Who Said the Blog Tour Ended???

Abigail did a beautiful job on hosting my interview at All Things Urban Fantasy and I don't want to disappoint her with a no-showing of commenters....so if anyone has a chance, run by there and comment for another free chance at a book!!!

I feel like Santa Claus in a wolf suit. :)


I'll also be at Dawn Thompson's blog on Oct 2, http://www.terry-spear.blogspot.com/ (I'll post the link here
on Friday) and I'll be giving another book away during Bitten by Books October celebration. Again, I'll post the link on my blog.

To get with the coming times, since October is nearly here...here's a post of a couple of wolves enjoying a pumpkin treat. :)

I was told my werewolves could not eat chocolate. As wolves, probably not. As werewolves in their human form, genetically they are humans. So sure. As women we know what it's like not to have chocolate when we want it, like an hour ago. :) Nibbling on a pumpkin, won't hack it. Not as a human.

These wolves had never seen a pumpkin before, by the way. Wonder how they'd like a watermelon?

If I wasn't writing this post right now, I'd be happily getting my hero and heroine in Plight of the Wolf into more trouble.

Once, I was asked, "How do you think up so many words?"

It made me think of filling pages after pages with words. Not a story, not a plot, not any conflict, not a romance, not anything but a mess of words, page after page after page of them. Up to 400 pages of them even. :) 100,000-plus words.

So that's what I'm happily doing. Having a blast filling up more and more pages with more and more words...that I hope will capture the reader's imagination and allow them for a few hours or a couple of days to join my wolves in their world.

So if you're a writer, how do you come up with all those words?

And if you're a reader, do you wonder how we do it, too? :)

Terry Spear, who sometimes wonders, too. :)

  1. Like you, it also just flows for me. I just sit there and let it happen.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Anidaadler! Don't you hate it though, when you're driving or in the shower, or just about asleep when the scene of the century comes to you? And you can't write it down??? But, yes, scenes just pop into my mind. Or as I'm writing, great twists come to me that if I tried to think up in the first place would never have come to mind. :)

  3. How do I come up with the words? I don't - my characters do. And sometimes they just won't shut up, like this morning at 4 am.

    *off to put those words on paper. Have fun blogging, Terry!

  4. I don't know how I do it. I just start typing and the words come out of my head and go straight to my fingers!
    Have fun blogging!

  5. Lol, Judi and Cheryl! Yeah, it's just like magic, isn't it???

  6. Terry,
    I always enjoy your posts!

    I tend to write shorter books, but I'm not sure that means I have trouble coming up with 100,000 words. I simply write until the story comes to what feels like a natural ending.


  7. Glad to see you're still chugging a long Terry! It's been a great tour.

  8. Hi Amelia! Thanks so much! I love writing all lengths, from short, shorts to the longer works. And I so agree, when the story is done, that's the time to end it! Great words of wisdom!

    Thanks, Danielle! It has been great!!! :) Couldn't have asked for better! :) Thanks for setting so much of it up. I couldn't have done it without you!

  9. I suddenly started filling pages, but in three stories at once. Then I stop and look at your wolves examining the pumpkin. That's how I feel examining my writing sometime.

  10. I know just how you feel, Sheila! When I wasn't on deadline, I used to do that all the time, flip from story to story when I got stuck and then back again when I was stuck on the new one. It helped me to keep writing through the block. :) But with deadlines, I have to just make myself get unstuck on one mss at a time. :)
