When it becomes difficult, I have to put more thought into what I am writing. And since what I write can be rewritten, or even deleted, the point is that I have been able to work through the block. I might add that sometimes a person is simply physically or mentally exhausted, and perhaps it might be wise to skip a day from writing to get recharged. (less)

My three-day visit to North Carolina in October exceeded expectations. I knew some things about the city, such as the famous Biltmore Estate, and did some research on other places to experience.

Michael Thanks, Lara. Actually, there are several authors out there such as Richard Ford and Anne Tyler. But I hope that readers of all adult ages can relate to my "boomer lit" novels.
