I try to faithfully record everything that Will Henry witnesses, and I don't consciouslessly hold something back. It is what he sees, and what anyone would see, should they go where a monstrumologist goes.
Do you ever scare yourself with some of the ideas you come up with or have trouble going back to the real world after a writing session?
All the time. And let me tell you, at 3:00 in the morning, monsters are REAL.
What is your favorite part and the hardest part of writing?
Favorite part: when the story just seems to start writing itself (that's when I know I'm on to something). Worst part: When nothing I try seems to work. Then I feel like a complete fool for ever taking up writing to being with.
Do you have any interesting writing quirks or rituals you go through?
I like to hum theme music when I write. I also act out certain scenes. But only when nobody is watching!
Is there anything else you would like to say or tell us?
Read my book! Please! It's really, really good. Really good!
Thank you, Rick, for taking the time to answer my questions and I agree with the last thing- read the book. It is phenomenal, at least in my opinion- and since this is my blog, and my interview, and my attempt to promote his awesome book, its really the only opinion that matters. =D And with the holidays coming up, what better time to ask for this book?
