SSF: Tell us a little about your writing process. Do you work better in the morning or night? What music do you listen to while writing? Where do you write? What do you drink while you write?
J.B: I keep a writing schedule where I write Sunday-Tuesday. If I write on additional days, awesome, but I have to write on those days. When I write poetry, I don't listen to music at all. When I write fiction, I'll listen to The National or Bon Iver. When I write, it is in my living room unless I am not at home, then it is where I can open my net book and write. I write sober but I will drink Red Bull or other stimulants.
