Wendy wanted to know who their favorite character to write was, and why.
Jennifer S. is interested in writing routines and time frames - how long did the book take to write?
Susan W. wonders about their favorite kind of writing.
Jules asked, "Does the toilet paper roll go over the top or...?" (This really can tell a lot about someone, you know.)
Joylene brings another important one to the table. How does one maintain their faith and keep going after many rejections?
Arlee wants to know, "When is it time to give up on an idea, if there ever is a time?" Robyn voices a similar thought, particularly if the project has years invested in it.
Marja wonders what the biggest struggle in the writing process is.
"What do they do to relax?" Hilary asked something I was wondering too.
Here's another good one. Jennifer B. asks,"If your life could be summed up in a book title, what would it be?"
Warren says, "What do you read? How do you research? How do you keep track of your ideas, thoughts, notes?"
Time management is on Cecelia's mind. She wants to know how they manage to keep it together in this way.
Lisa and Donna are curious about the best writing advice this author has ever received.
"I always like to know what motivates an author to write, as well as their process," says Susan R.
Lydia posed this question, "What writing habit do you have that you think others would benefit in their own writing?"
Carla's curious about how writers balance a small business and their writing.
Cheryl wants to know, "What is the most unusual thing you've done in the name of research?
Terri's looking to find insight on this one. "Did you want to give up often?
Rhonda's thoughts are similar. She wonders how they stay encouraged and fresh, how they hang in there and don't give up.
Angela offered this thought, "A question I'd ask is how much their life changed once they went from writer to author, both how they looked at the industry and their part in it, and how it affected their personal life."
"How much money did you have in the bank when you quit your day job and decided to write full time? Or, did you just take a leap of faith out over the gaping chasm of tomorrow, and trust the Lord?" Good thinking, Jeanette!
Lynn says, "I always like to know how many books the author has written (and in a special place in her closet) before they were published."
What a wonderful list of questions. Thank you all so much! Perhaps this will inspire someone to do an interview...:)
