Base New York What’s the first information you consume in the morning? I open my eyes around 8:30 a.m., but I like to tiptoe into the day. So I lounge around in bed listening to NPR in the background. I like the sound of reporters’ voices. They are soothing. If anything earth-shattering has happened overnight, I’ll hear about it even in my semi-sleep. Then I check texts, email and Twitter, all from bed. What do you read or watch or listen to at the breakfast table? When I get up, I get coffee and skim the New York Post to see if anyone I know got themselves involved in a scandal. I don’t eat breakfast or have a breakfast table, but if I did, I’d have a morning show on in the background and be reading a magazine. I don’t like my news too instant; it’s like someone yelling all the time. I lean toward weeklies like Newsweek or Time . The information is delayed a bit, nonessentials are weeded out, sources have been checked. What a novel idea. What occupies your mind in the car, on the subway, train or bus? Stories. I just finished my first novel and am starting another, so I’m living in imaginary places with imaginary people all the time.
