Digger Cartwright Interview 2013 Part 2: Question 10
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
I’ve got a pretty busy schedule all the time between business and writing. There really isn’t much free time outside those activities. I’m pretty much either working or writing sixteen to eighteen hours a day. Granted, most of my time is consumed by business. I don’t really consider writing to be work. What’s the old saying that if you enjoy what you’re doing you’ll never work a day in your life. It’s very true.
So, outside of that, I do like to golf a little bit. I won’t be on the tour anytime soon, but I do enjoy getting out to the course for a nice round in the fresh air, away from the phones and hustle and bustle of life. I like playing different courses throughout the country. Each course is unique in some way, so it’s a new experience each time.
I go to WWE events when my schedule permits. It’s really great entertainment for me, and as you may know, I am THE Best Dressed Fan in the WWE Universe. I’m a lifelong member of the WWE Universe, so I’ve got commitments to watch RAW on Monday nights, Main Event on Wednesday, and SmackDown on Friday night.
I love falconry, but sadly I haven’t dedicated as much time to it as I would like.
I do enjoy a good meal at a nice restaurant. Eating is one of the few pleasures in life, so might as well enjoy it. Much like playing different golf courses, trying new restaurants is a unique experience each time. However, I do find myself gravitating more and more to the restaurants that I know and love. Why take a chance on the unknown when you’ve found something you like?
But ultimately, no matter where I go or what I do, my mind is still active and still engrossed in whatever manuscript I’m working on at the time. It’s not uncharacteristic of me to be sitting at dinner or out on the golf course and pull out a notepad to jot down some notes. I can’t get my mind to completely let go of whatever I’m working on, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Some of the best ideas have come up at the most interesting times and places.
