Interview with Stephanie Boggs

What is your writing process?
First I brainstorm ideas in a writers notebook. Next I make a draft. Then I proofread and highlight mistakes or things that could be better or needs changed. Then I go back in and edit it. Then I have someone not close to me read it and have them highlight. Then edit. Then proofread one more time. Then make a final draft and finally publish somewhere.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I was in 3rd grade. I wrote a story about my mom buying me a new cat for my birthday. It was about 4 pages.
When did you first start writing?
I first started really writing in 5th grade. I started with mostly short stories and writing in journals. My first novel I wrote but never published was when I was in 9th grade. It was about a emo girls struggle in high school. I was about 120 pages or so. I wrote it in a composition notebook. It took two of them.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The thought of the possibility to make someone's day better and doing things to better myself.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time with my family or taking photos. I have been a photographer for about 6 years now.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
By watching Youtube reviews and by recommendations.
How do you approach cover design?
By the way the story makes me feel as a person and what I as a reader would be attracted to.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly fantasy novels. I also like contemporary novels.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Nook color
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Honestly the chance to be creative and express myself through words.
