Do you plot, plan, outline? Or, do you just go where your characters lead you? Why?...

...Seems like a straightforward set of questions, doesn’t it. But in truth, the answer’s not so simple. On more than one occasion, I’ve overheard established authors referring to their novels as “their babi... Read more of this blog post »

Henry Miller on Writing by Henry Miller
“I didn't dare to think of anything then except the "facts." To get beneath the facts I would have had to be an artist, and one doesn't become an artist overnight. First you have to be crushed, to have your conflicting points of view annihilated. You have to be wiped out as a human being in order to be born again an individual. You have to be carbonized and mineralized in order to work upwards from the last common denominator of the self. You have to get beyond pity in order to feel from the very roots of your being.”

“You fell off the tree of fucked-up-weird and slammed every branch on the way down.”
Vincent Zandri, Moonlight Falls: Dick Moonlight

“Maybe I didn't know her as well as I might have wanted. But I can tell you this: love mattered a great deal to Scarlet Montana. I think it must have mattered to Jake too. Because if love hadn't been important to them, they wouldn't have fallen to pieces when it suddenly abandoned them.”
Vincent Zandri, Moonlight Falls: Dick Moonlight

“Because when it comes to memories, what counts is not accuracy, but the feelings they call up.”

Williammaltese Vincent. It's always my pleasure to run across another author, especially one with your impressive credentials. Although, as you've probably noted, I've not exactly been reading a lot of books, these days. Like you, I seem to find it hard to find the time, although you're admittedly doing better than I am. Anyway, glad to meet you. Don't be a stranger!

Jennifer Can I only get your books on a Kindle? or is there a place I can get a copy for my Nook?
