When did you first start writing?
As soon as I could! But, I only recently found the courage to share and start publishing some material.
What is your writing process?
I don't have a specific process as such. I've always found writing to be a pretty organic experience, especially at the very beginning stages of an idea or story. I find it (an idea) just takes hold of me and I have to go with it, whether scribbling notes on scrap pieces of paper or on my phone, I just write and see what comes of it. It's a glorious outlet for so many canned thoughts and dreams getting tangled up inside my mind. Writing relieves pressure.
I have boxes full of notebooks and loose thoughts on paper, that I'm afraid to look at. Writing with the aim to publish is entirely new to me so my process is evolving. However I'm sure it will always begin as organically as it always has, I'm learning to form that into something others may want to read.
