Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember, when I was in third grade, writing a story about these two alien friends named Ed and Bob. They crash landed on Earth and always got themselves into trouble. To put it lightly, I was obsessed with aliens and UFOs back then, which played a part in what I wrote about. There were countless pages scrawled in messy third-grade handwriting recounting all the adventures Ed and Bob went on. If I were to have any regrets in life, it would be not keeping those stories. But I plan to revisit Ed and Bob the aliens soon. Hopefully my writing has improved since then.
What is your writing process?
Honestly, most of the time I don't even know where my stories are going when I start them. I have a vague idea of plot lines and important events, but most of The Foretelling was written before I even knew how the series was going to end. I don't keep an outline, but I make sure to write certain things down so I don't forget to work them back in later. I kind of just sit in front of my computer, read the last few pages I've written, and go from there!
