Author Interview - Lori Ryan @loriryanauthor

at 11:00 AM
What do you consider the most challenging about writing a novel, or about writing in general?
Getting out the first draft can be difficult. Even though I often have all of the scenes in my head, getting them out on paper can take a long time. Once it’s down on paper, then I can begin tweaking and whittling and adding things here and there. That’s a bit easier.
Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it?
Writing Negotiation Tactics was harder for me because it was a really emotional book. I hadn’t expected it to be so emotional. I thought Jennie and Chad would have a really fun book, given Jennie’s wild ways, but then when I began working on their book, it turned out Jennie had a past even I didn’t know about. She was carrying a lot of baggage and getting through that was tough.
Do you intend to make writing a career?
I do. I absolutely love hearing from my fans and seeing people post quotes and things online. It’s great to hear from people who enjoy my work and want more. I also love the creative process and love getting lost in the characters. I hope I have a lot more books in me!
Have you developed a specific writing style?
Yes, but I also hope to continue to grow as a writer. I’m so new to this but I’ve already learned so much from my editors and my creative writing group and even from fans. I would guess that my style will grow and evolve as I write more and more books.
Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?
Yes. I had huge writers block recently with a manuscript I was supposed to submit to a publisher. They were actually only expecting me to send in three chapters but those three chapters took me over a month to get down on paper. It felt like pulling teeth. Things usually just flow for me, but with that one, I just had to force it out. And, that’s what I did. I just made myself sit down and force it out on paper, even though it wasn’t very good at first. By the time it went out to the publisher, I was actually pretty happy with it.
