So just how do you go about writing that  GREAT NOVEL the world is clamoring for?

The Wall Street Journal recently asked a series of  well regarded authors that very question (Junot Diaz, Kazou Ishiguro, Richard Powers).

The article provides a humorous  examination into how these steely minds go about the business of turning out a book. The link is here.

In my case, I simply blast  Diana Ross’s  “The Boss”,  get  hopped up on Snicker bars and Roy Roger Chicken sandwiches, and watch some movies for inspiration.  After that the words just flow  right out of me .  This method apparently also worked for Nabokov .
