Hi, Karen Millett. Welcome to the Indie Publishing Group website! Introduce yourself to us. Tell everyone who you are, where you’re from, what you enjoy doing, and your hobbies and interests.
Introduce yourself to us.
Hi, my name is Karen Millett. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I love to read. I love my cat, and I collect cats, unicorns, and My Little Ponies. I’ve been reading since I was able to. I love my books.
I started writing in high school when I had a lot of free time and classes. I started writing fanfic then when I took a writing course, I started to write my own stories. I couldn’t get published except for a couple of poems, so I left it for a long time.
When I was laid off because of the pandemic, I started reading a lot then an idea started working around in my head. I started writing it all down, though not in a straight line, then working from to beginning, I filled out the middle. I kept working on it with the help of a beta reader. I filled in plot holes and gaps and even created a character to fix a lot of holes that I couldn’t find a way to fix.
Then, I finally decided it was time to get it published.
Have you got anything you’re working on now?
The Strong Man Survives is the only book I have written so far. It’s my favorite. It’s my baby.
I don’t know what gave me the idea for it. Sometimes, when I go to bed and get ready to sleep, I play little ideas in my mind, like you were watching a movie but with my own characters and plot. This idea came to me, and it didn’t want to seem to leave my brain, so I just ran with it.
What’s your writing process?
I have no system whatsoever, I don’t think I do anyway.
Something comes to mind, I work on it in my head until I can get a chance to jot it down. I have an app on my phone that’s great for that, I can send my notes to my email.
Sometimes after work, in the evening, or even days off, I just wander into my rec room and jot out whatever happens to be floating around in there while I’m watching videos. I go as far as I can with a scene, stick it in my folder then work on something else. Eventually, it will start falling into place, and I can get it into a sequence.
