How do you set up your writing, so that it flows? (research, outlining, character building, etc.)

Very awesome question. I never told anyone about how I set up my writing to that it flows. Some of it is standard but then I take it up a notch.

I only recently started using outlines. I had to pull myself from that “high horse”- Wing-It-All-writer to the Want-to-Finish-a-Novel-in-a-Timely-Manner-author. Outlines are still not my favorite thing but are helpful if I get stuck. I don’t need to outline short stories or novelettes.

I keep a composition book for each full novel. On one page could be: characters, foes, organizations.  Another page will have places (unless it takes place in just one city). Some pages will have major items, weapons, etc. And the list goes on.

Author: Aaron-Michael Hall

Aaron-Michael Hall is a native of southern Illinois. She was born and raised just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Mo. After moving about the country, she has returned to her roots and where this journey began. When she was younger, Aaron-Michael would get lost in the fantasy and sci-fi worlds created by Andre Norton, N.K. Jemisin, R.A. Salvatore, Octavia Butler, Ursula K Le Guin, and R. Scott Bakker. Being from a large family, Aaron-Michael would often steal away high in a tree or nearby wood seeking solitude. While enjoying the peace her natural surrounding provided, she created her own worlds and languages. For hours, she would be lost in the magnificence of her own imagination. Some characters and elements created then are used now in her current series. The Rise of Nazil is the first novel in the trilogy of the same name from this new author. It is an intelligent and intriguing read with a host of characters. Seed of Scorn (book 2) and Piercing the Darkness (book 3) complete The Rise of Nazil trilogy and are all available on Amazon. When asked why she wrote this series, Aaron-Michael simply said, “It needed to be written.” Blood of Oisin is the title of the first novel in The Shifter trilogy that releases February 2017. It is her hope that the readers enjoy the wonders of Faélondul even more than she enjoyed writing about them.
