The Writing Process Outline

The Master Process Outline covers all the stages of my writing process and outlines the content that you'll find here. For each stage and subsection, I'll provide insights on how I tackle them and recommend useful resources.

The resources I recommend are ones I’ve tried myself and implemented in my writing. None of the links are sponsored, and all the noted resources remain the property of their creators.

From the Writer's Desk

Background 1b.jpg

Hey there friends, I'm Cam Gillings. As a storyteller and crafter of the fantastical, I love sharing and giving back to the remarkable writing community I became a part of three years ago. 

For months I debated about the focus of my website.

I knew I wanted to help, encourage and motivate other writers, but after a few failed attempts I realized ‘regular blogging,’ as I call it, wasn’t for me.

For one, I didn’t want to regurgitate what I’ve already seen being done by authorpreneurs I admire. Two, it didn’t feel me, and I believe a strong platform of any kind is built on genuine connections. And three, I wanted the format of my website to be something I love and enjoyed. The more passionate I am about anything, the better I am at it.

So, instead of recreating the wheel, I’ll be showing how the wheels created by other fabulous creators in our writing community have aided me.

When I’m not deconstructing my writing process to share with you on The Writerly Owl, I’m knocking out words for my YA Fantasy novel or brainstorming new ways to conquer the world.

Fun Tidbits

A little more about me ...

  • I'm a cat person.

  • Reading is my great escape.

  • I'm an introvert. Though I’ve met some awesome people in the writing community, stepping out of my shell still causes much anxiety. If I initiate a conversation with you, know it probably took me hours to days to work up the guts to do so.

  • I’m an INTJ Slythendor.

  • Dang it if I don’t procrastinate. It’s a serious illness, but is there a cure?

  • BTS and GOT7 now consume my taste in music. Army + Ahgase Forever!
