Writing Process Blog Hop 14


Today I am doing a writing process blog hop.   I would like to thank Rayanna Jamison for nominating me! Rayanna writes domestic discipline books and has her first book, Bride Two Soon coming out on April 30th!!  Fortunately, she asked me to beta read this book, which is a polygamy domestic discipline book that is very romantic.  You are all in for a treat

Now, I get to tell you a little bit about myself as a writer and a little bit about what I am working on.

1) What am I currently working on?

I am currently working on three things:  the final edits for my first book tentatively called What a Girl Wants, which I am hoping will be released in the next 2-3 weeks.  This is an Age Play book with two married couples who all work together and are good friends.  The girls, Meggie and Molly, agreed to domestic discipline and love being Littles, but struggle with the discipline and rules their Daddies strictly enforce!

Second, I am working on another book which is a domestic discipline and therapeutic spanking story in which the main character is cutting and the EMT, who responded to the 911 call, falls in love with her and helps her overcome cutting with domestic discipline!

And, third, I am writing another AP book involving Meggie and Molly.  

2) How does my work differ from others of it’s genre? 

I have read Age Play for years and have loved all the books.  I am not actually sure mine differs from others in this genre.  I have kept with the elements of a good age play story–women who love to dress as little girls, play with dolls and crayons, get into mischief; and daddies who love to cuddle, wash, feed, care for and discipline their women/little girls.  If there is any difference, I tried to reinforce that these women are sassy, out-going, independent, and professional, career women who not only agreed to domestic discipline as little girls but they also crave the love, security and cuddling from a daddy.  Both Meggie and Molly didn’t have a daddy when they were little but each receives what they need/want in the Daddy/little girl dynamic.

3) Why do I write what I do? 

As I have stated previously, I have been reading spanking fiction for years.  I did not anticipate writing age play.  I was sitting down to write a sexy story for Natasha Knight, just something to make her smile.  To my surprise, and probably hers, she loved it.  From there she encouraged me to add 10,000 words and helped me with the process of getting it to a publisher.  Age play just rolls out of my fingers, it is very natural and easy.  

As for the other story, I have worked in the psychiatric or psychology field for many years, so I am fascinated with how the mind works, behavior modification,  and of course, anything to do with spanking.

4) How does my writing process work?

I don’t really have a writing process.  I get an idea, I mull it over and get a general idea of what I want the book to be, and I just start typing.  The story and characters just take me away and I get to watch it evolve. I think the thing that amazes me most:  is how these ideas and scenes and discipline sessions just “pop” out of me.  I don’t know where they were, don’t know how they came out, but it hits the computer and I am amazed and some days appalled.  LOL.  As I stated earlier, age play seems to flow out of me.  I do all my writing on a laptop. When I wrote my first book, I wrote 10,000 in the first day and had the MS done in five days.  I type in my living room with my two chihuahuas next to me, watching TV and in the middle of the family chaos after working eight hours at my day job.

We are suppose to nominate two authors, but I was fortunate enough to get three!!  I am nominating Felicity Nichols of Mad in Wonderland Reviews, Bryce Bryce  and Etta Stark. Please check out their blogs on April 21st to read about their writing process!

    You wrote 10K in one day? Wow, you are on fire! Congrats on the upcoming publication. I love that you are amazed and sometimes appalled by what comes out of you. That part made me laugh. Sometimes I blush when I am reading over something I wrote, I thought it was just me…

  • Ruth Staunton

    I can't wait for your book(s). I have an ageplay and DD mix to my own interest too so I love anything that deals with it. Ditto on the psychology one. That's another fascination of mine.

  • LA Cloutier

    10K, WOW! I'm happy with 2500 and on a very good day I sometimes surprise myself with more.
    You seem to enjoy being a panster and letting the story unfold before your eyes, me too.
    It's neat to see how other authors put their words together during the process of writing, editing and finally publication.
    Looking forward to your first publication, Megan. Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself. 🙂

  • Natasha Knight

    I think the words kind of explode out of your mouth (or your fingertips) at first and it's so cool to see what happens! I can't wait to see what the finished product will look like.

    Amazed and appalled…I'm pretty sure that never goes away…but it's so much fun to do.

  • Etta Stark

    Also impressed by your 10,000 words in a day! I don't know how you manage to write while watching TV. If there's a telly on in the room, I get drawn into it, it doesn't matter what it is. I end up having to watch the end of "Don't tell the Bride" or something because my daughter had it on and I need to know how it pans out for everybody. Consequently, I don't watch much television at all.

      I have a TON of AD/HD so I seem to do best in chaos and stress. I focus better and am more productive. When I learned court stenography/reporting, I would do Court TV in the middle of the kitchen with high schoolers running around with their friends. And, I definitely stop writing and *gasp* while watching Blacklist and Dallas!! But let me add, I love when it is quiet and no TV. That is the ideal way to write, my life just doesn't always allow it!

  • Grant Antrews

    I do look forward to reading your stories. I love the DD, and find the ageplay fascinating. I can't believe you can write so much at one sitting! I sometimes struggle to do a page, and other times it flows. Then I become amazed, and sometimes appalled, but I just smile and go forward. Once a person accepts that they are kinky, it seems to free you from being appalled. But amazed? I do often amaze myself! Thanks Megan. I enjoy your posts.

    • Megan Michaels

      I have enjoyed kink for a while, just didn't realize that I could write it. I always assumed as a reader, that the scenes written in books were based on experience, past or present, and things heard or read. I didn't realize that they could just "pop out" of nowhere! I am enjoying being amazed and appalled.

  • katherinedeane

    Wow, 10K in a day! That's fantastic!
    So, do you think that makes you a pantser?
    I'm still not sure what I am. My brain likes to keep me on my toes, so I am doing a bit of both. hehe

    Congrats, and thanks for sharing.
    🙂

    I write best in 'chaos' too, although my chaos is a crowded, bustling coffee shop at lunchtime in the middle of the financial district. It gives me inspiration 🙂 Great post, Megan and I will be updating my blog tomorrow!
