On episode 129 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast I spoke once again with Emma Scott. We discussed:
- how she’s improved since writing her first book;
- her writing process and how it has changed over time;
- finding your story vs. creating your story;
- using honest self-critique while avoiding demoralizing self-criticism;
- whether she can really call herself a marathon runner.
About our guest:
Emma Scott is a writer, marathon runner, and caffeine addict, who lives and writes in the California Bay Area. She has two smart, feisty little girls, a super-supportive husband, and is a demonstrated fan of the Oxford comma. She is also an unabashed Star Wars geek and comic book enthusiast who fell into romance novels when a writing contest prompt turned a 1000-word romantic story into a full-blown novel. She also writes epic fantasy that suffers an epic word count.
She hopes you enjoy her work, encourages readers to leave feedback, and thinks it’s amusing to write about herself in the third person. And if she has a driving force that fuels her work, it’s that love always wins.
