You sit with your notebook, and after a while something begins to interest you. The poet William Stafford described it as being like fishing: you throw out your line and wait for a little tug. Maybe all you get is a minnow, three or four words that seem to have a little magic, and even that can be enough to get writing started. And a minnow can be pretty good bait for bigger fish.
The Meanest Flood
The sixth novel in the Sam Turner series.
This is a great read, and it confirms John Baker in his position as one of the best modern-day writers. Mike Jecks, novelist.
