People ask me how many hours a day I spend writing and I never can give them
a straight answer. Some days I sit at the computer for hours on end, just
creating the story. (Usually this is when a deadline is looming.)
However, the truth of the matter is, I really hate to sit still for long
periods of time and I can find just about any distraction for getting out of
my chair. "Oh, I need to walk the dog." Or, "I should do this laundry."
Or, "I think I'm out of vanilla." Whatever. It's just an excuse.
In my defense, whenever I'm doing those odd chores, I'm usually working out
a knot in my plot. Even while driving or showering. (So watch out when you
see me heading your way in my car!)
Hmmm . . . maybe this is why some of my recipes have turned out so strangely
