Practice Makes Perfect

Who influenced you as a writer?

Um… books.

At what age did you know you wanted to write professionally?

Yes.

If there was a novel about your childhood, who would write it?

Mark Twain

He’s dead.

That’ll take longer, then.

Practice your answers to interview questions, folks.

People expect writers to be articulate.

  1. LOL – “yes” is my favorite! Although I might have said “uh, no?” instead.

    But I hear you: I’m always impressed by how articulate the authors are who are interviewed on, say NPR. Then I realize that gee, they’ve probably been answering these same questions for a while, practiced this, and -gasp- even planned ahead!

    Bonus: I imagined doing an interview like that myself, and the pretend interviewer asked about my POV characters. And I realized at that moment that I had too many POV characters to describe in an interview, and worse, I didn’t know what to say about them. Wake up call! Now I’m down to three POV characters and have a *much* better idea of how to describe their different perspectives and what they bring to the story.
