Writing Process

Hello my freaky ones-

today I turn my blog over to my writer Angel Edenburn (aka Gena Mantz). The amazing writing duo of C L Raven (check them out at  http://clraven.wordpress.com/) tagged her to participate in this blog hop. (Personally, I think it is wonderful!) And my writer has tagged SK Yule to continue this fun next week! I can’t wait to read that one… so here she is- my writer Angel Edenburn. Check her out


Hi all.

CL Raven( http://clraven.wordpress.com/) asked me to participate in this blog hop. Don’t judge me too harshly. CL gave me four questions- 1 What am I working on?  I am working on several projects at once. I have a novel with three of my characters nearly finished to send to Amos and Cassidy, I have the story of my character, Isis, and her family. (Thankfully, Isis agreed to let me use her page as well as mine http://angeledenburn.wordpress.com/  for this. I also have a werewolf novel I started almost 2 years ago, as well as one other short story in the works.

2 How does my work differ from others of this genre? I am not sure EXACTLY which genre I am. I have some action, some paranormal, some romance, a LOT of touchy/feely stuff, as well as character growth in my stuff. I want my non-stereotypical heroines to be themselves, not fit into a mold. My gals are a little more voluptuous, a little older, and not perfect. My mcs are NOT nubile, barely legal, size 2 girls.

3 Why do I write what I do? Well this is a multi-part answer. It feels right for me to write this. I write what I want to read and what I want my nieces and nephews to see and learn from. I don’t like some of what is out there that shows girls/women as very co-dependent. I want to show them something different and a better way to be. (BTDT co-dependent thing.) Also, when I sit down at the computer, this is what falls out. I love to write short stories as well as novels.

4 How does my writing process work? Right now, it is whenever I can squeeze it in. I write and edit almost anywhere. If I am riding in a car, at mealtime at work, when I’m mowing the lawn (I write in my head), or when I sit down at the computer. I plot when I do chores, I edit when I hit writer’s block, and the rest of the time I write. I have Scapple and Scrivener and use Scapple and lots of scribbled notes on pieces of paper to help  keep my ideas sort of organized. I get stuck, I just jump to another WIP until something breaks loose. Then, I jump back and keep going.

Okay, so next week is going to be the sensuous SK Yule, writer extrordinaire of the paranormal, and multi-published author.  Check out her stuff here  http://skyule.com/.

until next time,




Angel Edenburn (Gena Mantz)

  1. great answers! Thanks for agreeing to take part 🙂 Writing what you want to read is the best way to go about writing. Popular trends change so often that trying to write for a market usually means that market will be dead by the time that book is published. It’s great your characters are so different. We like characters who aren’t the unrealistic model types – who looks like that really? And we’re sick of heroines who are co-dependent on men – where are their feminist streaks? So your characters are a refreshing change. Keep them coming!
