Published Author Bridget Baker Shares Her Secrets with The Write Styles

Happy 2019 and Welcome back to The Write Styles where today, Published Author Bridget Baker Shares Her Secrets with The Write Styles! What better way to start the year than an inspiring writer sharing her secret story of success 🙂

Welcome to The Write Styles Bridget! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

Published Author Bridget Baker Shares Her Secrets with The Write Styles

TWS: Bridget, you only decided to self publish having written your sixth book. I noted that you mention rejections and even ‘cursed’ acquisitions on your blog. However, you still kept going. What exactly was your reaction to your first rejection? What made you keep going?

Bridget: I think writers write. That sounds like a simple statement, and maybe it doesn’t make sense unless you’re a writer, but at the heart of writing is a desire to craft a story. In fact, I’d say writing is about 10% craft and 90% not stopping until you get it right. If you want to be a successful writer, attempting traditional publication is a wonderful place to cut your teeth. The first time I wrote a novel it was absolutely awful.

When I wrote my FOURTH novel, it was halfway decent, and that’s the one that landed my agent. It still wasn’t great. It was rewritten so many times, I doubt many of the original words are even left. I paid an editor to help me. I went on and wrote another four books (Three YA contemporary fantasies, and a YA Contemporary Suspense) before going back and rewriting that fourth one again. The only reason I went ahead and indie published it is that I had revised it so much it no longer resembled that first book.

To answer your question though, I kept going because I had to keep writing. If you can stop writing, you should stop. It’s a lot of work without a lot of reward. Some of us can’t seem to quit. We are the writers.

TWS: Your blog also shares that you won your first writing contest in second grade. When you wrote the short story for the class, were you already passionate about writing? Or was it that moment where you won the competition that made you want to continue the writing journey? How did that competition influence your writing career?

Bridget:Actually I thought I was amazing in second grade. I didn’t realize I was awful until after I read over my first book and realized it was tremendously bad. That contest wasn’t actually what gave me the desire to write novels. That came from Little Women. I hated the ending. Hated may not be a strong enough word. I despised the ending. I set out to rewrite it, and my ending was so much better that I knew I could write a novel. Ha! I had no idea how hard it would prove to be.

TWS: Bridget, you wrote your second novel at Panera Bread. That must have been quite a relaxing place to write. Where would you say is your favourite place to write? How does scenery or location affect your writing practice?

Bridget: I am very impressed that you found my blog. I don’t think anyone else has ever read that post. Good job! I used to escape to Panera bread because when my husband was in residency, we had a very very small house and two very small children. He couldn’t keep them out of my hair. I would run to Panera, eat bean soup or tomato soup, or a smoothie, and write. Now I do all my writing in my bedroom, either on the new desk my husband finally insisted I buy, or plonked down on my bed. It’s terrible form, I know, but I like sitting on my bed and writing. And the commute can’t be beat. 😛

TWS: You stated that you had eschewed self publishing for quite a while before looking further into it. What were your first thoughts on self publishing? How do you feel about it now?

Bridget: Honestly, I felt like without an industry gatekeeper saying my book was good, it wasn’t good enough. Then I started reading traditionally published books that were, clearly, not as good as mine. I don’t say that lightly. Every writer struggles with the fear their work stinks. Every single writer I know. And yet, it was very very obvious that my books were good, but they were never selected.

When my agent left her agency and I was agentless again, I thought, “GAH! Why is this happening to me?” I decided to query more agents. I sent out 75 queries and got right around 36 full manuscript requests, (Which is really high), and then I sat and waited and waited. It felt like I’d die without ever publishing a book. And finally, I just thought. To heck with that. I’m sick of other people deciding what books of mine get out there. I started looking into indie publishing and pulled all my manuscripts from agents.

Bridget E. Baker Website

TWS: Your book trilogy, ‘Sins of our Ancestors’ is about a virus nearly wiping out the human race, while the ‘Almost a Billionaire’ is a romantic book series. What would you say is your favourite genre to write? What should aspiring writers be aware of when writing various genres?

Bridget:I am the wrong person to ask about what to avoid. I went into indie publishing because I was sick of doing what people said I had to do. I’m sure I’m ruining my marketing by doing two completely different genres. Part of me doesn’t care. I read all over the place, so I also write the same way. I think you need to make sure you deliver on the promise of that genre, no matter what genre you choose. If you’re going to write romance, you better deliver that happily ever after. If you’re writing fantasy, build that world right. My favorite genre is whatever I’m writing at the time. I’m a shameless lover of so many books that I can’t seem to commit. (Luckily that affliction hasn’t impacted my love life! Just the one husband who I absolutely adore!)

