Writing blog By Sylvia Stein

I was recently asked by Author and friend Emerald Barnes to answer the following 


What are you working on?

I am working on my Nano novel Clarity now that Closure is out. 

How does your work differ from others of its genre?
Well my work differs from others because I try to focus on characters that needed to find some type of resolve and go through some type of transformation as they go through their journey.

For example my novella Closure talks about abuse and it tells the story of a young girl who loses her mother to cancer and then her father becomes an alcoholic and makes her life unbearable and it is about a journey for both of them.  
Then Clarity was inspired when in last year in July 2013 I woke up to the news that a beloved character from one of my favorite show Glee had passed on. 

I then began this story in November for Nano and created Mia Gerard who has lost her fiancée Leo Dancy and begins to try and rebuild her life by leaving her hometown of Michigan and moving to New York.  It is here where she encounters Henry Watson a British Artist who falls for her immediately and she fights those feelings because she is not ready to move on.

Why do you write what you?

I love Writing and this has and will always be my passion.  I love creating stories and characters that readers will love.

How does your writing process work?

My writing process begins in the late evenings and in the daytime in the weekends.   I usually write in my composition book and then I write an outline and then begin typing my draft.  I always play music usually movie scores and classical music. 

Thank you for tagging me Emerald Barnes I loved being a part of it.
