How to get into writing mode
I don’t know that there is an easy answer for this. I think for each one of us it’s something different, me it’s just anywhere I have music without a doubt. With that said, I have been at work flying back to base from dropping a patient off and have pulled out a notepad and written a few chapters too. For me it’s just when it hits. I’ve found if I try to force myself to write, it’s obvious I wasn’t feeling it.
For most (or so I’m told) a quiet room with no distractions is what is needed. My life inspires me, the simplest thing. Today as I drove home, I passed by the same open field I pass by all the time. Today it made me think of a scene for a book I’m currently working on.
Back to my original statement you have to find what lets you relax and your imagination flow and for each of us that is different.
Angee was born in Houston, Texas in 1977, to an interesting family. Her mother and father separated
when she was young. She lived with her mother who later remarried a wonderful man, who had a huge
impact on her as she grew up. Angee has always had a love of reading, mostly paranormal. As a child,
she would sneak up at late night when her mom thought she was sleeping, to read. They moved around
a lot, eventually settling in Deep East Texas. Angee married at a young age and eventually divorced. She
has raised her now 16 year old son alone. Angee works full time as a pre-hospital nurse and sometimes
sees things that would make the rest of us have nightmares. On other days, she is blessed to see
miracles. These things are what drive her to write.
In 2006, she was diagnosed with a rare disease, shortly after that she was told she would be on full
disability in five years and most likely to be dead in ten. She’s fought to live a normal life every day since and is beating those odds. She works at a demanding job, is a single mom, cares for an elderly mother, and two dogs.
Angee describes her job as- “I fight to save people’s lives. Sometimes I lose, sometimes I win. It's the
emotional roller coaster of that job, which leads me to writing. I'm able to put those emotions into my
characters and let them out of my heart and soul.”
