- What discipline do you impose on yourself regarding schedules, goals, etc.?
When I'm at work on a book, my goal is to write a chapter a day, no matter how long it takes. A chapter may take as little as 1 hour. Or it might take 2, 3 hours or more. My goal remains: one chapter each day five days a week. I try to save Saturdays and Sundays for personal and family activities, but now and then I might go to my study to check my e-mail.
- Do you write on a computer? Do you print frequently? Do you correct on paper? What is your process?
I'd be lost without my iMac and iPad. I'm always in a create-revise-create mode; write-revise are no longer discrete phases of writing for me. I doubt that paradigm works for anyone these days.
- What has been your experience with publishers?
So far, good. My textbook editor at Taylor Francis, Naomi Silverman, has been a friend and a great help for 20 years or more. The people at Author House are great to work with, too.
