Interview with Cal Wade

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Knowing that what I write entertains the lives of others who read what I write.
What do your fans mean to you?
Gee, having fans would mean more to me than anything in this world, I would adore any fan that likes my stuff. Really, I would appreciate them greatly.
What are you working on next?
Wherever the wind blows my pen, I usually like to dabble here and there on a few projects, but I can get inspired and write a few chapters a day.
Who are your favorite authors?
James Dashner really has motivated me to write the kind of things I do. His books are very new and innovative to today's society.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The fact that I have to.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Either with some kind of work, or researching on how to refine my skills, if it's dialogue, or structure, either way I'm learning.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Through forums, and filtered search query's.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, a fifty page rough draft. It was a science fiction / romance, and I still work on it today, as it is my first and favorite.
What is your writing process?
I usually take the time to discuss with myself the qualities of the plot, and then revise that into a chapter. After about writing five chapters I can really pick up the pace, finally I read the story for loopholes, or things that just don't roll off the tongue right.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I can't remember the first story I ever read, but the one to impact me was the James Dashner series.
How do you approach cover design?
Covers aren't really my forte, I will more than likely pay for a professional cover.
Describe your desk
A mess.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a somewhat poor environment, and this has aided in my learning experience of emotions and trials.
When did you first start writing?
I wouldn't be able to recall.
