Whiteboards and Post-Its Everywhere!

I'm a whiteboard fanatic. Not only do I have two whiteboards in my writing cave where I scribble all my super-secret notes, but I've also started wallpapering my walls with post-its.


(Yes, they're all different colors... and yes, I buy them in bulk.)


PSA: Don't turn on the ceiling fan when you have post-its for wallpaper.


When I started writing Beneath the Fallen City, I wasn't thinking about turning it into a series. It just sort of happened. The story ended up being something bigger than what could be contained within one book.


It's required some... creativity. Especially with staying organized.


I use a series bible to keep track of my characters (and their elemental alignment):



Yep. That's my digital cheat sheet. Don't zoom in -- SPOILER ALERT!


You peeked, didn't you?


That's okay. Over the span of six books, I've managed to collect quite a few characters. As I told my editor, in my most recent book, I went a little "Game of Thrones". Sometimes, killing off a few people is the best way to keep the character count down.


Well, that and it's a little therapeutic.
