Do you use an outline or just begin with an idea and write toward a conclusion?
I always know the beginning and the end – and some of the scenes in between – before I start. Then I just let the words flow. It's sort of like having a road map, but allowing myself to take a side trip or two and then deleting what doesn't work out.
More than 20 dragons – I collect them. There's also the computer and notepads filled with all kinds of interesting material, like who will be featured on my blog. Then there are the pages I'm typing. I write with a pen and notebook as well as on the screen. My desk is cluttered, but no one is allowed to touch it. I know where everything is.
Do you own an eReader? If so, have you downloaded your own book?
I've owned eReaders since they first came out in 1998 and I'm on my third one. Yes, I have downloaded my own books, but not all of them. There are a lot. I've been electronically published since 1998 and I embraced the technology early on.
