« Ten Novels Every Aspiring Writer Should Read | Main | Ray Bradbury: The Martian Chronicler »


C Gockel

Thank you so much for doing your interview with NPR. I'm an aspiring author, and my husband just got me "Game of Thrones" for my birthday (Yes, I share the same birthday/death-day as the Bard, that's gotta mean something, right?)

Just looking at it, I get depressed, because I can never write like that! But that's not the point. I'm going to read it, and learn what I can about character development, pacing, etc, but I think I have a very philosophical outlook on the world (a much happier one too!) and that's okay. And my style is probably more punchy, and that's okay too (life is both SWEET & sour.)
