I received this question the other day and thought everyone would like to read it and my reply:
“This topic is quite hot on the Internet at the moment. What do you pay the most attention to when choosing what to write about?”
Hmmm..I dont think I choose what I will write about, I think that my topics choose me! Or rather, they seem to jump out at me when I sit down to type. For some people choosing what to write can cause them to be blocked. There are so many topics and plots and story lines to choose from. How could I possibly pick just one! I don’t; I write about whatever strikes me at the moment. The thing is to learn enough discipline to finish a project once started. If I am not careful, I can bounce around from project to project and never complete one. Its a struggle! lol. For instance, I currently have 5 different stories in different stages of completion, from being in the plotting stage to being 2/3rds of the way fininshed. I guess the most important thing is to figure out a way of working that suits you and then the ideas will flow!
