7 Things About Writing  

Isabelle Rowan tagged me to say 7 things about my writing life.

1. I really am a night owl. 80% of my writing gets done between midnight and 3am. It means when I'm writing my sleeping schedule is fucked with a capital F.

2. When I was writing Tigers and Devils I missed my dear friend Fran so much I gave her name to a character. Who was a het married woman. It was a bit of a contrast.

3. It's true what they say about becoming emotionally invested in your characters. I feel like Simon and Dec are real people and I get disappointed I can't hang out with them properly.

4. I love if I have to research for a book. I just ordered some stuff so I can figure out the AFL draft process properly for the Tigers spin-off I'm currently writing. I'd hate to be half-arsed and then have people nitpick. You may change things for dramatic license, but you like the gist of it to be right.

5. The best part of writing is reading. Read, read, read. The more you read, the more you will understand about the writing process.

6. I always have someone in my head who 'resembles' the character, and other people are often horrified by my vision. One hundred percent of the time I'm usually horrified by how they imagine them as well.

7. Sometimes I get scared that the only thing I can write is Simon Murray. And sometimes I think, well, if that's it, then I can be pretty happy about it as well.

I write for fun (no desire at all to publish), and these are great!
