thank you to Dana Ward for tagging me in the Next Big Thing. I guess I was supposed to do it yesterday but I forgot so here it is today:
THE NEXT BIG THING Q & A
What is the working title of the book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I stand transfixed at the intersection of terror, bravery, and mirth.
What genre does your book fall under?
What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
I would choose to be portrayed by Isabelle Huppert. :-) Other characters would be represented as puppets designed and manipulated by Emma Borges-Scott and Bridget Talone.
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
Sorry doesn’t get you laid.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
I am still working on it!! All in all, I would estimate the total number of years spent on first draft to be 31.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Uhh…I have kept a journal since I was 7. In the front of every journal I write
“My name is Elaine Kahn
I am ___ years old
I live at _____ address.
This is my very best writing."
So...if you consider the fact that my manuscript contains the cream of my journal crop, we are talking about some of my seriously very best writing.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Only google knows.
