  • I am writing a book. Or re-writing. For my job.

    When you write, no, let me re-phrase that, when I write, I go monkey-minded and A.D.D. for weeks at a time. I find that sorting through the chatter of the 40,000 ideas/day riffing through my head as sort of cosmic channel surf, and I am waiting for the close encounter with the muse hidden in the noise. If I am lucky I hear the signal and I allow it to drop down into my head and grab me.

    Then I am off. The words make themselves known to me.
