Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. I used write a lot of fan fiction, but the first original story j wrote was called 'Magic Water'.
What is your writing process?
I write an (extremely messy) outline in paper and then refine it when I type it into my laptop. Then, I start writing and proofreading.
