GUEST POST FROM THE AUTHOR

Hello, I’m Alexandra Forry author of Wildflower and Timeless Endings. In this Guest post that I doing today. I’m going to dive in to face and identify my biggest writing problems when writing my novels.

I do have a bit of a problem being “stilted,” but that is because I’m 25 and don’t have a lot of world experience so I tend to imagine what it would be like or I “borrow” from other depictions of the experience, which can be off, especially if I get my impressions from television or erotic literature.  I also use expressions and words that are very old-fashioned and outdated, or the way I imagine someone in the Mafia, etc., might speak.  That’s another reason people consider some of my dialog “stilted.” I sometimes write something not exactly like a normal teenagers would talk.  I often mix my tenses.  And from time-to-time I switch from first person to third person.

For a year of my live I went throw a dry spell and couldn’t write anything that was any good. It was a dark time for me. Sitting at my desk and looking at a blank page unable to write anything, I was about to give up as an author. Until one day a super-great story line popped up in my head and now I back writing. It feels great to be working on a new novel. Which I am hoping I can finished by the end of 2015.

Having a grand and wonderful editor helps me out with writing problems helps big time. Over the year’s we have become a great team, working closely together, bouncing ideas off each other. I felt that I was real lucky finding someone like her. I am working on fixing my writing problem.

I want to thank this blog for the big honor of having me and my book Wildflower on this blog today. If you have any questions or comments, I will be happy to answer then.

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.

Book Description:
In this beautiful and moving story of love, growth, and redemption among the stunning red rocks of Sedona, Arizona, Sydney—a teenaged Army orphan—discovers that love knows no bounds and life has many twists and turns of fate. After she is forced to move in with her late mother’s sister Blanche and Blanche’s abusive alcoholic husband Dean, Sidney finds purpose and friendship in Lexy, the daughter of Max Heller the City’s most prominent widower and business magnate.
Unknowingly, the girls’ antics awaken Blanche’s lost and
suppressed passions and stirs Max’s long-thwarted drive to build a
loving and complete family. What emerges is the wonderfully
successful Epicurian Café, the brainchild of Blanche and Sydney
actively encouraged by Max and Lexy. The Café quickly becomes a
center of the community, the start of a new life for Blanche and
Sydney, and a chance for Max and Lexy to discover true love and the
meaning of commitment. An emotional roller-coaster with its exciting
twists and turns, Wildflower is an exhilarating and satisfying read.
Excerpt One:
Why don’t we open a business?
Like a simple sandwich and coffee shop,” Sydney announced with a
glimmer of hope in her eyes.
A sandwich shop?” Blanche asked,
looking surprised and a bit taken aback.
Yeah, why not?”
While Sydney waited for an answer,
Blanche just looked at her, dumbfounded
“Sydney, I would love to open a
sandwich shop, but it takes a lot of money–money that we just don’t
have.”
Oh please, Aunt Blanche! I bet you
can get a loan from the bank. It will be exciting!” Sydney pleaded.
I don’t think that your uncle
will approve. Sydney I love your idea, truly do! I was taken aback at
first, because it has always been a dream of mine to open a little
shop of some kind on Main Street,” Blanche said wistfully. ”It
costs a lot of money to open up a business, besides I have an offer
for a job in Prescott.”
Pooh on Uncle Dean, and turn down
that job. For me, please? You can ask Annette how to open a
business–she will know, since she owns her own business.” Sydney
said begging her aunt.
I will think about it,
okay, Sydney?” Blanche said making her way to her closet and
picking out a dress.
