"As to what I'd do on the 28th.... i'm at the beginning of a new novel, from which i'd read, but also talk about process--such things as where to start, etc. pacing, etc. all that stuff. And when to move from the small arena where you begin to the larger one of, for lack of a better idea, why bother doing a book in the first place, unless...?"
