In fact, Sofie can’t think of a time when she wasn’t writing. She took part in a poetry contest in third grade, winning third place. She also experimented with radio commercials and short stories. But she will be the first person to tell you that her short stories could have been better.
Sofie is not surprised that she couldn’t get them published. Ultimately, writing was not her target. Her goal was to direct movies after moving to California. But after trying her hand at short stories, articles, and commercials, it was only natural for her to take an interest in fiction.
Sofie keeps telling everyone who asks that she doesn’t have any secrets to offer where writing and publishing are concerned. From what she has seen, you write books by being disciplined. That means sitting down and writing until your manuscript is finished.
She doesn’t subscribe to the idea of waiting to acquire inspiration before writing. At the very least, the approach doesn’t work for her. Sofie makes outlines for every novel she writes.
She also tries to write a specific number of words daily. Some days are easy. But many of them are incredibly challenging. However, Sofie doesn’t allow those challenges to stop her.
Her ideas come from everywhere. She has admitted to eavesdropping in public. Some of the things she overhears spark ideas. She will also watch people, going so far as to concoct stories about their lives.
Her fans might be surprised to learn that she does a lot of research. The author loved math and science in school. She also secured degrees in biology and education.
Her studies taught Sofie to appreciate research. She had a professor who encouraged her to nurture a curious mind by asking as many questions as possible about every piece of information she encountered.
Another instructor told her that mistakes had more to teach her than success. She took their advice to heart. The author uses those skills to search for and analyze information.
Additionally, Sofie is not afraid to seek out experiences associated with the various topics in her books. For instance, she visited a cat show to prepare for ‘Undercover Kitty.’
The experience was surprisingly entertaining because she was surrounded by friendly people and their cats. The people answered every question she asked. Because her books have a lot of humor, readers think Sofie is funny, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The author describes herself as a serious person. She took inspiration from a playwright called Norm Foster. He taught her to observe everything because humor comes from the things that happen around people every day.
