Bethany Chester


I am a writer from South Wales. My life isn’t very interesting, so my imagination has to compensate – hence my stories. I don't include a lot of description in my writing, because I think it's important that the reader imagines the characters and scenarios for themselves. I wrote my first novella at the age of fourteen, and I haven't really stopped since then! I don't really write certain genres, so I end up trying to fit my books in somewhere after I finish them. This probably isn't the best way to go about it, but hey. Rules are made to be broken.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
Let's see...first, I get an idea in my head. Then I might make an illegible mindmap. I do all my writing on the computer, because I edit as I go along. If I can read my terrible handwriting, I use the mindmap to help me, though by now the first chapter is usually all planned out in my head. I start writing, and don't stop until something distracts me. The usual culprits are Tumblr and hunger. Hey, that rhymes! Good thing I'm a writer and not a poet.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I can't say I do, but I remember making my parents read me this alphabet book, over and over again. I could recite the alphabet before my second birthday, so I suppose it was always meant to be. And from a very young age, I've had an internal monologue/running commentary in my head. Is it weird to narrate your own life? Perhaps slightly.
