Coming Soon – Inside The Author’s Head
As a bit of an experiment, I decided recently that it was time to try something new here at The Eloquent Page.
Regular readers will know I’ve said before that I love to read, but I’m not a writer. I’ll happily admit however that I’m more than a little bit in awe of anyone who does possess this rare ability. These are my rock stars, the storytellers and the word-smiths.
Unsurprisingly, I have an insatiable curiosity about what makes the creative mind function (if I had my way I’d love to rummage around in their heads and see what makes them tick. Sadly, I’ve been advised by my crack legal team that this sort of behaviour is generally frowned upon, at least in a literal sense).
I was watching television and an idea occurred to me. Why not ask as many writers as were willing, the same series of questions. If your familiar with Inside The Actor’s Studio then you’ll see that I’ve come up with a questionnaire based on a similiar format to the one used by James Lipton.
On the 9th July I sent out a call via Twitter and some lovely writery types replied. Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to share the results with you all. I think there is a nice cross section of responses. Some names you’ll recognise while others may be new to you. The key thing that they all have in common – a passion for writing.
I hope you enjoy.
