So many to choose from. When I write my Non-Fiction books it is in the knowledge that I may just be helping someone who has lived through or is living through what I experienced. I get so much positive feedback and that helps me move forward with my writing.

With my Fictional works ... I get to create people, characters, locations the whole 9 yards. I love the research, which I do a great deal of, I learn new things every day. For me that is the greatest joy of all.(less)

I tend to leave everything alone, I don't attempt to force my writing, that will always end badly. I use the down time to work on the marketing side of things. Facebook and twitter, my Author page etc. If that doesn't free me up, then I step away from the laptop, and I garden, clean, cook, anything but write. My muse can disappear for weeks at a time or longer, so when I do write I tend to go without sleep and go for it whilst it lasts.(less)
