Here's an interview with me, on the blog of an old high school drama club cohort, Denise Vasquez:
A quick excerpt:
Q: What challenges do you face as a writer when writing your own book?
A: The biggest challenge is getting over perfectionism. First drafts are ugly and stupid and boring and weird, and you have to write them anyway. You can't get to the second draft without going through the first. So you have to stop judging whether your project is any "good" until you're a good 100 pages into it. And then, when you realize it isn't very good, you have to muster the desire to keep going and make it better, rather than just quit and go watch TV.
