What do you like best about writing?
Ninety-nine per cent of all the words I’ve written over the decades have been oriented towards highly technical, scientific reality. Writing it was boring, hard work, but I always liked what I’d written when it was done.
One per cent of all the words I’ve ever written have been fiction. Writing them endowed me with pure joy, accompanied by excitement, surprise, laughter and even tears. Whenever my written thoughts become a completed novel, I marvel over my make-believe masterpiece.
