It's an every other Tuesday, which means I owe you a blog. But I'm begging off for a day or three 'cause I've been super busy with a fantastic project at work as well as a writing conference this past weekend. The blog, when I do get it posted, will be about the conference and include narrative structure and a hitman and Paul Newman and helicopters and HALO jumps and Myers-Briggs and third person limited point of view.
Are you intrigued yet?
Hi, Tracey, and welcome! Let’s see if I can manage to not sound like I’m really uncomfortable on a first date so…tell me about you!
Hi Taylor, and thank you for hosting me today! I’m writing from small-town Minnesota, where I live with my hubby and two kids, age 5 and 10. I work a full-time job, running our family motorcycle business.
At heart I am a storyteller; I love digging deep into a character and exploring how things that happen in their life impact and transform them. I’ve published two novels (both of which have been winners or finalists in contests), and my third will release this summer.
Writing being number one, of course!, what other activities do you enjoy?
My favorite way to spend time is riding my motorcycle, especially if my kids and hubby are with me. Unfortunately, here in Minnesota I’m lucky if I can stretch that to seven months of the year.
I’m also a vocalist (I’ve released two cover songs and been featured on other albums) and play taiko drums, which is like a cross between martial arts and banging on BIG drums (great exercise!). I’ve even toyed with video and production; in fact, my second music video, featuring a female motorcyclist, was just released: http://www.traceycramerkelly.com/cool-rider-music-video/
Do you have a writing schedule?
