AMA: Taking Questions

I'll be taking questions for the next couple of weeks about anything: upcoming projects, my newest book, or any other topics. 

To submit a question, just post it in the comments of below! I'll also post the Q&A in a blog post linked to the video, so there will be multiple ways to see the answers!

You can ask me anything about the projects that I'm working on as well as upcoming projects that are due out later in the year.


Question:

Can you describe your typical writing routine? And when editing, do you use professional or an editing program?

Answer:

I use a professional editor for all of my books because I don't really have time to try and self-edit them all. It just takes too long and I still miss a lot of things. In general, it's been very helpful for me.

I also use grammarly for general writing tasks and to help with simple things, because it does a great job of cleaning up little problems.

My writing routine...

I don't really have one. I write when I can, and when I get in the middle of a project i usually try to push through to the end and then work through a second and third draft. The first draft is the hardest for me to finish, but by the third or fourth I'm usually quite happy with the way things are going.

When I finish a project I usually take a few weeks off before doing anything, because it takes a while to reset. When I start back into something new it's more or less just because I have ideas and I want to get them on paper!
