Time Magazine did an article wherein readers from around the world asked questions of best-selling author Nora Roberts. Whether you read her or not, like her or not, she’s considered the spokesperson when it comes to romance novels. It’s got to be a heavy load

Do you ever get sick of writing and want to try something else? —Ian Kachemov, Highland, MD
I have no idea what I would do if I wasn’t a writer. It is the best job in the world. I never get sick of it. I think you can get tired—I know I do—of the business around the writing, but not of the actual process of sitting down at the keyboard and working. If you don’t love it, I don’t know why you would do it, because it is very hard work. It is also solitary work—your butt is in the chair for many hours a day. But, for me, that is exactly what I want to be doing.
