Before our first meeting, please sit down and take a leisurely look at the attached list of questions (there are a lot of them) - more than once, if possible, and at different times of the day. Don't feel you need to provide written answers - we will talk about them during our initial meeting - but if any of them incite the desire to pick up a pen, please do. Also make note of any questions that spark special interest - maybe because they address particular impediments you are facing vis a vis your current literary baby, maybe because they highlight overarching issues involving your writing life. If this document generates other questions you'd like to address, bring those to the table. PLEASE NOTE: Thoughtful inquiry will form the foundation of our collaboration; the more thought you give these questions before we meet, the better.
