Visiting Spring Brook this morning. What’s in my composition book? Developing the back story of two of our main characters.
I find that I’m a combination of plotter and pantser (..”by the seat of your pants” type). I don’t know exactly how everything (or even what for that matter) will unfold in the town of Spring Brook, but I do like knowing who the residents are and how they fit into Spring Brook before I start. Or at least as much as I can.
She’s full of surprises that Spring Brook.
I won’t reveal too much, but I can tell you that when I write, my characters are the sum total of who I am and who I wish I was. I think this is why plagiarism is such a heinous crime. Plagiarism is essentially robbing someone’s soul and relabeling it as your own.
Spring Brook is built upon who I am, how I process the world, and what I feel. I can’t wait to share it with you, whenever that might be. Until then, I’m so glad I’m able to share this process with you. Thank you.
I’ve gotta get back to the Brook, but first – take a moment and drop me a comment – How did you meet your best friend? How long have you been friends? And how have they impacted your life. Answer all or one here or on my Facebook page The Mustard Seed @TheMustardSeedBlog
