Welcome to the Q & A portion of the blog. Today we have the lovely and talented Jennifer Lane in the hot seat for her 6 questions.
- If you could choose three people to invite for a dinner party, who would they be and why? Buddha, Abraham Lincoln, Brené Brown
- What is the most surprising thing you discovered while writing your book(s)? I was most surprised that I had so much to say! My first novel was over 200,000 words, more than double the length of a typical novel.
- What was your favorite part, and your least favorite part, of the publishing journey? My favorite part of publishing has been meeting fun, cool readers and writers. I have also loved learning how to become a better writer. The help of professional editors like the amazing Jessica Royer Ocken has been invaluable. Still, there’s so much to learn! My least favorite part has been unleashing my competitive nature onto the publishing journey. I want to worry less about marketing, sales, and comparisons.
- What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk? According to my friend, I make all kinds of faces as I write. I act out the characters’ emotions to try to get them just right, and apparently, it looks rather ridiculous to innocent bystanders nearby!
5. What advice would you give a new writer, someone just starting out? Your first manuscripts will likely suck. But stay with it! And be sure to hire a great editor if you are self-publishing.
- What is your work schedule like when you are writing? My day job as a psychologist is rather consuming, so I write only on the weekends. When words are flowing, I write about four to five-thousand words in a weekend.
