Okay, I know I haven’t been very chatty lately. I’ve been busy doing things like writing, house-hunting and…oh yeah, getting married!!! I promise I’ll write more about that in the near future. But what brought me back today is friend and fellow New York Times bestselling author (still love saying that) Alina Adams. She’s launched a really interesting writing project that seems to be part exhibitionism, part performance art and part lunacy. You see she’s writing a romance novel filled with drama, secrets, double-crosses, revenge, scheming, schemers and sex. So far this is my kind of book. Note I did not say it sounds like it’s going to be my kind of book. I said so far it is my kind of book. I can say that definitively because I’ve read part of it. And no, she didn’t send me the first few chapters. She didn’t have to because she’s writing it online, as in anyone who clicks this link can actually see her while she’s typing this thing. We can see her typos, we can see her delete, we can see her going back and rewriting sections or taking out entire passages all together. We can even give her advice in regards to what we think she should be writing and what’s good and bad about the sentence she’s writing as she’s writing it.
Personally I’d rather play Twister with Attila the Hun on a bed of hot coals than invite the world to judge me as I struggle through sentence after sentence. Therefore when I found out Alina was doing this I had to know what on earth was going through her head. That burning question lead to this interview. Hope you find it as interesting as I do!:
