Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Living! I find doing what I enjoy adds a dynamically generative energy to my life and living. I wake up and hit the floor running; curious about what I can create or contribute today. I often ask, 'What else can I add to my life today?' and it's about adding more and more so that I always have a wide choice. I don't have a desire to retire; I'm not looking to take a break from my life, it's more about asking, 'What else can I add that I've not even considered yet?'
What is your writing process?
I like to get up early in the morning and write. In the afternoons I will often go for a coffee and then a walk along the bay, near where I live. I print and take any recently written material to the coffee shop and review, correct and hand write additional copy, which is then ready to be added to the manuscript the next morning. It is this system that allows me to add to the book each day. My idea is to do something for me; for my projects each morning, before I do any other work.
