I wish that I had known back then that a mastery of process would lead to a product. Then I probably wouldn't have found it so frightening to write.
Oh, yes, I taught 13 and a half years. I taught English, first at a Catholic school and then at El Toro High School in Lake Forest, Calif.
The Pacific Northwest, and particularly Whidbey Island, is extremely suited to be a location in a novel.
Art can't be taught; passion can't be taught; discipline can't be taught; but craft can be taught. And writing is both an art and a craft.
Plotting is difficult for me, and always has been. I do that before I actually start writing, but I always do characters, and the arc of the story, first... You can't do anything without a story arc. Where is it going to begin, where will it end.
