Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
5th grade. I wrote my first story in the 5th grade. Granted, it wasn't spectacular, and now that I think about it, I'm sure it was much like whatever book I'd been reading at the time.

I continued writing stories through high school. None of them will ever see the light of day. And then, I finally published 7 years ago, during the middle of my college career.

I've been publishing ever since.
What is your writing process?
Sporadic. There's no rhyme or reason to my process. It changes from one book to the next. I have over 15 works in progress, and any given day, I may chose any one of them to work on, or start something new. It just depends on where my muse takes me.

Sometimes I plot out every chapter. Sometimes I just write a sentence or two, sometimes it's really lengthy. Then other times, I just stare at a blank page and start to write, word for word with no idea where I'm going.
