Q. WHAT DO THE WORDS “WRITER’S BLOCK” MEAN TO YOU?
Writer’s block is like ending on a cul-de-sac in the journey of your thoughts. The ideas stop flowing, and you can’t make progress in your story. The way to avoid it is to write whatever comes to your mind, even if it doesn’t make much sense at that point. The more you write, the more you unblock your thoughts.
Q. HOW DO YOU PROCESS AND DEAL WITH NEGATIVE BOOK REVIEWS?
Every person that gives a review is their opinion that doesn’t necessarily coincide with everyone else. From a negative review, I take what I can improve.
