“It’s friggin’ tough to be a writer. Yeah, you are born with an intrinsic gift but you learn to be a superlative writer. I’m talking about those scribes who take you on a roller coaster adventure with their intoxicating prose, riotous laughter, the ladies and gents who give you orgasmic pleasure with every sentence you take in, the suspense aficionados that take your breath away and leave you writhing for more. Ellery Adams aka Jennifer Stanley, Allison Brennan, Parris Afton Bonds, Ellen Byerrum, Harlan Coben, Mary Higgins Clark, Mary Jane Clark, Phillip R. Craig, Saranna DeWylde, Vivi Dumas, Joya Fields, Sara Humphreys, Miranda James/Dean James, Adam Kunz, Liz/Lizbeth Lipperman, G.A. McKevett, Tim Myers, Lynda Renham, Lisa Scottoline, Erica Spindler, Wendy Corsi Staub and Gayle Trent/Amanda Lee, Laura Bradford/Elizabeth Lynn Casey are such phenomenal storytellers. They bust their biscuits and nuggets to tell compelling tales that seem effortlessly plotted and they do it because they love what they do…or they are just bananas. They set the bar every single time. I am in awe of their gifts. They are absolutely extraordinary scribes. When folks think their writing profession is not working out, it’s not working out because it’s so friggin’ strenuous and these writers prove it can be done .” —Diane Morasco
Diane Morasco: Lynda, let’s talk about writer’s block. How do you deal with it? What are your tips and tricks?
Lynda Renham: There is only one answer to writer’s block in my opinion and that’s food. Not the best answer. I usually raid the fridge and cupboards. When that doesn’t work I go for a walk and then I write anything. There is usually some gold dust to be found in the debris.
