At some point, when one realizes one wants to be a writer–a real, true, working writer–it then becomes apparent that one must write. Even when inspiration has flipped you off and it’s the last thing you want to do. What do I do? I make a go of it with pen and paper. I write very informally, almost as if I’m talking to myself. (“So, this is the part where character 1 finds out what character 2 has really been up to. She’s pissed and more than a little hurt…”–that sort of thing.)
But I really, really want to know: how do you do it? Because it’s buckle-down time for Lori, and I need the help, guys.
