I’m a little behind on getting this interview out! Yesterday, being the premier book signing for The Beauty Thief at Barnes & Noble, and after that working my “other” job, I was exhausted!
Today, though, I get the privilege of sharing an interview! Author E. Rawls won the week 3 #BlogBattle, themed Eggs. She is a fantasy author, all the way, who writes lovely, descriptive prose!
Elizabeth, my friend, thanks for stopping in to answer a few questions! We are excited to find out more about you! 🙂
1) For you, what is the hardest thing about being a writer? What do you do to work around/with it?
Hmm, I’d have to say the hardest thing is managing time. I have to set small, reachable goals for myself on a weekly or daily basis, and keep at it. I must avoid the temptation of spending too much time on social media and “research”. I try to limit myself on certain days, and then the next day take away those limits so I don’t go crazy, lol. 🙂
Haha, yes, “research.” 😉 That is a very smart way to go about it. Going completely crazy must be avoided at all costs. Of course, being an author, you have to be at least a little crazy.
2) Do you plan to always write fantasy? Why?
Yes, I do! Or maybe even a mix of fantasy and science fiction. 🙂 It’s the genre that first got me to love stories and books. When I read, I want to be taken away into another world that’s different from ours. Fantasy, and sci-fi too, is what feeds my imagination and writing spirit, otherwise I probably wouldn’t write.
That would be horrible! You need to write. I can tell. Don’t write to please the masses, my friend. I should just say, though, that your writing, if you love it, is sure to please the masses, whatever genre it may be! (I love fantasy, though, so I’m happy you’ll continue!)
3) If a lovely alien came to you and offered you the ability to write 100 Topping All the Charts Best Sellers but you had to give up having any interaction with other beings, would you take it? Why?
A lovely alien. 🙂 I’m trying to picture that right now. Is he cute and purple, and has a big smile? I would hug him and he would be my friend! 😀 LOL, I’m getting off-topic. *Ahem*, okay, back to the question: No way, nope, never. I value my friendships and bonds with others too much, and most of all with God. It would be pure misery without them.I know if God wants me to write 100 Top Best Sellers, then He will make it happen, and if not, then not. But I won’t take the offer from some alien. 🙂
