Author Interview on Morgen Bailey’s Writing Blog

MorgenI’d almost forgotten about this interview I did for Morgen Bailey.  Morgen is a prolific writer with a website that offers fresh material daily.  You should check it out.

Most of Morgen’s questions are related to the writing process itself so if you want to see my take on that, here’s a small excerpt from the interview:

Creating main characters usually just happens–I often have a character in mind before I really know what their story is.  If a name doesn’t just come to me, I might go to a baby book, but that’s only if I’m really stuck or need a name for a less important character.  For developing and keeping track of those characters, I find some kind of form helps–one where you fill in things like hair color, strengths and weaknesses, what kind of car they drive, etc.  For more in-depth characterization I like free writing in a notebook about them.  My most successful attempts have been when I did the free writing from the character’s point of view talking about themselves and their thoughts and backgrounds.
