I know that's not helpful, but it's true. Now, sometimes, my imaginary friends (i.e. my characters) stop talking to me, but that's usually only for an hour or two. I don't really do anything specific to deal with it. I just go do something else for a while and then return to the book later.(less)

I love writing. I know some authors plan out their books with outlines and plot maps and character bios, etc. etc. Some have binders full. But I don't do that. I just write. I have no idea what's going to happen in a story when I start writing. I just go with it. And because of that, it's like I'm actually a reader. I discover what happens just like my readers do, and I love that. Writing just allows me to discover another story, but one only I actually know. That's the best part of writing to me. Learning another story. It makes it fun and interested. I don't know that I'd be able to write if I planned everything out. To me, the best part of writing is actually writing, and discovering a story as I go.(less)
