I write every morning as soon after first light as
possible. There is no one to disturb you and it
is cool or cold and you come to your work and
warm as you write. You read what you have written
and, as you always stop when you know what is
going to happen next, you go on from there. You
write until you come to a place where you still
have your juice and know what will happen next and
you stop and try to live through until the next
day when you hit it again. It’s a never ending cycle.
