bronaghsaurus asked: I came across your short stories about a week ago, and I read most of them in one night! Damn, they got me so excited. Anywho, I was wondering do you just sit down and beat one out (no pun intended) in one sitting or do you take time to plan, and redraft and blah blah?

More often than not I start story ideas on my phone, often on my morning commute and then let them germinate for a while, then come back to them days/weeks later and finish them up. I don’t redraft short works.
