Reconstructing Amelia was recently picked as the House Party Book Club’s official selection and I weighed in answering some reader questions. Here are my answers.
My favorite question and answer?
9) How do you beat writer’s block and that sometimes paralyzing fear of a blank page (or computer screen)?
Having very low expectations and not censoring myself. Meaning, I know there will be days when everything I write will end up on the editing room floor. That’s just part of the deal. It’s more important that I write something, even if it’s terrible. And there is no doubt that it will be sometimes.
