I've been writing Blood Rivalry for about 3 years. It's been a start and stop process. Since having 2 kids, my life is quite busy. I started it while my husband was working on his master's thesis. I had a lot of time on my hands when the kids had gone to bed because he was busy.
It's been a fantastic journey so far. I find that as I write the characters really have begun to take to take on a life of their own. They are constantly "talking" to me throughout the day and I can't wait until I can get the time to write at night.
Recently, I decided that I needed to chronicle the whole writing process. Because this is my first novel, I am learning a lot as I go. I never have been much of a journal writer, but for some strange reason I feel the need to keep a log of the process. Hopefully it will prove to be an interesting read!
