A Minute of Time with Gabriele Goldstone

gabe-photoI have asked friend, fellow Anita Factor writing group member, and historical fiction author, Gabriele Goldstone, two questions:

Do you have a set writing schedule? What is it?

I write in the mornings. First I journal…this is my exploring time. Anything is possible. Some of my novel ideas started as journal writing. I give myself up to an hour for this. Then I head to my WIP [work-in-progress] and, depending what stage that is at, I proceed until early afternoon. Then I leave my writing, my computer, and get active.

Evenings are for reading or socializing…depending on what’s up. When I worked full time, I always did my writing first thing, so it’s become my habit.

I finally got around to reading Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyen. Great book! It’s set in Nazi times and focuses on a black jazz band. Awesome dialogue. Well-deserved Giller in 2011.

Gabe considers herself an explorer (reader), a gardener (writer), and a muller (as in mulling things over, preferably while walking). After years of rushing about madly, she’s embracing a slower, simpler life.
