Even though I've proved myself wrong with each new book I finish. But there's something inside most writers, some niggling doubt, telling them that it's over, that we have no more ideas that would be worth writing, that our writing days are over. However, there's also a kernel of distinct almost-hidden truth that we know we can do it again. We just have to stop procrastinating, put our butts in the chair and do it. One of my editors once told me to write a sketchy outline if that's all I had to go on. That was better than sitting in front of the computer, hands hovering above the keyboard, with a blank screen staring back at me. Just start writing. And it's always worked.(less)

We may have an editor who advises us about what will and will not sell based on what we've written. However, we never have to take any advice. I'm not advocating that, mind you. I've had wonderful editors who have not only taught me how to write a good story but helped me make the story better than it ever would have been if I'd done it all alone, without them. But the ultimate choice is ours. And if we cannot find an agent or a publisher for our books, we can do it ourselves. An author can always publish their work, if that's what the author's goal is. No one can stop us.(less)

“She said nothing, refusing to meet his gaze. After a long moment, he released her.
“So that’s the way it is, then.” His words were not a question. The door closed quietly behind him, leaving her cold to the bone, hollowed out and empty. Leaving her alone. Just like always.”
