But I have this brief opportunity to say thank you for the beautiful calendar, now on my office wall.

Q&Q (More)

And now back to reader questions. Heather Hannah Knopp writes:

“You’ve probably been asked this before, but what was your inspiration to write from Chet’s perspective? From the first few pages of “Dog On It”, and Chet was getting high from riding in the car with his head out the window, I was hooked on his storytelling and utterly charming POV. How do you “get inside” Chet’s head? (okay, that’s two questions, but I know Chet can handle up to 2 😉 )”
Answer: 1. Inspiration: One evening my wife said, “You should do something with dogs.” Twenty minutes later I’d written what became the first page of Dog On It. Just to see if it worked. We voted 2-0 that it did. (No kids at home at the time – we could have lost 4-2.)

2. Getting inside the head: I have no satisfactory answer to this. It has to do with the imagination, of course, but how to describe the nuts and bolts of the imagination at work? And is it always a good idea to look under the hood?

(And to the Plunderers: I love my calendar! Many, many thanks!)


Thank You, Plunderers!

A very nice gift from the Plunderers (a creative sub-group here at the blog) has arrived. It’s a 2015 calendar with a Snowhook theme, Snowhook being the wonderful racing team and kennel up in Willow, Alaska, that we’re very interested in. Many, many thanks! (photo credit – Rio)
