Joshua Paul Cane introduced me to the My Writing Process series, a blog tour of authors’ caffeine-addled musings on their neurotic lives. It’s gonna be fun! Each author answers four questions:
1) What am I working on?
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
3) Why do I write what I do?
4) How does my writing process work?
Check out Josh’s answers at his website. He’s the author of Shadows, a kickass vampire story that sucks only in the right ways. His description of Shadows is a bit more eloquent.
Shadows returns to the roots of the vampire genre and branches out in its own direction. Vampires are silhouettes of humanity, dark twins that exaggerate our virtues and vices; they are ever present, but seldom seen. Bloodless, they instead possess a black humor that collects in their stilled hearts. Vampires choose their existence, seeing it as a gift, rather than a curse. What is the price of immortality? What do you do with forever? What makes us human?
My answers will be up next Monday. I suppose I should still be working on them, but I tried and am now crippled by procrastination. Ah, the life of a writer. I love every terrified, neurotic, addled, soul-crushing moment. It makes every day a good day.
