Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story that I can remember writing was one that was called "Johnny Jelly Bean" and it was a story that was about a jelly bean that lived in Coopers Candy Store. It was a story written for a creative writing class in the 7th grade. In this story Johnny learns about the differences between himself and the other types of candies that live in the candy store, and his fathers words of not thinking himself better than the others because of who and what he is ring true for all ages today. This story is in my first book; "Four Nine Zero Nine Eight."
What is your writing process?
Generally my writing process is one that begins with writing a drabble. A 100 word short story and from then I begin to build that idea into something more and more like a growing story. I often draw from childhood experiences when possible. Another thing that I like to do is look at a photograph and see if there is something there that draws a picture in my mind that can become a story upon its own. I remember the quote, "a picture is worth a thousand words" and I try to put that into play when I write.
