This is necessary because the man [Dean Koontz]doesn’t just write at a breakneck clip. He edits each page at least 20 to 30 times immediately after writing it. When the chapter is finished, he prints it out and starts editing those same pages all over again. “It’s fun,” he says.

    Here’s a link from the regular LA Times site that doesn’t seem to require registration:

    Thanks for the link — I keep hearing rumors that they’re going to stop the Calendar nonsense (which will also make their writers very happy…), but so far, the content is free to subscribers only. Not a problem for me as I’m a print subscriber, but it always makes me hesitant about linking to LAT stuff.

    Boo, that link doesn’t work for me I’m afraid! Any chance of “alternate access” or an emailed copy of the article – sounds like Koontz writes the same way I do, and seeing a full description of his technique would be invaluable. Thanks very much indeed!

    I don’t understand all this registration nonsense on newspaper websites either. Are they afraid of losing paper sales? Really aggravating for readers, especially for those of us overseas with no access to the printed version.

    Forgot to add, my email address is sfjones (at) hotmail.co.uk – cheers.

    VR’s link does work: just cut and paste the entire line. Make sure both lines is in the address window.

    Boo. I got a request to register even with the cut and paste link. 🙁

    I’m a big complainer to news sites about registering. Donymoe — if you need the article, let me know. I have it in text version. I think the LAT is worst on this point. Sigh.
