in the winter?

My home writing nook, right next to my “Off The Wall” album and daily mood dice.

Favorite spot to write in the summer?

On a calm beach with a Patron Margherita.

Coffee in the summer, and tea in the winter.

3. Favorite book of all-time?

“Love Poems” by Nikki Giovanni

4. NaNoWriMo yes or no?

Yes. This year is my first year.20160911_073212

5. Genre that you would write if you had no restrictions?

Thriller – I love reading it but have yet to finish my first novel/novella.

6. If you could have any superpower what would it be?

Mind reading so I can help people get to the point quicker especially when I’m trying to get away and go write something.

7. Favorite author?

Nikki Giovanni. Her words have always spoke to me in a special way. Plus, she loves the essence of Tupac, just like me.lll_cover_winningcover_c_nov2016_front

8. What kind of music do you listen to when you write?

Depends on what part of the story I’m on but normally for my passion-fy stories, I choose old school R&B and Soul – something like the Isley Brothers.

9. If you could live anywhere in the world where will it be?

Great question. Anywhere with a winery on the property.

10. What do you do when you get writer’s block?

I try several things; yoga, read or watch a movie. Hell, I’ll even take a nap. Those always work.

11. Are you a plotter or a pantser?untraditional_coverart

Pantser for the most part. I’d rather have things flow organically than outline. When I’ve tried to outline, I rarely stick to it.

12. Do you have a playlist for your characters?

Not for my characters, but for my stories, since I’m a short story writer. Each story has its own rhythm and mood.

13. Do you write every day?

Absolutely! I’ve learned that repetition creates a habit and a habit feeds a passion. Writing keeps me breathing and seeing, so I literally have to do it every day.

Author Fun: 13 Questions About Patti Benning!

1. Where is your favorite place to write?

Well, I have completely taken over the den as my office so I am loving being able to write in there. I have such a great set up and am even considering adding a mini fridge and a coffee maker. 😉

2. Coffee or Tea?

All of the above? I’ve recently been forced into trying iced coffee and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the weather is going to be getting pretty chilly and I’ll have to stick with my warm beverages for now. English Breakfast tea and black coffee.

3. Favorite book of all-time?

You Bet Your Life. The 18th book in The Murder She Wrote Series. I must have read it 5 times!

4. NaNoWriMo yes or no?

It is something that I have thought about but because the stories that I write are shorter in length, I always felt that I’d not be “winning” since it would be more than one novel equaling that high word count. I have never had a problem getting my words on to paper, thankfully, so maybe someday I’ll give it a shot if I ever choose to branch out of the cozy mystery genre.

5. Genre that you would write if you had no restrictions?

You know, I really think I would still write mysteries but I would really love to be able to write a romantic mystery. The same feel-good stuff that’s in a cozy, but with a larger romance component.

6. If you could have any superpower what would it be?

I’ve always had such a hard time answering this! My grandson asks me all the time. I have to say, it’s a toss up between being able to understand and speak to animals, and super-human strength. Quite the mix huh?

7. Favorite author?

Debbie Macomber. There is just something so inviting about every one of her books and I’ve read them ALL!

8. What kind of music do you listen to when you write?

I prefer quiet when I write. Occasionally I may have the television on in the background but it’s rare.

9. If you could live anywhere in the world where will it be?

Somewhere warm and on the beach. I’m not picky!

10. What do you do when you get writer’s block?

Muddle my way through it and keep going. Sometimes I end up writing words that have nothing to do with the story but I keep going either way and remove the stuff that makes no sense when I do my first round of self-editing.

11. Are you a plotter or a pantser?

I don’t really do much for plotting, I have my version of an outline which is sometimes just random thoughts I put together and I do my best to go by what that says but sometimes the characters take action and what they want to do outweighs what I want to do!

12. Do you have a playlist for your characters?

I’ve never thought of this, so no, I do not but it would be kind of fun to see what songs I could think of that may match up to some of my favorite characters!

13. Do you write every day?

With both the Pizzeria Series and the Killer Cookie Series going on right now, I do generally write every day. I have nothing to complain about though because I love that I am able to do this and would even try to write a third series if I could.

Writers on Writing: Victoria Fry

victoria-fry-headshotVictoria Fry is a writing coach who’s there to be your creative catalyst and help you tell the stories jostling for room in your heart and mind!

What is the most important thing you’ve learned about writing?

That there’s no one size fits all definition for what makes someone a “real” writer. We all have our own habits, our own rituals, our own processes, and our own way of doing things, and people who (hopefully unintentionally) make you feel like a “lesser” writer because of the way you conduct your writing life are totally off-base.

I’m going to cheat a little and mention a second thing, but it’s related to what I just said and equally as important, and that’s that we create in seasons. We don’t have to be writing thousands of words every day to make progress with our writing. In fact, doing that and nothing else is a good way not to make progress. We need time to take care of ourselves, toy with writing prompts and new ideas, and delve into the planning stages, too, or we’ll pay the price mentally, physically, and creatively.

I call these different steps along the way “creative seasons” because they follow a cyclical pattern, and certain seasonal qualities match up well with the different stages, e.g. spring’s sense of refreshment and renewal with our need for self-care. The more we allow ourselves to move through each of the creative seasons, the better equipped we are for a long, productive, and joyful creative life.

How has this helped you as a writer?

It helped me salvage my love of writing. I got so caught up in industry standards and the “right” way to do things that I almost gave up writing for good. It was only once I’d walked away from it for a while and then come back to it with an open mind, one that was determined to combine the joy of writing I felt as a youngster with the discipline I’ve developed over time, that writing and I found each other again. This time it’s for keeps.

Mac or PC?

I’m a PC gal, through and through!

Do you use Word or Scrivener?

Microsoft Word. I’ve heard wonderful things about Scrivener and am particularly keen to check out its formatting options for ebooks, but I’ve loved writing in Microsoft Word for well over a decade. I don’t think that’ll change anytime soon.

Do you write or take notes with an iPad or tablet?

I don’t have either of those, but I do occasionally send myself text messages with story notes if I’m out and about without a notebook or my bullet journal, or if it’s late at night and I don’t want to turn on the light. I know, I know, the glare from the screen is awful, but I counteract that with an app called “Twilight,” which makes it much easier on the eyes.

Do you have any writing rituals?

Listening to music. What I listen to depends on my mood at the time, which character I’m writing about, and what’s going on in the scene. It could be anything from dubstep to pop to country, but I usually pull up RainyMood.com and have that in the background, too. If I’m really struggling to focus, sometimes RainyMood is all I’ll listen to.

Do you start by writing or researching first?

I might write a line or two, if the first thing that comes to mind is a scene (this usually happens if I’ve been inspired while watching a movie or TV show) but otherwise I tend to spend some time getting to know my characters and the stories behind their story first.

As for actual research, I do enough that I can write my rough draft without stopping every four seconds to look something up. Otherwise, I add placeholders in all caps that I can sort out as I work my way through the second draft.

Favorite spot to write in the winter?

I mostly write on my desktop computer at the moment, but if I’m using my laptop or (occasionally) writing by hand, in winter I love heading down to Starbucks, cozying up in one of their armchairs, sipping a cup of cocoa with a dollop of whipped cream, and listening to Christmas songs while I write.

Favorite spot to write in the summer?

As much as I’d love to be able to write outside during the summer, I usually end up just basking like a cat in the sun. That means if any heavy writing sessions are going to happen, I have to sit my butt down at my desk, put my headphones on, start up a music playlist, and tune out all the summer loveliness outside. When I’m done, then I can enjoy the summer sun.
