Where I Let Others Do The Talking

I just finished editing a manuscript I’d been working on for over a year. So I thought I would write a post about the process, all navel-gazing and deep and everything, but then I was getting bored with myself just thinking about it all. And I really didn’t want to make you suffer through all that.

So instead, I thought I would link to an interesting set of interviews on Rod Norman’s blog: one with author Josh Gaylord of Hummingbirds, and one with Megan Abbott of Bury Me Deep (this one’s nominated for just about every award—and very deservedly so). These authors are married, which gives the interviews an interesting angle, but I was mostly struck by how humble they both are. Reading their answers, I came away feeling better about my own writing somehow.

Anyway, don’t hang around here—go read these interviews. Not YA, but still. Great stuff.
