How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
The best way for me is to just keep writing. And review my outlines. I like to write with not just an idea but an outline. If I get stuck or I start to worry (which can be on a daily basis!), I will look at my outline, remind myself of the story, then just write through it.
What scares you the most?
Running out of ideas or hitting a wall so hard, it hurts… meaning the dreaded writers block.
What makes you happiest? When people I don’t know email me, Facebook me, Tweet me, and tell me how great my books are. The best was just last week when a couple people were talking via Facebook about Brothers of Rock (written as Karolyn James) on their own timelines…
Have you always enjoyed writing?
YES! Whether it was school mandated reports, college reports, or writing my own books, I’ve always loved writing. Yes, I was the geeky person in school who loved writing English papers.
What motivates you to write?
My readers! They’re always hungry for the next book and it’s my job to write it.
What writing are you most proud of?
Right now it’s my western romance series (the Mail Order Romance novels). I had those books hidden for a while and I finally found the courage to put them out. As of me typing this, the first book is #1 in Westerns in the entire Kindle store! I’m already working at the third book in the series.
