Oops. The first link to the Author Spotlight post is no longer working. Here’s a revised one (please try it):
I’ve had the honor of being interviewed by Marni Graff, author, editor, and blogger. She’s a writer whose style and skill I admire, so it means a lot to me that she wanted to ask about my books and my writing habits. You can find the interview (after midnight tonight, the 27th) and learn more for yourself at http://auntiemwrites.com/2018/07/27/robin-minnackthe…authorspotlight/
I’ve just upgraded my site. You can now find me simply by using
For at least a while, the old url will work, but the above is the new correct one. Thanks for following! I’ll be back soon.
“Whenever I have endured or accomplished some difficult task — such as watching television, going out socially or sleeping — I always look forward to rewarding myself with the small pleasure of getting back to my typewriter and writing something.”
“I write for the same reason I breathe … because if I didn’t, I would die.”
“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.”
All three of these quotes are from Isaac Asimov, writer of over 500 works in fields as diverse as science fact, science fiction, religion, and mystery. (Hmm, diverse but not unrelated.)
I can relate to all three of these statements, as well as the fact that Asimov was indeed a generalist. If he wanted to write about something, he did.
And that’s the kind of writer I am.
What kind are you? Do any of these quotes describe you and writing?
