Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
Improvising! Write by the seat of my pants! Call it what you want. I don't outline much. I pour out a first draft longhand, then type it and give it to beta-readers. Then it's editing, revisions and adjustments - and it's off to editor. Then it's final check, format and upload! :)

I'm a fast writer because I consider myself a storyteller, not a wordsmith. I need to tell a story, not write the perfect sentence. I get a lot of blank stares from other writers who agonize over a comma... sorry, but I don't know what writer's block is! :)

Also, I'm very character-oriented. I've written stories from drawing of characters. Or I simply watch the "movie" unfold in my head and write it down. That's why I'm not really into five-senses writing and have a lot of dialog. I'm plot and character-oriented in both my writing and reading habits!

My influences come from movies, comic/BD/manga, and other books. Sometimes reality, but you can probably tell I don't like it much. Sometimes history - and I've learned to love my research, but also not to pour it all in the fictionalized version, or it would be a quite boring reading experience!
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything that sounds remotely interesting, fiction and non-fiction. Fiction-wise, I'm not into erotica or horror, but everything else is fine. Non-fiction I read either history books, conspiracy theories, books on writing and sometimes self-help or spirituality. But I don't need suggestions or recommendations, my TBR list is long enough already! :)
