Be patient, it’s not going to happen over night. That is my biggest struggle.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing about a book?
The most important thing is how it makes you feel, the overall presence it leaves when you finish it.
What is your writing process like?
I take an idea or a blurb and let it flourish, take over until it says what it needs to say.
Do you have a set schedule for writing, or do you only write when you feel inspired?
I work full time so I write in between when I’m able to. Although, if an idea hits me I like to have a notebook handy just in case.
