So, even if I don't create any specific "place" in my mind before I write, I've nurtured the "meta-space" where all those inner escapades happened---where I write "From"...(less)

Actually, I've never had writer's block...

Though, for those who do, I might suggest what my author friend Jane Watson suggests:

Get as deeply into what you're writing as you can---get as deeply into why your writing, too. If you're not completely committed *inside*, the words may not want to come out...(less)

Preparatory reading and note-taking are finished

I’m reading my last book (for the first time in four years) and appreciating what I did, while I take yet more notes (leading to a working outline)

Mind you, it had taken me quite a long time to write Notes from An Alien so it better be good :-)

Alexander Zoltai Hi, Ed :-)

The quickest way to tell you more about me is to direct you to my "About" page:

message 10: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Alexander. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
