That's the beauty of making a really good outline, chapter by chapter, showing where the characters and the plot elements come in and out. A lot of writers say you have to write every day. I market my own books, which is very time consuming, so by the time I get to sit down and write the book, I am raring to go.(less)

It's better than acting because you don't have to deal with stage fright, and you can visit your stories and make new ones whenever you want. Next, I love the research. You meet interesting people and learn a lot of cool stuff.(less)
