I spent nearly two decades figuring out Eli Quinn, and as I began writing, he surprised me by evolving a bit. I tossed a lot of early pages and chapters and scenes and descriptions, because we didn’t know each other very well. Once I understood him, the writing got easier.

Quinn can be a stubborn SOB, and occasionally he thinks and says things that are just between us—and disappointingly unprintable. (less)

I prefer to write 4-6 hour straight, which usually yields a chapter, or at least a strong scene.
