I’m finding more and more that I don’t have as much time as I used to. I’d be able to post almost daily when I was deployed. Now I have to wait until I’ve finished the day until I can sit down and do my daily fact. Again, I owe you all two facts. 6 days!
Fact 1: I think the most important part of writing is staying honest to yourself and your characters. At some point, you’re going to want to change your story to what you think is best or what you’d be more comfortable with. Stay away from that. You do what your characters tell you. THEY are the story. You’re merely the vessel bringing it to the rest of the world. At times, my characters would annoy the crap out of me. But in the end, they knew what was best. They always do!
Fact 2: Almost from the very beginning, I knew what I wanted the cover of Mystic Waters to look like. It was very easy to explain it to Rosemi, who the explained it to the men who’d bring it to life. And I couldn’t be happier. Only a few tweaks and I feel like it’s a masterpiece. I never get tired of looking at it. And I can’t wait for you all to see the story behind it!
