Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love being able to create a character and watch him/her develop. I have an idea at first and as the story develops, so does the character and it may not be my original intent. I let the character speak for itself and that is just a really cool part of writing for me.
What is your writing process?
I find inspiration for a story usually by listening to music. It conjures up a certain feeling and then the story develops in my head. I don't use outlines or story boards because I like to just start writing and see where it takes me. I call it layering because I start off with a very rough first draft and then I go back over it with more detail or adding in scenes and I keep doing that until I have it to where it's almost final. I might have an idea of what I want a character to be like but usually it never ends how I started. The characters sort of speak for themselves and develop as I write the story. It's what's so great about the process for me.
