About Me

Writing means different things to me. I'm a storyteller, a book editor, and a songwriter. For me, it's like breathing.

When I have trouble with my "creative flow" music always seems to help. My favorites are Evanescence and Loreena McKennitt. For some reason, when I put these cds on, my mind opens up and my fingers fly over the keyboard. It must be magic! I have finished my character charts and am ready to start working on my second book again. The character charts are very helpful. I highly recommend creating character charts at least for the major characters. It is amazing how much it opened up my mind to the character's feelings and motivations. Truly amazing!

Music has always been my strongest muse, especially when I put my favorites on. I tend to be more productive with music playing in the background.

Yay for you with those character charts! I've never been able to do them, myself, but I'm glad they're working for you.

I never did character charts before, but I thought I would try it. I was really surprised how much it helped because I was pretty skeptical about it.
