The My Writing Process Blog Tour (#MyWritingProcess on Twitter) has been doing the rounds on the internet lately. Participating writers of all genres, backgrounds, and tastes have to answer the same four deceptively simple questions about how they approach the endlessly fascinating and diverse process of writing.I heard about it from Edith Hope Bishop, a young writer I met at Sirens last year....

“What was the good of dreaming of adventure if you turned your back on the first one that came your way?”
Delia Sherman, Firebirds: An Anthology of Original Fantasy and Science Fiction

“All my life I have written letters - to our mother, our relatives, a wide circle of friends and acquaintance, to my husband, to you. Correspondence has always been as necessary to my happiness as a well-cooked dinner, and I've found it more sustaining for its generosity: an act of charity that returned to me a hundredfold...”
Delia Sherman, The Porcelain Dove

“For me, creative energy is like an old-fashioned ground-water well. When the well is dry, it’s dry. I can dig all I like, and all I’ll get for my pains is sore hands, some very bad prose, and maybe (if I’m lucky) a few odd droplets of notes I can actually use. Or not. It’s usually not worth it. After many years, I’ve discovered that it’s better to wait until some ground water seeps back into the well rather than to try and lick up every drop as it emerges.”
