By William Seidman Richard Grbavac and I had fun recently answering some interesting questions posed to us by Riffle, a blog about books. Read it to see our answers to questions including:

  • What is the trait you most admire in yourself as a writer? What is the trait you most deplore?
  • What do you do to get ready to write every day? What’s your routine?
  • What’s your favorite method of procrastination?
  • What is something unusual you’ve learned while researching a book?
  • What’s your latest obsession, literary or otherwise?
  • What is that one book that has been on your “to-read” list for a long time but you still haven’t gotten around to?
  • What book (in the history of books) do you wish you had written?
  • What book are you raving about right now (aside from your own, of course)?
  • What author or book never fails to inspire you?
  • What do you do to get ready to write every day? What’s your routine?
  • What’s your favorite method of procrastination?
  • What is something unusual you’ve learned while researching a book?
  • What’s your latest obsession, literary or otherwise?
  • What is that one book that has been on your “to-read” list for a long time but you still haven’t gotten around to?
  • What book (in the history of books) do you wish you had written?

The question we’ll answer here is the last one, If you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?  Rick said “Slow down and enjoy the ride.” And he meant it. For all our answers, visit Riffle.  ]]>
