My Writing Process Blog Hop ~ 5th May

My lovely author friend Debi O’Neille,  invited me to participate in today's Writing Process Blog Hop. The idea behind this blog hop is for readers to meet new author they may not otherwise come across, so... in advance, thank you for joining me today, and a big thank you to Debbie for inviting me to join in.

What am I working on?
While I have several works in progress at the moment, the one I am concentrating on is called Born Again and is going to take quite a while to complete because it requires a lot of research into technicalities and background.
It hasn't helped that I recently participated in a wonderful workshop about deep pov and now I feel I have to pretty much start over on this project!! LOL.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I find this a difficult question to answer. I'd like to think it is because my writing voice is just that - mine. It may have limitations, within the genre, but I prefer to think of it as changing scenery on a journey. We all take journeys, and even if we travel the same route, we may notice different things.

Why do I write what I do?
Because I love reading romances. I like books that have a 'feel-good-factor' ending. And the genre of romance covers just about every other genre in existance. It is just the slant that is different. 
How does my writing process work?
I wish I could say 'smoothly' but that would be an 'economy of the truth'. Like most writers, on a good day it flows, the ideas pile up like kids in a playground waiting to be noticed and chosen. On other days, I wonder what I'm doing sitting in front of the computer and waiting for inspiration. (Which is why I have so many WsIP - I keep switching in the hope something will work!)

I am hoping that two distinctly different writers will agree to carry this blog hop forward and will add their connections as soon as I have details.
I am delighted to announce that Jeff Salter will share his writing process with you at Take Two  Romance on the 19th May.
And that David Knight is sharing his today, 8th May, at http://www.ascensionforyou.co.uk/blog/?p=1865 .

My latest project, The Magpie Chronicles, a collection of thirteen short stories of mixed genre, is due for release in the next few days.
