If I'm restless, I read a favourite book because I find that they always inspire me to write. If I am in the middle of a manuscript and I get a block, it generally means that I don't have enough information, so I go out and look for information. But if I can’t get out – eg. I’m in a plane or a boat – I will start writing nonsense for a paragraph or two. This usually untangles my mind and helps me continue to write.(less)

He would come home with sprains and bruises, but he loved the sport so much he represented his school a few times in competitions. Writing is a bit like that. I get emotionally bruised and hurt by rejection, I get discouraged by people who brush my work aside because they read the blurb and decided that I am another Kipling wannabe. But I still write on because it is fun. In fact, I enjoy the process so much I have a website to put up my stories for free.(less)
