Any eagle-eyed readers, may have noticed a new page beneath Who, me? called Blogging Schedule. I am looking to continue with consistency on this blog and have a specific schedule for what posts appear on what days.
Firstly, big thanks to everyone who listened to my audio interview in last Friday’s post and gave their support. It was truly appreciated and has removed some of the terror from such activities.
Anyway, onto today’s topic:
This week’s guest poster is the lovely Tavera Del Toro, author of Revenge Chair. Here Tavera discusses the creative process. Enjoy!
The creative process or my lunacy
by Tavera Del Toro
When I tell people I write novels, they often ask me where in the world do I get my ideas, which after a few general answers, I usually just say, “I don’t know, it just flashes into my head”. To be honest, that’s a half truth.
Like any art or endeavor, one can’t just perch down at your desk and inform your brain, “Okay, brain tell me a story!”
This week’s guest post is an interview with the wonderful Khaled Talib, author of Incognito. Enjoy!
This week’s guest poster is author Viv Drewa, the Owl Lady. Check out her answers to these interview questions 🙂

Q01 – When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?
When I was 9-years-old I read a book that made me want to be a writer. It was “The Whistling Sword” by James Robert Green. I was so impressed by how he used true people in fiction. I bought the book from a library that closed just to have it.
As I am still struggling with some things I haven’t been able to get myself sorted with a proper blog post. However I did want to get back to a schedule of Friday posting.
So I thought I would share with you some of my favourite memes and quotes that are either about writers or at least could be 🙂
If you have any great quotes, please share them in the comments. I would love to hear from you. Have you any specific quotes that have been inspirational to you during the writing process?
Do pop back on Tuesday for our next Guest Poster 🙂
About Ari Meghlen
I’ve been a writer since I was given unsupervised access to pens and can’t write anything shorter than a trilogy. I live in the greener part of the UK with my awesome boyfriend, 3 mad cats and 1 overly-confident budgie. I spend my time lost in imaginary worlds, making jewellery, taking nature photos or watching bad movies. Connect with me on: Facebook or on my Website or just leave me a comment on this blog. I love comments
Today we welcome back to this blog the wonderful Pearl R Meaker, author of the Emory Crawford Mysteries. Enjoy!
“Love, twue love.”
by Pearl R Meaker
Today is the “love holiday” and, like the movie “The Princess Bride” from which I borrowed my title, most stories have love in them somewhere along the way.
It might be love done well, or love gone wrong. Maybe love long lost and mourned, or love that is being newly sought. It can even be all of the above and more.
It may even be the self-love of the narcissist or someone who is in love with money or some other inanimate object.
Love is usually in there somewhere if only because love is in most of us. We can relate to love.
But what do you, as a writer, intend to do with love? The answer to that depends on the sort of book you’re writing, your characters and you.
Today I’m going to talk about the Three P’s of writing…and no, they aren’t Pancakes, PJs and Procrastination (totally should be though, right?).
Being ill made me fall far behind in a lot of things; work, my online shop, my degree, my writing… so I have had to work overtime, cram in extra study-time and work longer to complete orders. Things are starting to settle back into more of a routine. So with this, I have taken stock.
