I have to stop and repair what I produce after every few paragraphs so I'll know what I wrote. Many of my errors defeat spell check, and might confuse me if I didn't correct them right away. On the bright side, though, this process makes me notice other things I could improve--word choices, sentence structure, etc. (And it certainly keeps me from making hot responses in social media.) So, even though it slows me down, all in all it may be making me a better writer.(less)

Where did that character come from?

I sometimes feel as if characters come out of nowhere, fully formed, in search of an author. A few positive, likeable characters have been inspired by real people, but even then, I make changes so I’m not actually putting person X in a book.

Antagonist characters are usually inspired by one specific trait or behavior I notice in an individual. I use that trait as a root from which to grow a charact

“Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you're working. Tell them it's research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone.”
