      • Of course. In my published books so far, maybe it's a minor character here or there or a phrase or situation I've been in. Like the Paris store merchant scene in Awake in Elysian Fields really happened to me. And the twins in that book are based on my own. All the little kids (except Elyse) are based on kids I've actually known in my life. My next book goes a bit more close to home in the setup situation for the book. Actual life experiences, but that's a major jump for me.

      • Who doesn't? For me, I get up, walk around, and go about menial tasks while I keep thinking through the block, the issue or the scene that is troubling me. I always keep my phone close at hand so if and when the inspiration strikes or I get through the block, I can jot down ideas (sometimes vague, sometimes full scenes) and then transfer them to my manuscript the next time I can sit down. Just keep writing, just keep writing.

      • Joss Whedon, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and James Marsters (Joss and Lin because they are brilliant writers and I can't get enough of their work and I'd just like to soak in the amazingness of their wordsmithing; James because he's hands downs my favorite actor. I would just love to talk to him.)
