A storywriter does not go through the writing process exactly the same way for each story. Sometimes she may easily plan the entire sequence from beginning to end, before she begins to write. At other times, she has only that major point she wants to communicate and a hazy flow of events, but the pre-writing functions seem mysteriously paralyzed and the only thing she can do is begin with a word,and keep going until the tale weaves itself together under her feverish typing. And at still other times, she may not even have so much as the main idea–but only a title; perhaps a random phrase she heard at dinner, or a couple of words that headline a report, that to her is not just a fleeting comment, but a book that begs to be written.

Hi, my name is Kim-Lee Patterson, and I am an author, writer and editor. As a young Canadian-Jamaican woman living in one of Canada’s most expensive cities, my aim has always been to simply make the most of this thing called life. I also wrote and self-published my first book at age 17, a novel based on the story of Joseph, a historical figure known to Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. My work as a professional writer and editor spans the last 6 years and I've received over 30 recommendations for the quality of both my work and my personal energy--and that's with me doing very little promotion and networking. Meanwhile, I studied Accounting, Organization Behavior, and Web Design. I plan to pursue a Business degree in the near future. Keep an eye out for my second novel, Doctor Death, to be released October 2017. View all posts by Kim-Lee Patterson
