Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When I was about twelve, I wrote a "novel" (it was about 50 pages) that was a cross between Narnia and Bridge to Terabethia. I was convinced it was original work. I had no idea I had created fan fiction or what fan fiction even was. Oh, it also starred my dog.
What is your writing process?
My process changes with every book, though a few things remain the same. I dont write out an outline, but I do know how it starts, a few important parts in the middle and usually a rough idea of the ending. This tends to mean my first draft is a bit of a mess and requires major rewrites, including changes to the plot and main character.

As for the nitty details of my process, I try to write every day, but there are months at a time when I can't bring myself to touch a story. Lately I've been writing by hand, and even finished an entire first draft this way. Of course it all ends up typed on the computer eventually.
