Okay, today’s video from Nora Roberts isn’t so much “Advice to Writers” as it is talking a little bit about her own process.  This Video Saturday is from her talk at the Washington Post to an audience of over 500.  Nora Roberts has written more than 209 romance novels.  She also writes hard-boiled futuristic mysteries as J.D. Robb but has also written under the pseudonyms of Jill March and Sarah Hardesty.  As of 2011, her novels had spent a combined 861 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List, thats like 16 years!  And of that, 176 weeks were in the number-one spot!  Hmm, maybe I SHOULD pay more attention to her process.
