I really enjoyed talking about Saving Texas and Winning Texas to gracious and literate members of the Carolina Women’s Club at TPC Piper Glen. I found it interesting that most of the questions centered on secession, a central theme in both novels.
We talked about the long-lasting secessionist movement in Texas, the nation’s largest with reportedly several hundred thousand adherents. We also analyzed other, lesser known movements in California, Colorado and overseas, particularly Catalonia, the area of Spain that currently is asserting its independence.
The discussion also centered on how I write (not often enough!) and prolific writers like Stephen King.
In King’s classic nonfiction book, On Writing, he relates that he spends his mornings writing and his afternoons on the business of being a writer. He’s a great role model for many of us who procrastinate!
