This is a tough topic for me. I went back and searched for my entry on which famous author I wanted to meet but could not find it. It must have been during that period in time when my computer had crashed and I was unable to post. I think I would want to meet R.L. Stine, his books have been captivating children for ages. I remember devouring them when I was younger. Now my children read every one that they can get their hands on.
The first question I would ask would be “How did you manage to have such longevity in your writing career?” The past few years I have been having problems getting a book to completion. I know a big part of that is that I feel like my writing isn’t good enough. If it were then my books would certainly do better.
That leads me to my second and third question. “Do you have any tips for how to handle negative reviews/comments about your work? How do you overcome your own doubts about your abilities? (should you have any)”
I think answers to these questions could be quite useful not only to myself but to many other authors out there. But these are questions that could be asked of any author. How would you answer?
