Love is easy, and I love writing. You can't resist love. You get an idea, someone says something, and you're in love.
Like every beginner, I have thought you could beat, pummel and thrash an idea into existence. Under such treatment, of course, any decent idea folds up its paws, turns on its back, fixes its eyes on eternity, and dies.
The best scientist is open to experience and begins with romance - the idea that anything is possible.
My stories run up and bite me on the leg - I respond by writing down everything that goes on during the bite. When I finish, the idea lets go and runs off.
