Q: How often do you think about writing during a day?
A: Some days, when all the background noise of daily life gets in the way, I guess I don’t think about writing that much. Other days, when there’s a bit more space, I think about it a lot, playing with ideas in my head, coming up with scenes and dialogues. There’s probably a lesson there: to write you need to give yourself time to let the words and ideas flow. As someone once said, “You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
