Novelist-trucker-teacher-father Dave Newman included some great lines in these responses to my interview questions. Excerpt, you ask?
On writing and the married life:
I didn’t ever plan on marrying. I figured it was an either/or situation. You
either wrote, which required hours of reading and writing, or you got married,
which required hours of marriage stuff, whatever that was. Then I found myself
in Vegas, getting married to a woman I barely knew, and I was unbelievably happy
about it. My wife is awesome, and she’s a great writer, and we support each
others’ writing in every way possible. It really speeds up the process to know
you have someone in the other room who wants to read your writing, not is
willing to, but wants to. We both have three published books now. We had a
combined total of zero books before we were married.
