I love being in the zone...when the words just flow effortlessly as if I'm just the vessel through which information is pouring...which, of course, is all I am when I do it right. Time just disappears. Then, I do a word count, and it is thousands more than where I started. Or I'll read something back to myself and think, "Wow! Did I just write that?" Love that feeling.
3) What are some of the challenges your main character faces in "The Unknown Mother"?
Wrenne is facing the challenge of questioning everything she knows to be true--especially what she knows about herself--having to embrace not only the unknown but the unknowable as well. Her journey is one that begins with an act of grace and continues on her faith. It's not an easy path as anyone on a spiritual journey can attest. We are not conditioned to be comfortable with "not knowing." We like things we can label, define, and categorize, and that come in pretty packages. When we begin to ask who we really are, words no longer suffice and every package is just too small. Wrenne doesn't always trust the mysteries with which she is presented.
