Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I'm not sure that it is a process as such. I sit down in front of my PC with a blank page open and ready, and I start to write. I have a vague idea in my head of what I'm going to write about, I have a theme or subject matter rolling around in my brain, and as I write it is like putting flesh on a skeleton. I aim to write a certain amount each day (up to 4000 words if I'm in the zone). I aim for a minimum of 1000 a day but if I write less that is no bad thing. Writing even a line is an achievement. After writing I save and close my document then when I go back to it the next day I read back through what I'd written the previous day, checking for errors, spelling, grammar, and refreshing my memory as to what I had said. Then I continue. At some point I get a feel for when I'm nearing the end of the book then once I've finished I go back to the very beginning and I read through the entire book, editing and proofreading as I go. Then I put the book aside for at least a month, go and do some other things, then go back to it with fresh eyes. I read through aloud the second time because I find reading aloud is useful for spotting any last mistakes and helps to judge whether my story flows. I have been known to go through a book about four times until I'm satisfied that it is as good as it's going to get. Though, in all honesty I am never entirely satisfied. I always think things could be better. But eventually you reach a point where you have to say to yourself "it's now or never, publish or die." Once I've put my book out there I start another one. Depending on what I'm writing it can take anywhere between three and nine months to write a book, and that does not include the time taken to read through and edit. I write usually in the morning, at a desk that's in my living room. I use a PC with keyboard. I can't type on a laptop. I need to be able to "feel" the keys under my fingers. I usually write in silence, or at least as silent as you can get with outside background noise. I can't write and listen to music at the same time, as some people seem able to. I need relative quiet and no interruptions. I'm always writing something, whether it's a novel, a poem or just an entry in my diary, and, touch wood, I've never yet experienced writer's block.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
At the moment I only own the basic Kindle. I would have preferred a colour one because covers look so much better on them.
