+ If I'm not at my desk by 4AM I feel like I'm
missing my most productive hours. In addition
to starting early, I keep an antique hour glass
on my desk and every hour break briefly to do
pushups, sit ups, and some quick stretches. I
find this helps keep the blood (and ideas) flowing.
+ I suppose discussing books in the classroom
also helps me to analyze good fiction and incorporate
similar themes into my own work.
+ In many ways, editing yourself is the most important
part of being a novelist.. carving away superfluous
text until your story stands crystal clear before
+ For every page in a published novel, I wrote
ten that ended up in the trash.
+ The toughest part was believing in the story
even when things were going badly.. forcing myself
to spend 5 to 8 hours a day on the manuscript
even when I wasn't positive I could make it work.

is a lot like making maple sugar candy. You have

use of the "delete" key.
+ I am so busy writing I have almost no time to
read anything other than non-fiction and research
+ The all-time best "gift book" has
to be a leather-bound copy of the Oxford English
Dictionary. How can you go wrong?
+ It's important for authors to use the Web responsibly.
More than half the information out there is garbage.
And it's important to realize that just because
it's on the Web doesn't mean that it's a fact.
