    Good Day, Sir. Mitch Albom! I am Shannen Faderoga a student of Saint Michael’s College of Laguna , Philippines. I’ve just finished reading your book – -Tuesdays with Morrie; to be honest I am not that much of a bookworm, Sir, but after reading your work, it inspired me to read more. If I may, I would like to ask a few questions:
    *Where do you get your ideas?
    *What is your writing process like?
    *What advice do you have for writers?
    – – That would be all, Thank you!

    Hi Shannen,

    Thanks for your questions. Here are my answers, in order:

    1. Ideas:
    I tend to choose WHO I know as much as I might choose to write “what I know.” For inspiration, I look to the moments in my life when I was overwhelmed by emotion. And then I think what was behind those moments–is it something universal, that others might feel? If the answer is yes, I look to create a story from that moment.

    2. Writing process:
    I wake up early and I write. I don’t watch or read the news. I don’t like the outside world in yet. Only coffee. A lot of coffee. And then, I write.

    3. Advice
    Writing always begins with a story. This is a talk I gave to my colleagues at The Detroit Free Press. I hope you find useful tidbits here: http://www.mitchalbom.com/on-writing/

    Are you a writer? What advice would you give to others?

    your friend,
    Mitch
