Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I try and get everything out of me as quickly as possible, just vomit everything out. I used to try and edit as I wrote, but I never completed anything when I did that.

After it's all out there, I go back and clean it up as much as I can. Following that, I edit. I can't afford a proper editor, so I use an online editing program that, while not ideal, seems to work out fairly will for me.

Then I print it all out and read it out loud. I'm always amazed at the typos and mistakes I find when I read it out loud. I'm also hearing how it sounds, how it flows, and I make notes as I go. Finally, I make the changes that need changing based upon my read through, then get the thing published.
Describe your desk
I write on a laptop at the dining room table. So, it's flat, and expansive.
