Caleb Monroe Interviews me here.

Can you describe your creative process, from first idea to completed pages? I have a lot of ideas. Most of them are absurd and awful. But I do my best to get everything “down” somewhere. I've actually started using Google Documents to sort of build a portfolio of stuff I can pull from and store ideas. That way no matter where I am, there's always a place to put my ideas that's only a few clicks away. But generally, if I like an idea enough, and it feels like something I can do well, I'll try and write 22-30 pages worth of it. If I still like it, I start looking for an artist.

Caleb's the poor bastard I stole Noel from many moons ago.  He's a fantastic writer, and it's a pretty informative interview, if I do say so myself.
