Sarah asked Kasie West:

I have read most of your books, and I have loved each and every one. I was just curious HOW you come up with your ideas? Each of your stories is cute and sweet. I was also curious how long it takes you to complete a story? I am writing a book on Wattpad, and it seems to be taking forever haha. Thanks, Sarah :D

Kasie West Thank you! Glad you enjoy my books. I come up with ideas in a lot of different ways, whether it be a movie I've watched that sparks an idea or a place I've visited or a character that comes to mind that I want to see in a story. Sometimes I'll get a plot first and try to find characters that would grow the most in that plot. It takes me about 3 months to draft my first draft and then several more months to edit it. Good luck with your writing! The more you write the more ideas come to you (at least that's how it works for me).
