#RRBC Rave Reviews Book Club Author’s Spotlight Tour – Helen Treharne | Fiction Favorites

My name is Helen Treharne and I’m a seat-of-your-pants writer. I never suffer from writer’s block. I never have a shortage of ideas. I can happily switch on my computer and just type.

That’s a good thing… right?

The wealth of ideas and ability to soak up inspiration like a sponge is marvellous. I am grateful for this. But it also has a downside. I can have far too many ideas to do anything meaningful with any of them. I can write so furiously that when I do stop, it’s a grinding halt because I’ve realised some awful plot problem… or even worse, I want to rewrite everything I’ve already written as this new super idea is the best freaking’ thing ever and I MUST include it in my story now.

Sound familiar? There are lots of us out there- happy, productive writers, who produce reams of work and then spend endless amounts of time editing and rewriting.

This is my default behaviour, but I’m finally beating it. I now like to think of myself as by recovering fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants writer. I wonder if we should form some sort of association and have meetings. It’s useful to have a way of frequently reminding yourself of the perils of poor planning.

I don’t advocate a one size fits all approach to%2