TWS: Bridget, I noted on Facebook that you recently had a holiday in Costa Rica, how exciting! Can you share a sneak previews into any new ideas you may have collected there for your next novel?

Bridget: I am ALWAYS on the look out for new novel ideas and my husband and I travel. A lot! I worked out an issue with my new book coming out while I was on a catamaran to a hidden island. I worked out the details of my next billionaire romance while in a kayak playing with monkeys. I worked out the ending to a YA fantasy when I was hiking in a cloud forest. I am always always always thinking about my stories.

Bridget E. Baker Books on Amazon

TWS: What would you consider as your most magical experience? And how did the experience affect your writing?

Bridget: My most magical experience in Costa Rica was the monkeys. If you mean in life, I think seeing third world countries, not the tourist locations, and talking to people there is the most transformative experience someone from America can undergo. We live in such a bubble. Seeing the hard work, and the hard life, that goes on around us in the world is shocking and eye opening.

TWS: You stated that your first novel was terrible and that your second one was probably even worse. What helped you become a better writer? What advice do you have for aspiring writers who may suffer from writers’ block? Or those who have great ideas, but cannot string their words together?

Bridget: BUY ALL THE CRAFT BOOKS. So many people love so many different ones. My favorites were Story Genius by Lisa Cron and Story by McKee, but honestly I read dozens before that. You wouldn’t expect to learn the law without reading textbooks. You can’t learn to WRITE just by reading books. I found Stephen King’s book on writing USELESS but other people love it. So read read read those craft books and KEEP applying what you learn. I really do think you’ll level up each time. Write a lot, read a lot, and craft read a lot and you’ll improve with each step.

But prepare yourself. The more you learn about the craft of story telling, the more you will ruin your enjoyment of MANY books and movies. They become predictable and I’m a borderline prose snob. If someone’s prose is bad, I can’t force myself to read it at all! Ugh. It makes me sad because I think I miss a lot of great stories that way, but there it is.

TWS: Thank you so much for your time.


Bridget: No, thank you so much!!!!

Internationally Published Poet Shares his Writing Experience

Welcome back to the Write Styles where on this motivational Monday, an Internationally Published Poet Shares his Writing Experience with us! Welcome to the Write Styles, Warren.

Dear poets, don’t forget to check out our previous article with the amazing poet Lorraine Candy who shares Poetry in Motion with the Write Styles 🙂

Internationally Published Poet Shares his Writing Experience

TWS: Warren, at the age of 15, you had already written over 300 poems. Do you recall how old you were when you wrote your first poem?

Warren: I must apologize for the confusion; I actually began writing at the age of 15 and have completed over 300 poems to date. I do not have as much time lately, but I make it a point to write at least one new piece every week, so I never have to encounter the dreaded ‘writers block’

TWS: Poetry is art. Leonardo Da Vinci stated that art is never finished, but abandoned. How would you relate to his statement?

Warren: As human beings, we are driven by our emotions, and that is what art is essentially. It is the expression of emotion whether it be love, passion, regret, hope in either of the forms; painting, writing, sculpting. Since emotion is at the core of who we are, theoretically speaking the artist could continue to produce artworks for a lifetime, but it is ultimately the choice of the individual to continue or not. This is probably the issue that Da Vinci was referring to.

TWS: In one of your articles, you shared your opinion on how kids are killing English through social media. How do you feel about the latest slangs and trendy words?

 Warren: A greater divide is being created between young and old due to the continued use of slang and ‘trendy’ words. Even a professional platform such as LinkedIn has not been spared from the onslaught of slang, abbreviations, and ‘hip’ words and phrases that have been picked up from music videos, movies, and other social networking sites. In my opinion, the situation is getting worse, which really makes me wonder how the youth will be able to excel in life if they are unable to communicate with those who are supposed to mentor, teach, and hire them.

How to Attract Anything You Want in Life

TWS: Recently, it is accepted to converse with someone who verbalizes the acronym, “LOL!” I even witness misuse of acronyms in writing-job applications. In my opinion, this is a reflection of how trending words are impacting our societies in general. However, it also indicates how society is evolving with writing. Could you share how writing has shaped you, personally?

Warren: Writing has shown me a world that I never imagined could exist and opened doors that I never knew were closed in the first place. It has taught me how to focus on one thing at a time and more importantly, how to finish what I have started. Unfortunately, though, writing has not given me a love for reading; I have read a grand total of two and a half (still trying to get through Enders Game) novels in the past seven odd years.

