Writers are insular, they live in their own world, the world they create for themselves. This is why we don't see Tom Pynchon interviews, the guy is in his own zone of thought. He doesn't know how or care to swim through.

True, Frank. Oh, okay, there's exceptions. Some talented writers seem to be in "on" mode most of the time, but I can't say they're the majority.

Most authors (published writers) I've met are laid back, witty, charming, & get a maniac glint in the eye when conversation approaches something interesting.

But I know that when I've got a project running around the back of my head, it's possible I'll zone out & start seeing far horizons, which can really put a crimp in a romantic date -- well, then there's being able to instantly recall my entire cast of characters, yet get stuck at my wife's name....
