When I am not writing, I am doing chores in the house, in the garden, in my woodshop, or walking my dog Max along Rattlesnake Creek or Silver Park, or shopping, or eating or sleeping or playing my trumpet. I don't count those non-writing activities as writer's block. Somebody has to do all that stuff. Right. Even writers. Notice that I intentionally left out Facebook, because I don't wanna talk about it.

When I am at my desk or my computer I might be performing a slew of writerly activities: Okay, here we go. All these count as writing. Reading, Editing, Plotting, Scheming, Outlining, Webpage building, Inventing titles, Inventing characters, Building book covers. Busy. Busy. Busy. I usually have four to five books under development at one time. Managing that is like herding cats.(less)
Adam James Living in an alternate universe. Call me koo-koo if you want, but I think that fiction is another dimension in which humans reside.
