The best way if I'm stuck writing a scene is to ask myself what my character wants then place an impediment in his/her way.(less)

An event in the past leads into the present or vice versa. I planned the dual time lines separately, but wrote them together, a chapter each, I didn't worry about dividing the word count and just let the story and characters decide.(less)

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? ... It's the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower of life, even if it's a cactus.”
