Rainbow Rowell Live Chat answer to my questions

I joined the Book Riot chat with Rainbow Rowell, the amazing write of Fangirl, Eleanor & Park, Attachments and now Landline. I asked her his question and here’s her answer. I thought I should share it with you all.

I’m currently reading Landline. Only 70 pages left! But I my all time favorite is Fangirl, because I can relate to Cath a lot. Here’s my question: What inspire you to write your stories? Do they just pop out of your mind? You dream them? You plan them? How it works on you? I’m curious.

 
Rainbow: 

Thank you! This is a really hard question to answer because so much of it happens subconsciously for me. It’s almost like a dream … the way your dreams seem like they’re built of real parts. I feel like my ideas are very often tied to things I’m consciously thinking about. When I came up with the idea for Fangirl, I was reading a lot of fanfiction. These ideas sort of feel like “What ifs.” I’ll think, “What if there was a girl who was very successful online, but scared to leave her room?” I mean, that’s a vast oversimplification …

  What’s your advice for future writers? I’m working on my first novel now.

 
 
Rainbow: 

My advice is to read a lot. And to write a lot. I think you need to be so full of language,

that you can recognize good writing when it comes out of you.
