“I’ve been writing for the past 25+ years. I love writing. I enjoy the experience of coming up with a storyline, then finding out where it’ll take me up to the end. It’s like running a marathon. It’s not going to end quickly, because it’s a process. A writer must be fully committed for as long as it takes to finish it. But in the end, the reward is there.”
