I always like to entertain, first of all, and if the readers take anything away from it that helps them with their own lives, well then, that is a bonus.

Although when I start a novel I know how it will begin and end, I like to let the people within the story take me on a journey between those points without having a fixed plan.

I always take a story that’s kind of out there, like an urban myth. I take some possibility that people imagine, that they are familiar with, and try to turn it into a story.

  1. I like the second one because that’s the way it usually is for me – I know the beginning and the end, it’s just the middle that’s a little murky.

  2. I like the middle quote, letting the story tell itself…I always dream of writing…come up with so many ideas it’s hard to settle down and choose one and begin.

  3. Hi Karen. Love the quotes. I sent you an email but haven’t heard back. It’s about Naked Alliances. You helped me out by beta reading and I’d like to get you a copy of the completed product.

    • Thank you for the praise, Sue.
      I apologise for not getting back to you earlier. I wasn’t feeling too well – therefore I still have a lot of catching up to do. I gladly accept a copy, of course. 😌

  4. I like #3, because it is exactly what Cecilia’s books are about. She knows how to make a good story from simple and familiar things 🙂 . Love her books.

  5. This one is exactly how I like to work. “Although when I start a novel, I know how it will begin and end, I like to let the people within the story take me on a journey between those points without having a fixed plan.” Sometimes the ending is also in question given what came up in the middle.

    • Excellent choice and way of working, John. If the original ending does not completely fit, slightest modifications nearly always do the trick.
