- How do you know when a book is finished?
Sometimes I don’t! Since I’ve only officially finished one book and a few short stories, and I’m in the process of writing five(!?) others, I’m not exactly well-versed in bringing a book to a meaningful close.
I really only know how I would like a book to end, or what I’d like to see happen to the story and the characters. For me everything’s a work in progress, including the conclusion sometimes.
- Do you imagine movie stars in the film version of your books while you write.
Of course! That’s partly what I use Pinterest for. I have boards for almost every writing project I’m working on. I have world-building boards for setting, wardrobe, weapons, and characters.
