well mam how do you get ideas for a perfect novel to start with i have a great interest in novels reading and writing but since the conservativeness of my family blocks it so what should i do?
They do say, "write what you know." It's a good place to begin. After a while you learn how to fictionalize, if fiction is what you want to write. I also read a ton and get inspiration from other writers! I read fiction and How To Write books. Also, simply free-writing every day can stimulate your creativity. I hope this helps.
Is there a not so obvious reason why Ms. Rose is not more sought in movies and on Broadway? She is amazing, talented, smart, beautiful, educated. I don't get it.
You used to shop in my store on Park St. in New Haven when you were at Yale.
Glad you are doing well. I'm in NY, married w/two great kids! Keep in touch.
