Today’s question: Did you ever say “I quit”? If so, what happened to make you come back to writing?
I never really quit, but between living in Albuquerque, NM and the first ten years living in NC, I didn’t write anything. Most of my writing inspiration comes from dreams and I’d still write down ideas on occasion. Then one night, I dreamed of this girl, a blonde swimmer, and a scene in high school. From that, I created Lori, and her story became the first book in my five book series, The Circle of Friends. So, you never know what will bring you back to writing.
