What piece are you least proud of and has anyone read it?
huhhhhhh that’s gonna be the song I don’t talk about or perform ever, Waffles and a White T-Shirt. You’ve read it and we will never speak of it ever and do me a solid and just don’t read it again. I don’t even feel too good about using that notebook again. I’m that ashamed.
Which is easier to write: male or female characters?
I think it’s probably equally difficult, actually. Like, I have trouble writing stereotypically feminine women because I never was that girly, and I also can’t profess to know the experience of being a guy that well. What I end up doing then is writing women who are emotionally stunted brutes that get treated as one of the guys because that’s the reality I’ve dealt with for most of my life. Most folks write what they know after all.
Do you have a playlist that you listen to while you write?
I find that bluegrass and zydeco actually help me write for reasons I cannot explain. I guess it taps into a sort of zen and I just focus better. I know they’re genres that everyone north of the Mason Dixon Line hates but I guess there’s something in me that it helps.
Have you done NaNoWriMo?
About five times. Never successfully. Closest I got was about halfway maybe. Problem is that November was always careening into exam time for me and so school had to be that bitch in the way of me kicking ass.
