Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write between the hours of 3:00 AM and 5:00 AM. When I went to college I got a job sweeping floors in the book store. A book fell off a shelf and it was titled “How the great writers write” Mickey Spillane was the best selling author in the world. The man who wrote the book asked him how he wrote a novel a month. He said it was simple. I get up early in the morning and type 10 pages a day. I do that each day for thirty days. And that’s a novel. The writer asked what he did the rest of the time. Spillane said, I chase blondes, drink beer
and go fishing!
