Writers are all different, as I’m sure you’ll know if you hang out with them. Different in interests, different in method and different in inspiration.
Despite knowing that, I am sometimes puzzled by what other authors say about their writing.
A great example was a writer who said he could never imagine a physical space like a house. I guess that has to sound odd to a speculative fiction writer, because we make up pretty much everything we can! But I suppose that is one of the things that determines what genre/s you end up in…
How your imagination functions.
