writer who cooks, cook who writes
Once upon a time there was a food blogger who had a nagging passion to be a fiction writer. The end.
who am i?
i'm a foodie who loves to write.
My life is a well-seasoned blend of writing, reading, cooking, and eating.
Writing a story is like developing a recipe. You have an idea of what you want to make (storyline). The starting point is imagining how it will taste when it's done (a cast of characters has to do something). Ingredient line up - mise en place (plot points develop). A cooking technique and method is applied (story structure). Close your eyes, breathe in the aromas wafting through the room...season... taste...adjust....plate it...lift a fork to your lips ...savor your creation (sharpen pencil, make a cuppa, ask what if a hundred times, put character in peril, rescue character).
