Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Am I successful? That seems a little presumptuous of me to say, but...okay, assuming that I have success that could be contributed to, Smashwords allowed me to self-publish my book on my own terms, rather than wait around to get "discovered" by a publishing company.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I go back and read something I wrote long enough ago that I forgot that I wrote it, and think, "Hmmm, that's a pretty good way of expressing that particular part of the human experience." Usually when I go back and read things I've written I think, "Oh, dear. Delete." So on those rare occasions where I'm pleased with my writing, that's a joy.
