I'm a librarian and an avid reader. Whether at work or home, I'm surrounded by books. I read using my phone, tablet, computer, Kindle, and of course, actual books. I talk about books and recommend them to library patrons everyday. I buy books for the Library and myself.
Despite being such a huge part of my life, the act of writing a book remains largely unknown to me. That's why I always enjoy the opportunity to glimpse into an author's creative process. I came across an article for The Guardian written by Kazuo Ishiguro. In it he explains how he wrote the Booker Prize winning Remains of the Day in only four weeks.
It's short read and well worth a few minutes.