TWS: Warren, you write short stories, articles and essays. You also have your poetry published internationally. Which of your published work is your favorite writing experience?

Warren: I have two; my first time being published back in 2016 in an international publication called the IFLAC Anti-Terror and Peace anthology, which led to an interview on Lotus FM and an article on my achievement being printed in a local newspaper. The second would be collaborating with Leroy Chatfield, an American author, on a piece for his publication which was released earlier this year (Syndic no. 9 literary journal) It was the first time that someone who I have never worked with before had shown such a keen interest in my work.

Freelance Writing Academy

TWS: Your work is known to mirror your honest opinion. How do you deal with the critics?

Warren: Most of my readers actually agree with and can relate to my views on a particular subject because I write from my own experiences which include a good upbringing. In regard to those that have a negative view of my writing or have different opinions, I hold no resentment since everyone is entitled to their own opinion, as am I.

TWS: I recently read that you enjoy writing and researching topics in science and history. Have you been drawn to researching these subjects since age 15?

Warren: Yes, and no. History and science as subjects in school were extremely fascinating, but it was only after I had completed my high school career, did I then begin to research on my own, which has greatly influenced my writing and outlook on life in general.

TWS: Considering your interest in history, who is your most influential poet of all times?

Warren: Poetry can be conveyed in many forms; Shakespeare and Wordsworth used the written style, Maya Angelou conveys her beautiful messages verbally, while Hip-Hop artists use a musical/lyrical style. Therefore, for me the most influential poet has to be Marshal Mathers AKA Eminem, who has and continues to inspire me to better myself in every project I complete, through his music.

TWS: Lastly, what advice and insight would you like to share with other aspiring poets?

Warren: You make the rules. As long as you have breath in your body it is your duty to fight for your place among legends. Excuses will get you nowhere fast; find a way even if everyone tells you that there is none, work hard by writing every single day even if you are only writing for yourself, and never ever give up. Fail today to succeed tomorrow.

TWS: Thank you for your time and this wonderful opportunity.

The Write Styles Interviews Novelist Candice-Leigh Wadely

Welcome back to the Write Styles! On this Fantastic Friday we are interviewing an amazing novelist, Candice-Leigh Wadely! If you missed my previous interview, go check out where Megan Olivier shares her success story with the Write Styles.

TWS: Welcome to the Write Styles, Candice.

Candice: Thank you Julia, it’s a privilege.

The Write Styles Interviews Novelist Candice-Leigh Wadely

TWS: Candice, you have accomplished incredible achievements for somebody so young. You have a Bachelor of Arts in both Health Science and Social Services. I noted that you also have an Honors in Psychology, and an Integrated Learning Certificate. I was most amazed to see that you are also a teacher and have travelled around the world to work with children!
Could you please share with our readers how you manage your time? What disciplines do you practice to still make the time to write?

Candice: Time is very valuable to me. On top of all of those things I am also a single mother, and are still a student (studying my Postgraduate in Education). I manage my time by compartmentalizing all the things I do.

My son is the only thing that seeps into every minute of my day. Everything else has its place in my life.

I’m a teacher so at the moment I get home at around 3pm. I cook, do washing, and clean the house. You know, all those glamorous things! Then my son and I exercise together and play in the yard or do T’ai Chi. If he is playing independently I try to check emails, or reply to messages. We eat together and then read a book before bedtime. After the witching hour (supper, bath, bed) I usually take a half an hour for myself to just relax. I am occasionally guilty of that half an hour turning into me waking up at 2am having fallen asleep on the couch. Then I hit the books, do lesson plans or write.

When I am studying I have a very strict routine after my son goes to bed. It helps me keep on track. I make sure I set goals, and as I meet those goals I reward myself with writing. I sleep very little. Evidently I am part of the sleepless elite.

TWS: When did you first realize that you want to be a writer? Can you remember what inspired you at the time?

Candice: I was very young. Probably about eight years old. This is going to sound ridiculous but I had a poster on my bedroom wall. It was a poster of two children sitting on a rock with a dolphin in the water at their feet.

The little girl was holding a shell and the sunset behind them was stunning. I was obsessed with dolphins at the time and I really needed that poster to tell me a story, so I wrote one. I think that was the first thing I ever wrote; a story lost long ago.

TWS: Do you often feel that writing can energize you, but at other times writing can become exhausting? How do you find the balance between these stages?

