I love these answers I've been getting. Next week I'll be at the Saints and Sinners Literary conference in New Orleans and hope to come up with a bunch of new
questions. Of course, I'd love to be able to sit around with everyone
and exchange ideas, but considering how far flung everyone is, that
isn't possible - yet.
What I love about writers - they have a lot of interest in the world around them. They observe. They mull things over. They ask "What if?" And with rare exceptions, the answers they come up with are hopeful. Yes, there are the famous curmudgeons,
but most writers, despite being introverts, and fascinating people themselves. How can they help it? They're artists.
