Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
My writing process stems from real life situations and then my imagination soars from that point. My ideas tend to start with characters in my head who are having conversations-- usually arguments. I listen to them-- they're so angry, but there's love there too, or desire, or insecurity, or despair-- and I ask myself, what are they fighting about? What happened to them? Who are they? What do they want? Why is life so hard for them?

And then it all starts to come together.

Characters, relationships, and feelings come first. Then setting, plot, and so on tend to filter in around it. The details of the plot, the bones that hold it together, are often the last things I work out; there are parts of the plot I don't know until I get to them in the book, and they happen.

Characters are similarly elusive. A conversation I'm writing may veer off course or get out of hand; I can intend a character to say something, but it doesn't mean she will. My characters often surprise me. And then I realize I was wrong about who they were, and I adjust my perceptions.

I spend a lot of time staring into space. I talk to myself. More importantly, I research whatever I'm writing about.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read was a parable in the bible. I remember that I caused me to go deep in thought. And one thought connected to a million other thoughts. I researched in went deeper to get a better understanding so if I ever recalled this parable I would know what I was talking about and how to write about it.
