This week we’re talking with author Jo Zebedee. She’s a science fiction writer who lives in Ireland. You can find her on Facebook, or on her website, https://www.jozebedee.com. She is also featured in the Clayborn Press book, Question of the Day: The Andre Polk Memorial Anthology.
First drafts. I hate them with a passion. I can’t, can’t, can’t plan. I have tried it and my brain will not cooperate. But I also like to know WHAT I’m supposed to be writing. So first drafts, where I don’t, are a torment. I always feel like I’ll never complete the book at some point (normally 20000 words in, or thereabouts).
Varied. My paying job comes first, of course, so it’s as and when I get a chance. But once I get a chance, I go for it, and can bang out 1000 words in about an hour. So even with limited time, I still keep building up those words.
