Nervous Breakdown

The Nervous Breakdown

The Nervous Breakdown is a truly unique website, focused on readers and writers, and featuring podcasts, book excerpts, online book clubs, and their famous Self-Interviews. They’ve published an excerpt from my story “The Boots,” and they include an interview where I try to answer the question ‘What does a writer do all day?’

“I suppose on a basic level a writer wants a lively setting, with perhaps lots of interesting things to look at and describe, with objects for the characters to interact with, and with a lot of potential for conflict. A circus is perfect for that. On the other hand, having some kind of enclosed space, where the characters can’t get away from each other, and where there is an element of danger, that works too. That’s why stories on boats and spaceships seem to work well. I have stories on boats, but not on spaceships, though hopefully that will change.”
