Jemima Jones and the Revolving Door of Doom
Really, I just want to write books that offer quality entertainment and escapism. I unapologetically value absorbing story over literary style, and would much rather have readers than prizes. Your experience in the publishing industry. My views on my book, the covers and even contracts are taken into consideration, and I have a fabulous editor who is very encouraging.
Writing schedule and positive habits. I write and I work in my therapy practice on alternate days and in completely different physical and head-spaces. I am at my most productive in the morning, especially if I can have the house to myself. I like to write in silence, but Nanowrimo has taught me not to be so precious and now I can, if I have to, write with background noise.

The third in the series, Fault Lines , comes out in April Protea Boekhuis also published my adult psychological thriller, Dark Whispers in , and its Afrikaans translation, Skadustemme , in My most recent book is a Young Adult contemporary romance, Scarred , which I indie-published. Why did you become a writer? But I started writing books and submitting them for publication for two main reasons: I wanted to contribute local books for teens with kickass female protagonists to the offering of YA books at our book shops, and I wanted to start a parallel career to offset creeping burnout in my day job as a psychologist.
I wrote and won Nano in and , using it both times to finish manuscripts I had already started. My manuscript was subsequently published as Rock Steady.
What happens after Nano? This time around — more writing, until I finish the story! Usually, I leave the manuscript for a few months and then come back with fresh eyes to rewrite and edit, and rewrite and edit some more, before starting the submissions or publication process.

Also, the regional write-ins are fun, motivating and very productive. I encourage everyone to give it a full go. I think YA is my favourite — it has a cracking pace, emotional punch and some of the raw honesty and social militance that precedes the lazy cynicism of adulthood. I tend to say different things with my different books. That pleases me, because I think I hope! If not a writer what would you be doing? I currently work as a writer, a psychologist and a trainer.
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,word novel by PM on November I'm Cat Hellisen and I've been failing nanowrimo for about as long as it's been around. I don't consider this a bad thing. I'm a fantasy writer and I work in both long and short formats.
Complete inability to hold down a real job means I had to pretend to be doing something with my time. You call it watching Supernatural.
I call it research. An understanding that the path is long, rocky, and rutted with failure. You need to keep going despite that. I began writing well over a decade ago, but it was only in I think, it's all pretty hazy that I sold my first book.
Even though I began writing short stories long before I tackled novels, it's only more recently that I've started making any headway with sales there. What works have you produced?
