Researching… not unlike shopping–really!  I’ll browse and read and browse and read some more.  Then, sometimes, suddenly, aha! there is a tidbit of information that catalyzes thought (and plot).  Other times, a slow coming to realization occurs.  Soon a character is living in imagined time and space.  That’s when my fingers hit the keys.

    I like this pithy observation! I might follow your lead and not feel like I have to write lengthy posts all the time. As we know, lengthy blog posts take time away from our real work!

      Yes, for sure.

      The blog, I guess, is a way to balance the solitude of writing with the community of writers and readers.
