This week I have my online buddy and someone else who, like me, has her debut novel releasing in 2014: Jamie Wesley
This is my writing space. The desk is pretty sparse because until a few weeks ago my writing space was my couch (or a nearby branch of the city library). I didn’t have a desk chair, so I didn’t use the desk.
Yes, that’s a remote on the desk. That’s because my writing space is in my living room. There’s a TV in the background. I do have and use my office, but I like being in the living room.
I rely heavily on three books when plotting a book. I just started a new book, so they were on my desk before I took the photos. :-) 45 Master Characters and Heroes & Heroines are great for developing my characters. I have a general sense of who the characters are before I open the craft books, but the books help flesh the characters out for me. Save the Cat is great for plotting. The structure the author advocates is simple, but highly effective.
Bio: Jamie Wesley has been reading romance novels since she was about 12 when her mother left a romance novel, which a friend had given her, on the nightstand. Jamie read it instead, and the rest is history. Her first book, Tell Me Something Good, will be published by Entangled Indulgence in 2014.
