I just posted the first interview on my companion site, Bookstrumpet, by the wonderful Lori Eads. It is with the author Sonia Singh, and it is worth checking out because she makes some interesting comments about writing, the writing process, and, specifically, her writing process.
She talks about how when first she starts writing, she writes everything in a journal, so as to subvert the Inner Critic. That way, she can convince herself and her critic that she’s not really writing a novel–she’s just fooling around in her journal.
She’s got three published novels to her credit, so apparently this approach works well!
Go check it out, I enjoyed it immensely.
