I find it's important to write everyday, and when I can't, I notice that my mind is working, thinking of the possibilities of what could happen next. Sometimes, I write for hours at a time, other times, it's a few minutes here and there.
I'm comfortable writing anywhere I sit. I put in my earbuds and turn up the music to block out sound distractions. I don't need a desk or a quiet office. I love technology, and having portable device gives me the ability to work from anywhere, any time.
I read a lot of different genres to learn what's out there, giving me a strong understanding of different styles. This knowledge allows me to bring in aspects of different genres, creating a fuller story.
I love watching thrillers, suspense, and, of course, horror movies. Watching, as well, as reading helps to get the creative juices flowing. I don't just watch scary movies, I enjoy other genres too, but I won't tell you what, I'd hate to ruin my reputation.
Having a full-time job, sometimes it can be difficult to find time to write. That's why having a light-weight portable computer is important. I can write in my car or on the park bench at lunch, or while in bed before I go to sleep.
Writing what I see before it's too late.
