“My Mind as an Author” by Alexandra Warren
Imagine being in a public place and the only thing you can think about is how many plot bunnies for future novels you see around you. That’s exactly how my mind works now that I’ve taken on the wonderful world of Romancelandia.
Everyone and everything – except for my closest friends and family… maybe – has the possibility of showing up in one of my books mainly because of how easily inspired I am by human interactions at the most basic level. Whether it’s a father playing with his son, strangers meeting for the first time in an airport, a couple sharing coffee on a date, someone FaceTiming with a loved one on the beach; my mind is constantly registering tidbits from everything going on around me so that I can create a fictional reality later.
I enjoy being able to make my words come alive, to make my characters come alive in a way that readers connect with them on a personal level. I enjoy making readers feel what my characters feel, laugh with my characters, cry with my characters, be mad with my characters depending on the situation. And for me, that’s what being an author is all about.
So even though my mind is constantly in go-mode, observing, and saving, and taking in my surroundings, I truthfully wouldn’t have it any other way.
