2014 Writing Process Blog Hop

When Morgan Dragonwillow asked me to be a part of the 2014-writing-process-blog-hop, I have to admit I was a little nervous.  I am still new to the writing and blogging world, but I decided to take on the challenge and write from the heart. 

Most of the bloggers throughout this blog hop have been writing for some time and no matter what blog you land on you are sure to find some nugget of truth that will help you along your writing journey. 

If you have ever been to Morgan Dragonwillow’s blog, you know that there is always some profound poetry or writing tip that will be sure to inspire or expand your writing style.  Morgan is the author of two transformational poetry books and Wild Woman Waking is just that, transformation in motion and will inspire deep thought. 

Morgan Dragonwillow’s newest book Wild Woman Waking is making its way to the top and can be found on 

Here are my answers to the questions that many authors have already answered. 

1) What am I working on currently or just finishing?

I am currently working on writing a transformational book about my struggle with coming out and religion.  A book that I hope will impact the lives of other women struggling to be themselves in a world that fights against diversity and change. 

2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I am writing about my struggle with breaking out of my station in the bible belt, coming out as a gay woman and walking away from the religion of my upbringing.  This book seeks to inspire and give the reader steps to improving their lives.  This book is a healing Coming out story from the prespective of the whole person, and the impact that religion plays in the ability of people to be who they were born to be.

3) Why do I write what I do?

I write what I do because the world is not a safe place, but I want to believe there are still good people in the world.  Impacting the lives of others struggling and letting them know it does get better; the world needs people to be authentic and that is the reason I am writing my story.   

4) How does my writing process work?

After I have my coffee, I open my notebook, pull a card and write on that subject.  I am still new to writing and blogging, so my process is still a work in progress.  I put on smooth jazz mister Magic by Grover Washington and it allows me to let go and just write.  I need background noise that allows me to let go of other thoughts and just write.
