Some scenes come to me while mowing the lawn, or driving between Virginia and New York. For example, the big "trial on the disk" scene in Star Riders came to me while driving to see my son and his family in Virginia. I arrived there late at night, and immediately spent about half an hour writing it all down so I wouldn't forget.(less)
