Pam, in one breath, youíve asked the questions I usually get from half a dozen different people.
1] Block: when I get stuck I try outlining a different sequence of events and an idea usually suggests itself.
2] Time at the keyboard: Iím not industrious. I try to work some every day, but a couple of hours is a long stint for me.
3] Environment: I have a place to work at home but I travel with a portable word processor and sometimes a change of scene seems to make writing easier for me.
4] How long have I wanted to write: as far back as I can remember.
5] Favorite authors and books: I canít begin to identify them. At the moment Iím reading Carson McCullers HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER, listening to a Patterson crime novel as I exercise and a book about American entrepreneurs in the car.
