I’ve never experienced writer’s block. I enjoy writing. It is a passion. Someone asked me where do you get your ideas for a story. My answer is always the same, I watch people and when I see someone interesting, I look at the person from a distance and say, “Tell me your story, I’m interested.” My mind and the character do the rest. I move my fingers on a keyboard and get out of the character’s way.
In my forthcoming story, I was in a Mexican restaurant with friends. Across the room from us I saw a woman, alone, in a booth staring at her cell phone. She looked apprehensive. I had my story.
