Christopher G. Moore Updates: 2 May 2014

Dear Readers,

This week I have written an essay to answer some of the questions that I and other writers are often asked during interviews, dinner parties, or panel discussion. Typical questions are about the writing process. Readers are interested in the details of where a writer works, what he reads, when he works, and the process of writing a book.

I have outlined my personal process that I use for two very different kinds of writing: non-fiction essays and fiction.

If you are thinking of writing a book, you might find one or two useful ideas about the process by reading Beagle Sailing Lessons for Writing here.

It was with considerable sadness that I learned on Thursday 1st May of the discovery of the body of fellow Canadian author, filmmaker and journalist David Walker who had been missing since 14th February.

The Phnom Penh Post reported:

“According to Major Pheng Pich, deputy chief of the provincial technical and scientific police unit, a body identified as that of Walker was found in the forest some 200 metres from the entrance to the ancient Angkor Thom temple complex, a popular tourist destination.”

Dave was a long-time friend. He will have been known to many of you. Keep his memory alive by remembering his humor, dedication and talent.

Best,
Christopher
