Keeping the Inspiration

meLiving in this big old house, it is sometimes difficult to keep the inspiration to write a compelling book, a troubled book. Great authors have said you have to be troubled deep within to be a good writer. I don’t ever want to believe that.

So what do I do? Foreign films, artistic films, a lot of reading.

I sometimes fall in love with the characters I see and the characters I read about, reaching out to them, holding on to the memories I create. Thank God for those memories, those dreams, those books.
