Writing The Story – Ravaged Land Series

Recently, I was thinking about the way I write my novels, specifically The Ravaged Land Series.  When I had to write an ending to one of my books, I knew it wasn’t going to be a popular ending.  In fact, I tried to write it another way, but it just didn’t work.

I realized I couldn’t write it any other way because it wasn’t Ros’ story.  I was trying to change her story and she wouldn’t let me.

It’s hard because I love my characters.  I mean, I feel like after all the time I’ve spent with them (I started writing Ravaged Land in November 2014!) I know them.  That may seem silly but it’s true.  In a way, I hope my readers feel the same.

When bad stuff happens I cry.  I know it’s tough out there for them, but honestly if the world was destroyed, it would be tough.  Things wouldn’t work out.  And if everything did, there wouldn’t be a story to tell.

A little insight into my writing process.  My characters tell me the story and then I write it down.  🙂
