David Staniforth asked Andy Weir:

Fantastic book; my best read of 2014. I would like to know if "The Martian" was written in its published form from the outset, or did you experiment with various ways of telling the story?

Andy Weir No I pretty much wrote it straight through as you see it. I didn't have a lot of rewriting or cut material.
