Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, absolutely. I was in 8th grade and my teacher handed each of us a 8 by 10 photo--mine was of the interior of an abandoned factory. Our assignment was to write about the photo. Most students wrote a few paragraphs of description. I wrote a 15 page story about a fugitive wrongly convicted of murder and his flight from and final confrontation with police inside the abandoned factory. It starred my math teacher, after I got his permission to use his name and promised him a copy. I got an A on that little assignment and I've been hooked on writing since 8th grade.
What is your writing process?
I write the entire story, sometimes in longhand, sometimes on the computer, and then edit it, rather than editing while writing. I will also wrte while at work, on breaks and during lunch if the story is really nagging at me. Some authors use outlines but I rarely do, though as ideas hit me, I write them down for later use. The one time I used an outline, it was so detailed that I had the whole story, as though I'd written it and hten, because I did have that much detail, I never actually wrote the story. Outline was so detailed, it seemed I had already written it! So, a few pages of notes and ideas, and then actual writing.
