What's your process?
Usually I'm not a big stickler about keeping the same writing process for all my books. Some of them I write my blurb and come up with a title ahead of time. With other books I just start writing and come up with the rest of it later. It works for me. Depending on the book or if its part of a series I tend to start it in a different way.
As I mentioned last week I've started working on more than one project. I have my current novella and a YA that I'm dabbling with at the same time. My novella WIP is dwindling down so I'm prepping to start work on the third Malone brother book but for some reason, I can't figure out a title. Like I said, this usually wouldn't be a big deal for me, but for some reason, with this book it is. I'm wracking my brain for a title and getting nothing, but its stalling my getting started with it as well. For some reason I can't start this without a title. Not sure if it's because with the two first Malone brothers I knew my title before hand so my muse is fighting me to do the same with this story or if my mind is just telling me to finish my WIP before I put any work into Shane Malone. I'm thinking this brother might just call for my undivided attention ;).
Is your writing process the same for each book or do you switch it up?
