Patricia D. Eddy


Patricia D. Eddy doesn’t know how to relax. Really. She’s tried. But between a full time job, running, cycling, swimming, writing, reading, and the occasional movie or trivia night, it just doesn’t happen. Despite routinely telling her mother that her life is boring, what she really means is that she doesn’t have enough free time to get bored. She wouldn’t have it any other way. She lives in Seattle with her husband and three cats. She has been known to participate in clandestine coffee bean exchanges in corner shops and is happiest when she’s mixing the perfect Manhattan.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No, I don't remember the *actual* story, but I remember writing it. I was sitting at my parents' kitchen counter on our very first computer typing it out. I did that a lot. I'm an only child and we lived out in the country, so when I couldn't get a ride to go play with my friends, I'd often sit down and make up stories. After a few years, I stopped typing the stories out but I'd keep playing them out in my head. It wasn't until 2002 or so that I started writing stories down again.
What is your writing process?
I tend to have three or four projects going at once. I get bored easily and I like bouncing between books. I tend to write late at night, usually between 9pm and midnight. I do write everyday, even if it's only for 5-10 minutes. There are days I get 2000 words down and days I can barely manage 200, but I write something every day.

I'm a firm believer that the right process is the one that works for you and while I don't always follow conventional wisdom, my process works for me.
