Re-introducing Mr. Pat! or Oh Layton! Not Layton! Why Layton?

Q: Why do you write?
A: It helps postpone my inevitable physical and mental decay. Layton said that if he didn’t write during the day he felt like a lump of coal. I feel the same way but would change ‘a lump of coal’ to ‘the cover art for John Denver’s Greatest Hits Volume 2.’ It’s just something you’re naturally drawn to do isn’t it? Even when nothing happens and the act itself is literally making me ill I feel I must continue with it. There are many days when I dread the thought of sitting down and writing. It’s quite similar to the way I feel about eating. I really derive little pleasure from eating anymore, but obviously I must.

Q: Why do you think anyone will be interested in what you write?
A: I really don’t think about it - which doesn’t mean I don’t care. It just means that the interests of others has little affect on my approach to writing.
