The block usually works itself out, most often just as I'm about to fall asleep at night, so I always have a notebook next to my bed to jot down my thoughts in case I can't remember the next day.(less)

And having a good excuse to read as many books as you like in the name of "research". No one criticises a writer for ignoring chores and picking up a book instead in the middle of the day!(less)

“One thing my recent experiences had taught me was to never assume that the mask we show in public is the same face we wear behind our own front door.”
Dawn Goodwin, The Accident

“The best thing about being a writer is the ability to live vicariously through your own imagination, with no boundaries as to how you behave on paper. And having a good excuse to read as many books as you like in the name of "research".”
Dawn Goodwin

“Every character I create begins with a personality trait or eccentricity and, like each of us, I add layers to the character – some good; some bad – until I have a multi-dimensional person who is real enough for the reader to believe they have met them or known someone just like them in real life. Some of these layers may be based on a trait I have recognised in someone I have known, whether it is a mum in the playground or a man I have sat next to on the train, but none of them are real people.”
Dawn Goodwin, Best Friends Forever
