Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
In this instance, how would one define writing? Are we referring to the time when I started learning letters,forming words and putting them on paper ? Or are we referring to when I sat down and just let the words flow? For me writing began when I stopped thinking and just let it happen. Some of my best work and poems have been published when i just wrote with the emotions in me and let the words guide me.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
In writing, much to the same as reading, a person is able to become someone they are not. In my writing I do not "make a character" for instance, I become the character. I am often taken to different worlds, far beyond places even I have imagined. This is what brings me joy and encourages me to write more, the constant evolution of a character. I have found times where I am leading the main character to story arc 1 just to have them blossom into something amazing and vastly different with story arc 2.
