Here we go again y’all! It’s day three of our awesome Author Interview series where we are getting to know a little bit more about debut author Beth Merlin. #woohoo
Let’s get to it!
INKY: What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
BETH: Like most writers, overcoming any sort of block is always challenging. Sometimes I’ll have a general sense of where I want to go but get stuck in the weeds of trying to push the story in a particular direction. I’m not the kind of writer who does a tremendous amount of outlining, I like my stories to feel more organic.
I’ve learned that type of approach can come with big rewards but also some really big risks. I’ve definitely gone down a path only to scrap the idea (and all those pages!) when things didn’t come together in the way I wanted. However, on the flip side, I’ve had some really great twists and turns come to me in the middle of the writing process that I never could have planned for, but they were moments that grew out of some character development or something in my real life that fit in well with the new material.
