Back in May 2014, R G Dole of the blog, A Drip of Truth, featured an interview with yours truly. Here's a tiny snippet of what I had to say, coupled with a link to the full article...
"There’s only one word to describe me – a ‘pantster’. The truth is I am an ill-disciplined writer. I tend to dive in head first with the writing and then plan and outline as I go along. Often as not, the outlines become drafts in themselves as situations take shape in my head, and then dialogue starts spilling out of my characters’ mouths, so in many respects the outlining and planning is difficult to untangle from the actual writing.
"I find that writing has much in common with doodling, at least in the earliest phases. A lot of ideas emerge out of the ether when I just play around with half-formed notions that flit through my head. Occasionally, these crystallise into some kind of shape strong enough to grab my attention, and before I know it the doodling becomes serious writing."
