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 I also use expressions and words that are very old-fashioned and outdated, or the way I imagine someone in the Mafia, etc., might speak.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.

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.
