Completing my series, here are ten questions that run through my mind while I’m writing:

1. Why does that brilliant idea from last night not transfer so well into my story now? 

2. Was I drunk when I wrote this drivel?

3. What inspired me to write such amazing stuff?

4. Is it any wonder all the “great” writers drank or did drugs? 

5. If I quit this insanity tomorrow, how soon would I miss it? (The answer is, “within seconds.”)

6. Have I used this name for a character before? It sounds familiar…

7. Should I keep this chapter? Or does it suck the way I think it does?

8. Who told my characters they could do that?

9. How the he** have I strayed so far from where I thought this was headed?
10. What happens next?
