Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I have a great appreciation for science fiction authors, classical and modern, including Herbert, Asimov, Dick, Heinlein, Bradbury, Haldeman, Clarke, and Adams.
What is your writing process?
Everyone who asks me how I function as a writer gets this answer: Write 1,000 words a day. No more, no less. Here's why: When you sit down to write every day - and you must write every day - you always want something interesting to happen. No writer wants to spend a whole day writing something boring or tedious, just as no reader wants to trudge through that part of your book. When you develop the discipline to write 1,000 words every day, it gets your butt in the chair and it forces you to fill that quota with something interesting, important, and memorable. This keeps the pace of your book rolling along, advancing the plot and keeping your reader turning the pages.
