Sorry for being a bit quiet lately. I had some stuff going on.
Thankfully things seem to be getting better!
Now onto answering questions 5 and 6 from my post.
Over writer, under writer, or just right?
I do a mixture. Sometimes I write too much and cut out the unnecessary details and other times…mainly when I’m trying not to reveal too much to the reader I’ll under write. I’d love to say that I always get a scene “just right” but even when I’m mostly satisfied with what I’ve written, I still edit them just as I would with any other.
Which is your favourite part of the writing process: planning, drafting or revising?
I absolutely love, love, love the planning process. I probably spend most of my time planning (aside from writing and editing). It’s when I can let my imagination free and build upon the layers of my story!
I like deciding on the settings, the characters, the rules of the world…and then building upon that. Usually I’ll do a mixture of research and imagination at this stage. Sometimes I do even more research during the drafting and revisions!
I just have so much fun with this part.
