    Wow I had no idea he’d written so much and such a wide variety of things. All I knew about were his Farworld books, which are the ones I want to win. I also posted about Writing Snippets on both my blog and on facebook. Hooray for multiple entries!

    • Jess Smart Smiley

      I had only heard of Farworld as well, but Jeffery sounds about as prolific and ambitious as they come! Very great interview. I love his thoughts on outlining—something I’ve been hearing from more and more writers lately.

      These episodes are getting better all the time!

        Thank you Jess- Jeff was brilliant and I wish I could put his brilliant-ness in a bottle and share it. Of course, all the Shadow Mountain Authors we have featured seemed to be brilliant πŸ™‚

      • Jess Smart Smiley

        Shadow Mountain has the corner on brilliant authors. (Also: if you DO happen to bottle any, could you share some with your e-friends? Wink, wink!)

      Hooray for multiple entries indeed- good luck Cara πŸ™‚

    Dang it, now I have to start outlining… I hate outlining things; but Jeff makes too good a point for me to argue with. Thanks for the great info and insights.
    Oh,I’ll go for option 1 – The Forth Nephite, as I haven’t read that one yet. πŸ˜‰

  • John D. Payne

    The trouble for me with outlines is that I don’t know how things are going to end. 😦

    My daughter loves the Farworld series. I’d love to read the Fourth Nephite. It was a great interview

  • Cara

    My process for writing a book is I usually start with a very basic I idea and a title, then I write a simple outline with the main points of the book, then I start writing and connecting the pieces of the outline. So far it has worked pretty good for me.

    • Jess Smart Smiley

      Cara—do your titles ever change when writing your first draft? How many drafts do you go through? Just curious.

  • Alex

    Ahh. The multiple entry, type. Drat. I haven’t a chance πŸ™‚ Best of luck to the winner. Which looks like Cara is in the running πŸ™‚
