1. I sometimes get up in the morning eager to find out what happens in a story then realize–shoot–I have to finish writing it.
5. Everything is research–a trip to the coffee shop where I watch a young couple not speaking to each other, a walk through a park where I take note of places where it would be nice for a young couple to sit and make up.
6. The best revenge is making someone who has been nasty the villain in a story.
7. I sometimes look up from writing a summer scene and am disoriented by the fact it is winter outside my window. And visa versa.
So if sometimes I act a little strange you now know why.
