Recently, somebody on the Harry Potter roleplay site I frequent asked me how I write. Strangely enough, that is a very difficult question to answer. Unfortunately, there are so many paths writers use to get to their final product. There is no wrong way to get there, but some people prefer a specific method or process. After giving it much thought, I decided to describe my writing process in a drawn out way.
The best advice I have ever received in regards to writing was to write what you love. If a person is forced to write about something for which he or she has no love, the words will be empty vessels written out of spite.
