Writing Process Blog Hop!


+Teagan Kearney  has tagged me to participate in my first blog hop! 

Thanks so much Teagan! I appreciate the honor!
Teagan is an author and blogger that shares her writing journey in inspiring and creative ways. Every time I read her blog posts, I find myself tapping away with an idea to improve my writing. Teagan's first novel An Unstill Life, falls under the commercial women’s fiction banner. Her Work In Progress (WIP) is a trilogy. She is developing characters and plot for the second novel in the series.

You can find Teagan's blog here:

3.) Answer the four questions below:

What are you working on?

I always work on something each day. I work on poems daily. Several articles, book and movie reviews fill folders that are waiting for me finish. I have several short stories that are mostly completed. And a few that I have general ideas about. The characters are banging on the closet door for release. Mainly, I have been focusing on poems.

How does your work differ from others in the genre?

Well, I try to write poems on diverse topics: Love and romance, friendship, emotions, poetry and the seasons, to name a few. I guess you could call my poems free verseI try to experiment with structure, style and type of poems. Much of my poetry rhymes and is set in stanzas. I write a lot of micropoetry as I comment on my G+ friend's posts.

Why do you write what you write?

A year or so ago, when I started blogging, I set out to write short stories and articles. But I found that I really enjoyed writing poetry. I discovered that some seemed to enjoy my poetry, so at their encouragement, I continue writing poems. I enjoy words and communicating ideas through words. I love the response and interactions that results from words.

How does your writing process work?  

I get inspiration for stories from comments people make (on G+ or real life). Movies, songs and stories inspire me. Many times, when I wake a story or poem will begin to run through my head. The story A Blue Mime's Story on my Hubpages site came to me in a dream. The first stanza of the poem I wrote yesterday, two-step, came to me as I was waking.

I try to spend at least an hour a day working on poems that I have partly written or start new ones. I read as many poems a day as I can. I read about school's of poetry and read the poets from the schools. I discovered that my poetry is akin to the philosophy of Imagist poets. (You will have to look it up!)

Recently, I haven't had as much time to write as used to but I still try to make it priority to work on something daily!

Thanks again to Teagan and I hope you enjoy the bloggers work that I have shared in this Blog Hop!
