Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I am VERY OCD when it comes to writing. If something inspires me, like a song or a movie, I can ONLY listen/watch that song/movie until my creativity fades. And if I write something really awesome with a specific pen then I will ONLY use that pen until it dies. I will also not read anything until I've completely run out of steam because I'm always worried it'll stunt my creativity. Or worse....summon my arch nemesis Stoney the Writer's Block! Yes, I named my Writer's Block.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
In 3rd grade our teacher read Harriet the Spy to us and I fell in love with the story. For those who don't know, it's about this 11 year old girl that spies on her neighborhood and writes everything down. It made me want to do the same thing only my neighborhood was so incredibly boring that I began making up things I wished I could see. And I've been writing every since. I've never wanted to do anything else.

Side note: my neighborhood was actually quite exciting but my innocent little head didn't understand what a "crack house" was at the time. Go figure.
