2017 Q&A: How does writing fit in with your daily life?

While I try to allocate a bit of time everyday to writing, it never works out that way.  Inevitably, I get tied up on a phone call or with another project and my writing has to take a back seat.  But, that doesn’t mean that the day passes without my giving some consideration to the book I’m currently working on or some idea I have for a future book.  It’s amazing how many ideas I come up with on the treadmill!  When I do have time to write, I find that sometimes I’m in the mood and sometimes I’m not in the mood.  If I’m not feeling it, it’s a total waste of time to sit at the computer and try to force it.  If I’m in the right mindset and feel the inspiration to write, I’ll use the time I’ve allocated and oftentimes more time than I’ve allocated.  It’s tough to stop when you have the creative juices flowing and you’re on a roll with what you’re working on.  That’s when I do my best writing.

2017 Q&A: What do your fans mean to you?

The fans are everything.  If it weren’t for them, what would I have?  What’s the point of a band playing to an empty house or a writer creating books for an audience that isn’t reading them?  I love getting feedback from the fans.  Sometimes that feedback is good and sometimes it isn’t so good.  Some people really like a certain book, and some people don’t like it.  As a writer, you take the good with the bad, but overall the fans are very encouraging even if they didn’t particularly like the book they just read.  It is very humbling to get accolades from the fans and to have them tell you how much they enjoyed your work or how entertained they were by the book.  It’s very rewarding as an author to know that you wrote something that brought a bit of joy to a reader’s day or gave them a way to escape the reality of the world for a short time.  I’m very appreciative of my fans and the support and encouragement they give me.  When I have my doubts about writing or continuing to write, they inspire me to keep writing and keep the creative juices going a little longer.