Candice: Truthfully, I find writing to be my escape. When I am studying it helps me to push aside all the academic information. That is why at the moment I enjoy writing fantasy.

I have yet to experience stages of exhaustion. Perhaps if I wasn’t studying at the same time I would reach them because I wouldn’t have something else to exhaust me.

TWS: Some say they suffer of writers’ block. Do you believe in writers’ block? If so, how do you overcome it?

Candice: I have not experienced writers block, yet. I don’t write in a conventional way, I do not have a plan or a lay out, I just let the characters tell me what will happen next. I’m surprised at what happens in some of my writing.

I do believe it is a real thing, but I have to say that I think because writing is my creative outlet after hours of studying, it makes it easier for me to disappear into the world my characters create.

TWS:What would you consider is your greatest challenge about writing?

Candice: Time. Without a doubt it would be finding the time and energy to write after the busy days that I have.

TWS: What inspired your novel Cursed? Which character do you relate to the most?

Candice: I was busy with my Honors Psychology when I started writing Cursed.

Cursed

I had research reports coming out of my ears and my son was still very small so I was spread thin. One day I was watching him during his nap and I remembered a dream I had once had. In the dream I was holding a baby and running away from something. I was so full of information from a morning of studying that I decided to just sit and write it down. It just carried on coming. I used that nap time to just let my brain stray from the information overload of my degree, and it turned into a book.

Who do I relate to? Each of them is a part of me, each one has one of my many nuances written into them somewhere. If I had to choose, I would say I relate most to Lydia and Seraphina.

TWS: As a student of science and humanity, could you share how you came about to write Cursed as a fantasy novel?

Candice: I love fantasy as much as I love logic and science, as well as the humanities. The fantasy came about as an escape from the practicality of my work. We all need somewhere to escape to and I am not traveling at the moment due to my studies, so what better place than the imagination. As a child I had a vivid imagination, perhaps it’s just never left me.

TWS: What made you want to become a teacher?

Candice: I have a passion for education. I believe it really could be the answer to everything that is wrong with the world. I think there are some redeeming qualities in the way we educate our children, but there are also gaps.

My goal is to write curriculum that will be accessible to anyone and everyone. Curriculum that will inspire teachers, and captivate learners. Then there are obviously the children. I teach because I love spending time with inquiring minds, and there no minds as inquiring as those of children.

TWS: What was your favorite experience while traveling around the world? How did the environment affect your writing? Did teaching TEFL in anyway influence your writing?

Candice: My favorite experience? That is an incredibly hard one to answer. I have had many amazing experiences in many amazing countries. I think if I had to pick one it would be this; while backpacking through Thailand we hopped on a scooter and made our way into the jungle (not a smart idea as scooters are not notorious for being off road bikes).

We got lost and ended up in a remote village. When we pulled up to ask for directions the entire village came out to meet us. One man was holding a toddler who I gravitated towards. I have loved children my whole life, and generally they take to me like ducks to water. This child, however, did not like the sight of me and screamed blue murder when I reached out to touch him.

The father very quickly, using gestures because no one in the village spoke English, told me that the child had never seen anyone with white skin before. We left the village feeling a bit more humble and informed about how different life is to every individual and how our way is not necessarily the right way even if it works for us. We ended the day swimming in the most amazing mangroves. It was a good day.

I think traveling has had a massive impact on not only my creative writing but also my academics. I could not pin point one thing, or one experience as being a defining moment. Each moment I experienced, every person I met, every conversation I had; I realized how little I knew. For the most part we live in our own little bubble surrounded by our own expert opinion, which we feed by keeping like-minded people close.

In the grander scheme of things, that expert opinion holds little water in the world. The world is too large, there is too much we don’t know, too much we will never see. Traveling taught me that we need be uncomfortable to learn. I don’t know if that comes across in this book, but in the one I am writing now, it is a major theme.

Yes. Teaching English as a Foreign Language has had a major impact on me as a person and by default my writing. Working with people of other cultures, particularly in their own environment, is mind blowing. Again, because we assume so much, yet know so little. In fact so much so, that if I can find the energy one day, after I have completed my current degree I intend to pursue a degree in Anthropology.

TWS: Lastly, can you share any insights with our aspiring writers? Can you share a personal message that has been your mantra when times are tough?

Candice: Admire the greats, but remember, they did not become great by being like everybody else.

TWS: Thank you so much for this opportunity.

Candice: It has been my pleasure. Thank you!
