I loved visiting Habs, thank you for inviting me! For me, the writing process involves: • carefully researching the topic • interviewing witnesses or survivors • spending time thinking about the characters and story • spending hours writing and achieving a state of creative flow • revising, revising, and revising some more
I haven't ever been in a writing "slump" but there are times when I am so exhausted from traveling and touring that my mind is not fresh enough to write or create. When that happens I have to unplug, rest, and recharge.
Please give my best to your librarian and everyone at Habs! :)
