I do have a question! Since you posted about a song in the beginning of this post, I’m interested in whether you ever multi-task while writing? What is your process? I usually listen to White Noise when I’m writing. Is it different for you? Maybe you listen to music, or nothing?
Admittedly, I’m a bit of a scatterbrain. If you ever meet me in person, I come off as somewhat stoic and calm… or so I’m told, but the truth is while I’m sitting there listening to you talk, my mind is actually processing about a hundred different pieces of information at the same time. These include questions that I want to answer, things I have to do for work, fleshing out story lines, brainstorming new story ideas, wondering what’s going on with my family, and the list goes on.
All right… now because my mind is going a mile a minute, usually I’ve got a bunch of things going on at once on my computer screen. I’ll have my favorite news programs on either on one screen or on the TV, music playing on YouTube, I’ll be doing some work, typing out another section of my story, paying bills or filling out paperwork that needs to be completed, as well as detailing anything else I have to do during the day. Believe it or not, I’m actually the most comfortable with that level of ‘chaos’ in my life. If it’s too quiet, I’m usually ready to freak out. I don’t like uncomfortable silences.
There’s no real process other than that. I write when I’m comfortable and I typically have a ton of other things going on as well. Hope that answers your question!
Do you have a question about writing, publishing, my stories, etc? Please feel free to post a comment or email me.
I’ll use those comments to select my next blog post.
I have been writing for several years, have 4 published works, experience with publishing and independent work, so I can hopefully be of assistance.
Please note, I only do one of these a day and will do my best to respond to everyone, but it may take some time.
Also, feel free to check out my works of Fantasy and Historical Fiction, Available on Amazon and where ever books are sold. See the link below:
If you have read my books, PLEASE log into Amazon and post a review. I really love to hear everyone’s thoughts and constructive criticisms. Reviews help get my book attention and word of mouth is everything in this business!
Catch you on the flip side!
