Pens, Paws, and Claws would like to welcome author Eric Woods to the blog. Tell our readers a little about yourself and your writing. Beginning in third grade, my teachers would Writing pens for men short stories for the class to write.
While most of the class took the assignments with little significance, I became enamored with the art of storytelling. I began writing outside of class simply for fun and made it my mission to someday write a novel. My genre of choice was horror. I had become a fan of the 80s slasher film series such as Halloween, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street, to name a few.
The idea of good vs. Coming up with strong protagonists and evil antagonists drove me to come up with creative stories. During my undergraduate years at the University of Illinois Springfield, I took a class on playwriting.
This was a new genre in creative writing, and I took to it immediately. A year later, after I had graduated with an English degree, the same theatre performed my dark comedy The Living End. In total I have written 10 full length stage plays with two others still in process.
My creative writing took a hiatus for many years. But this time was different. I had an idea, and instead of haphazardly jumping in with little direction, I thought about the story, the characters, the settings, and everything else it would take to get through to the end.
I wrote character sketches revising as neededput together an outline, and set a modest word per day goal. The editing and revising process was intense, but by JuneI was finally satisfied and decided to self-publish the novel.
Although I have always been a fan of horror, this novel belongs in the action-drama category. My second novel, however, is indeed of the horror variety. My first edit bumped the word count up to approximately 93, words.
My hope is to have it ready for publication by October, in time for Halloween. Now that I have figured out the method of writing that works for me, the ideas have poured in. I am already outlining my third novel which should be a unique style that I do not believe has been done before in the world of creative writing at least I hope not.
