Since starting this blog I have received many wonderful e-mails and facebook messages offering support, encouragement and from time to time, asking questions. The two most common questions I get are, "What's your novel about?" and "Where do you come up with the stuff you write about?"
This video, more than anything I've seen and better than I could say myself, answers both of those questions. It was made by a member of the online writer's group I belong to. Her name is Dee Garretson, and she is a genius. Please pay special attention to the cupcake reference ... I have a scene very much like that in my novel.
