People ask how I come up with my characters.
I love a good unreliable narrator. I know, I’m weird that way. My classmates way back in high school made that perfectly clear.
For me, writing is my break. Most of the time, anyway. I retreat from pretty much everything else that I have to do into my writing. The stories are where I make the world make sense.
I’m a pantser when it comes to writing my stories. That is I just write them and figure out all the plot points and such after the fact. This works fairly well for me as my subconscious is much better at storytelling than my conscious mind.
