I'm not a happy camper if I'm not writing fiction steadily, but I've never found time or discipline to write it daily. From mid-2019 until recently, I couldn't seem to write fiction at all. My day job requires crafting non-fiction, business materials, and documents that come from a different part of my brain. I let my fiction brain idle too long and it closed up and wouldn't let me back in. My characters stopped talking to me. I felt I'd lost them. I got out of that stalemate by putting myself on deadline. Because I wanted to apply for a residency that required a writing sample, I read the fragments of my second novel to see if I could use any of them and that made me fall back in love with that book and those characters. They aren't yet babbling away to me in the middle of the night, but they are stretching from a long sleep and coming back alive. I never felt "blocked" just "estranged" from my book. I'm making amends and hope she'll welcome me back so we can finish the task. (less)

I love character development, throwing "what if's" into the dark when I can't sleep at night and inviting my characters to talk to me. I often have to let them drag me in directions I didn't mean to go. If your characters are well-conceived, they will take on lives of their own. That's fascinating to me. I also love revision. It's like sculpting, trying to extract the essence of what I was trying to do from all the excess verbiage surrounding it. Trying to get just the right word, and the right order of words. When I think I've found it, that's magic.(less)
