Stories are like snowflakes. Each is different. Writing is a great opportunity for us to express ourselves. What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? There’s a sign in my office, “Don’t Think. Just Write!” I should post this sign beside it, “Then Rewrite!” What is your favorite time to write? Writing is my job. I try to write daily between 9 and 5. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? Don’t think. Just write. What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? Still writing for young readers keeps me young or at the very least it keeps me feeling young. David A. Adler’s A Parade for Washington, illustrated by John O’Brien, is out now with Holiday House.
