I was talking with a friend of mine last night (Martin) about the writing process. I have always tried to find the answer to the question, Do you work from an outline or do you, as Robert Frost did, begin at the beginning and write until you have said what you wanted to say.
That question intrigues me, because it is at the heart of the writing process. Unless you have the answer to that question, you really can't proceed effectively. My thought for the night.
I passed the 80,000 word mark in Blood Moon. The end is near! I don't write from an outline, by the way. That's boring. It's nice to be surprised when you come to the end.

WHOA!!! Blood Moon Rising, Cooper's second in his trilogy, will be out at the end of March, maybe sooner! It's even better than the first ~ Cooper gets closer and closer to solving the mystery of his son's disappearance.
