When I say comfort zone, I really mean the way that I construct my novel. I have never read into the methods used by other authors to write but I think that I have a weird way of writing. For my first book, I wrote the first chapter of the book in 2010, then in the following months I wrote down a lot of different ideas of which directions to take the book, next came a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of how the plot would unfold. Then, when all of that was complete, I finally came back to fill in the story. I know it’s backwards, but it worked for me. It may be due to a lack of focus or organization…but hey, at least it’s better than “writer’s block”.
