Plot:  I am currently finishing  my newest novel and I have to tell you; the loosely built plot that I had envisioned when I began is gone by the way-side. Way, way off and into the forest, in fact.  About half way through the characters took me on a journey, making their own decisions, loving who they wanted to love, building their homesteads their way.  When this happens to me I welcome their story line in…they know better than I do at that point. My characters write a better story than I ever could.


“The last thing I want to do is spoil a book with plot. I think a plot is the last resort of bad writers. I’m a lot more interested in characters and situations; following where it goes. In Cujo I was as surprised as my readers when the little kid died at the end.”  Stephen King

“A poem begins with a lump in the throat; a homesickness or a love-sickness. It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”  Robert Frost
