Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh yes, I certainly do! Actually it became the first book I published. The Adventures of KAD. Before that I did a lot of other things. I was reading Indie books, however, I was curious to find out how easy or difficult it would be to publish a book, so I thought, “I must try that!”
I decided to write a short story based on a childhood fantasy. Just something small, a couple of thousand words, perhaps, which I could publish just to find out what you had to do. Once I started I was amazed at how easily the words flowed from my fingertips and before I knew it I was spending more and more time writing. By the time I reached the end I had a proper book of 130,000 words!
What is your writing process?
Most of the time the plot for a potential story pops into my mind as I’m on the verge of waking. If I like it, I jot it down in a few sentences and try to grasp the ‘feel’ of the story. Then I mull over for a couple of days and the raw outline of the story starts to develop. Sometimes I flesh out the plot on paper but most of the time I just start writing after I have settled on the main characters.
During the periods that I can’t write I listen to what I’ve written while I am driving, making mental notes of what needs to be changed.
I repeat that process until the story is ready. At the moment I’m working on five different stories at the same time. Some are just a few pages and others slowly progressing. I move between the stories which mostly happens when I’m stuck on one. It also gives you a fresh perspective when you come back to it later.
