My Writing Process

My friend Jess of Gluten Free Boston Girl recently asked me to participate in the "My Writing Process" blog tour, so today I'm pretending to be a writer (and not just someone who makes lists) and answering some questions.

1) What are you working on right now?

Self-control, mostly.

I'm also "working on" a book and by that I mean I think about it a lot and occasionally write some things down in the Notepad app on my iPhone when I'm feeling inspired (read: distracted from what I am supposed to be doing).  So far, I've come up with a title and a potential book cover and a list of the stories I want to tell.  I'm still working on that whole writing part.

You might be wondering what this "book" is about. No no, not cats. Though, I have considered putting in a photo insert of Boo or including a complementary cat calendar along with every purchase.  What it will be about is my dating experiences, mainly the weird ones, so basically all of them. Maybe you'll be in it!

2) How does your work differ from others of its genre?

Good question... I don't think I'm actually in a genre, so that's probably how it differs. Also, I don't write about running or blending all of my food, which definitely sets me apart from 99% of the internet. But then again, cats, so.

 3) Why do you write what you do?

I write because I love myself more than anyone else, and feel that everything I think, say, and do is worthy of being shared with the masses.

4) How does your writing process work?

Like everything in my life, my writing "process" is impulsive and disorganized.  I write when I think of something to write about, immediately and fervently and usually in an email which I will later send to myself, or on the aforementioned notepad app. I also tend to try my jokes out on people before I post them. I think my most golden moments have happened on Gchat.  On that note, would anyone read (aka buy) a book of just g-chat conversations?


Next week, a few of my best blogging friends will be sharing their writing process with you. If you are not already reading their blogs, you must start immediately.

Katie Levans is my go-to when I have questions about litter boxes or dietary concerns. One time she sent me cookie butter in the mail. We have a lot in common, including but not limited to cats, dessert, and Beyonce. I feel like we would be best friends in real life unless she wanted me to do yoga with her.

Katie Ett is a food blogger, photographer, and romance novelist. The last part is not true, but ask her to describe a first date and you'll be surprised at how arousing holding hands with someone sounds. Katie is living the food-life I've always dreamed of. She is my guide to hot restaurants and hot men in NYC.

I know you've been wondering how I got THIS BODY, and the answer is Rob. (Also cheese fries. It's all about balance, you guys!) Rob is my former personal trainer and a new blogger. He focuses on actual health and fitness rather than just burning cals. I like that about him.

Keep an eye out for their upcoming posts. In the meantime, what is your writing process?


  1. "I write because i love myself more than anyone else"! YES

  2. Well, the good thing is that you made me feel better about working on nothing and have no process. Former writers turned other things–unite!


I would love to hear your comments unless you're an international spammer. Sorry.
