This Is Week 3 of the 2018 Marketing for romance Writers Blog Challenge. The topic is How Much Of Myself Is In my Writing.
Finally an easy or a least for me, topic. The answer is a lot! Each of my stories has some aspect of my life. I probably over share in my stories. Wo’s gonna know right? In each of my stories, i may have one line, a look, my clothes, a pet, my home a favorite object, a hobby you name it. I feel it enriches the characters.
In this story I am working on now, My Dome home is featured. The entire story is based on an epic event in my life– The Ice storm of 2009.
I live in a very small mid-south town where though we get snow and even some sleet we have not had such a devastating ice storm. No one was ready. Ice downed trees and power lines. We were without water at the least of three days and power a week for the lucky of us months for others. I feature my dome home and my husband’s woodworking. I stepped out on my porch for some reason I don’t remember and a tree branch snapped nearly missing my head knocking me to the porch. It bruised my shoulder badly. This is where the facts end and fiction takes over. I made this an MM romance and hope to tell you more in the future.
In one of my stories, I talk about my grandfather’s old farm, One I use the way I dress in hippie cloths and my crafting. No matter how much or little I add there is something. Keep watching my blogs, Facebook page especially follow in my group Cat’s romance-A_Holics because some day ill be asking trivia for prizes.
