I'm in Portland, Oregon with Andrea and Dale. You might know Andrea from Andrea Johnson Photography. She won the 2003 Photo Award at the Book Passage Travel Writer’s Conference.
Anyway, she and I were discussing editor/writer or editor/photographer relationships as it pertains to a bigger picture. What is influencing an editor’s life and immediate thoughts when they respond to a query, etc. Andrea said, “There sure are a lot of psychological factors that influence the creative process.”

That sounded like a bigger discussion than I wanted to get into at 9pm so I countered with, “My creative process is easy. I need to see a movie, have a bender, or get laid—and then it all flows out naturally.”
She laughed. I was kinda serious.
