I was interviewed about my writing process in The Inklings which is a new magazine you can subscribe to via Human Parts. Here’s an excerpt. Read the rest by subscribing here. Thanks for the fun interview Qs, Steph! Though it looks like I forgot to answer the first Q so I’ll do it now. I don’t really begin projects with form in mind. I can say that WOMEN was NEVER written as a personal essay. I started it by writing brief paragraphs but didn’t know (choose?) it would be a novella. Once SF/LD bought it, Elizabeth and I brainstormed and decided the novella form would be perfect for it.
I also forgot to mention that I edited the most recent issue of Story Chord. I was told to choose one musician, one artist, and one writer. This is what I came up with.
