    Characters often find themselves in situations they aren’t sure they can get themselves out of. When was the last time you found yourself in a situation that was hard to get out of and what did you do?

    • Great question Mai!

      I had to really think on this one. My mind immediately went to a dangerous scenario since I write suspense, but that’s not the case in real life. On a daily basis, life as a writer is not quite so adventurous for me. And that’s a good thing! I prefer the danger in my fiction.

      The last difficult situation for me involved an elderly neighbour. She accused me of something I did not do, and trying to defend and explain myself was fruitless. She was convinced I had swept wood chips in our joint driveway over to her side of the house. I finally walked away with her yelling at my back.

      Later on, she realized it was a squirrel that had climbed on her roof. It chewed away at her unprotected, wooden soffits. She apologized and I accepted her apology. End of story. For me, it’s always best to solve problems with civil dialogue, but when that fails … I walk away. Sometimes the squirrel gets away with it. In this case, it didn’t 😉

      Have a great day, Mai,
