I think it goes back to discipline. If I ramble on enough, draw idea charts with arrows connecting things, and sit and type long enough, something eventually will pop out.(less)

Writing is also a great source for helping me to come to understand things that may be bouncing around in my head. (less)

It was actually a good thriller as far as I can tell. Thrillers just aren't my favorite genre.

Jaye Viner I once took an anthropology class in college thinking it would be interesting. Let's just say, the class was a failure, but everything I wanted to know, I learned and enjoyed in Guns, Germs and Steel. In the same vein I'm considering reading 1491 and 1493 next. Also, I hadn't heard of Robert Jordan but thanks to your comment I looked him up. Thanks!

Thanks, that's good to know about the anthropology. I definitely need to read it.


Christine Hatfield thanks for being my friend
