I’m trying to finish up a book at the moment, but I’ll return with the Q&A in the next day or two. In the meantime:
Joss Whedon podcast!
Alison Kent on the benefits of unsafe writing.
Also, in an interview about her role as Lois Lane, Kate Bosworth had this to say about acting (which I think applies quite nicely to writing, as well):
One of the things I love most about this job is I don’t feel you can ever master it. I think you’re always learning and you’re always growing. Even when you think you’re at the top of your game, there’s always something else you can do and learn. I think that if I wanted to fall into a niche where I knew I was really good at something, I could do that and feel secure there. But I don’t want to do that. I want to do things that will challenge me and I will be scared to do because I’m not the best at it, but I certainly want to do it to have that experience and to challenge myself and to be seen in different ways. I could sit there, do a cookie cutter job in a certain way and probably make money from it and do what people expect me to do, but that’s not what I want to do. If you don’t do what you want to do in life, then what’s the point?
