Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do! It was about a blue and red polka-dotted giraffe. I was six and I think it had three sentences total. Pretty sure my mom still has it kicking around her garage somewhere....
What is your writing process?
I write in bursts, or scenes. I outline a little, but write when inspiration hits. I think take my outline and figure out where to plug in the scenes I've written. It's a bit like a fun, plot-filled puzzle.
