Writing Tips: Kennedy J. Quinn- Give Me a Blizzard!


kennedy-j-quinn-author-photo-colorIn a mere 15 minutes the other day things went from a normal drive home to near chaos. Not much fun when commuting, but absolutely critical when writing.

Miss Livingstone’s story has been entertaining to me as a writer as well as to readers partly because she seems good at getting herself into jams, and rather creative at getting herself out of them again. Many of my characters struggle with inner angst or subtle conflict, but her circumstances are dire, like suddenly finding herself on the deck of a dirigible, flying through the air, or so far back in time the sheer number of years incites terror.

  1. One drive home from Nintendo was through a blizzard. Never again! Works great in a storyline though. Tweeted.
