Taught by his mother to love books at a young age, David A. Willson spent his childhood exploring magic, spaceships, and other dimensions. In his writing, he strives to bring those worlds to his readers.

Much of his material is inspired by the “Great Land” of Alaska, which he has called home for over 30 years. He lives there with his wife, five children, and 2 dogs. He is passionate about technology, faith, and fiction—not necessarily in that order.

I've dealt with writer's block in two ways. There are probably much better ways, but this is what has worked for me.

1) I outline. Using what some folks call the snowflake method, I outline little pieces of the plot in greater and greater detail, just to get some thoughts down and get the creative juices flowing. I then bounce to a completely different section of the story, and do the same thing with a different character, entirely different scene, etc.

2) I edit. I don't know about other writers, but re-reading what I've written and tweaking it is torture for me. I hates it, precious. This is pretty good motivation to back and write stuff.(less)
