About Robyn Branick:
Robyn Branick is a first-time author with "Wendy's Song." The second published work is "19." She reads short stories and novellas in her spare time. Robyn is from New Jersey and worked as a waitress for many years. Robyn met a variety of people during her time as a waitress; some of these characters she writes in her stories, but the plots are fiction. "Wendy's Song" and "19" may be the first published works, but Robyn has been writing short stories on her blog and in private for friends for years. Her preferred storytelling is not for children, although she has written and illustrated some books for her cousin's kids.
What inspires you to write?
I like to write my stories when I am in a crisis or if I had a crazy dream. I usually expand the scene into a first draft in a few days.
Tell us about your writing process.
I usually write what comes to me at that moment. When I finish the first draft, I need to highlight and delete many scenes. I tend to ramble at times. Sometimes, if I am stuck, I will create an outline of my work and see what I need for plot or character development.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
While writing and revising a manuscript, I dream of the characters. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and write down the actions or what they've said. It helps keep them genuine
What advice would you give other writers?
I would tell writers not to stop their passion. Learn from their mistakes and keep moving forward.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I wanted to get my voice heard. I saw how little it took to self-publish books. I love every minute of it.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of publishing will be self-publishing, but there will always be a small group of publishing companies out there for those who like tradition.
What genres do you write?: fiction
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
