Perhaps because I read Pride and Prejudice at a young age, or perhaps because Austen has written these two characters so completely that they feel like friends of mine, their relationship--their antagonism, the mis-readings and misunderstandings, the growing sense of respect and tolerance for each other's differences--feels just right. And who, at the end of all travail, wouldn't want to be enfolded in noble Fitzwilliam Darcy's arms.(less)

If I don't write them down immediately, they will disappear back into the vast ocean of ideas and images. So, when I'm writing a story, I take the character who appears, the action that shows up, the setting that lays itself out in front of my mind and I write that. It might not be the "right" set of words for that moment, but it can be used later! If there are no words that day, I paint.(less)

Possessed

To be possessed.
What does that even mean?
Am I possessed by an idea, by a feeling, a goal, a ghost?
When I began writing POSSESSION, I was thinking about The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, the novel in which a sedate widow moves to the seaside and occupies a house in which there's a ghost. I couldn't stop thinking about it.
You could say I was haunted by the idea.
Under what circumstances would a ghost start t Read more of this blog post »
