Interview with Lisa Scott

Describe your desk
Hahahahaha. I'm not lucky enough to have a desk or an office. I just work off a laptop while sitting on a reclining couch!
When did you first start writing?
I knew I wanted to be a writer in second grade when I was assigned my first creative writing project. So I've always looked for opportunities to write. But I started writing with an eye toward publication in 2007. I started self-publishing in 2011.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My most recent volume of Flirts! is about finding love with a touch of magic. This was so fun to write. As with all my Flirts! volumes, the stories all connect by location or characters. Witches and charms and ghosts, oh my!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
There is not a big traditional market for collections of romantic short stories! These probably wouldn't exist without indie publishing. Plus, I write quickly and love how I can instantly publish new work.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It's so easy to upload in one location which distributes to so many outlets, including new ones. The ability to generate coupons is great, too. There's lot of helpful information available, too.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love generating new ideas and seeing them come to life. And when I hear from readers who love my work? Wow, that makes all the hard work worthwhile.
What are you working on next?
Another selection of Holiday Flirts! Everyone loves a good holiday love story.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm also a voice actor by profession, so I spend a good amount of time doing that. In the summer, I spend hours and hours in my garden. (I've gone a bit overboard! But I love flowers.) I have two kids and a husband and we love to travel. There are never enough hours in the day!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My second grade teacher wrote the title The Periwinkle Pump on the chalkboard and told us to write a story. I couldn't believe I got to decide what the story was going to be! I was determined to make it a good one, so I wrote about a group of crafty elves with a magic pump. That's when I knew I wanted to be a writer.
What is your writing process?
I get lots of story ideas, and once I settle on one, I walk around with it for a while to flesh it out. (literally taking long walks where ideas and solutions easily appear.) Then I do a light outline to be sure there's enough story to flesh out, and I start writing. I do not write every day. When I do write, it's usually about 2,000 words a day. I'm attempting to get up earlier before the distractions of the day seize me, and see if that's more productive.
