What you need to have in order to write a darn good novel

Got a life?

In order to write, you need to have a life.

You do have one, even if you're trying to make the family's ends meet. You don't have to run with the bulls in Spain or get killed in a Greek civil war. Be mindful of your own life: the drama, the people, the symbols, what people are working through, how they do things.

That's all fodder for the mill.
