Author Blog Recommendation: Reclusive Muse

Today I want to share with you one of my favourite author blogs.

Katherine Roberts, author of Song Quest, Spellfall and I AM The GREAT HORSE, has been blogging since January. Her blog is Reclusive Muse and she often communicates with her readers through her magical unicorn.

Katherine blogs about all kinds of interesting things - what she enjoys reading, places that she visits. She also posts art work, poems and writing by her readers giving them an outlet for creative expression.

I'm telling you about Katherine's blog now because she has recently written a series of posts that will be of interest to aspiring writers. Katherine has been documenting the process of writing I AM THE GREAT HORSE from the initial glimmer of idea to choosing a viewpoint and even the ending. I found it fascinating and an insight into the art of novel writing.

Here are the links to Katherine's I AM THE GREAT HORSE blog post series:
1. Why do you get your ideas?
2. Choosing a Viewpoint
3. Getting into the horse's rather big head
4. Beginning a Book
5. Research
6. Characters
7. The Plot Thickens
8. Endings

Hope you enjoy!
