Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:
Where did the idea come from for the book? I had committed to participate in Camp Nano, in June of this year, and was desperately searching for something to write about. There was a red sky one night, and the old phrase “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight” came to me, and instantly I had a flash of inspiration – a group of characters and their history, and a vague idea of where they were headed.
What genre does your book fall under? Fantasy.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? 19 days to write just over 50,000 words.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? I’m no good at comparing my work with others.
Who or What inspired you to write this book? Another tricky question! The inspiration just struck me, a few days before Nano started in June. I had been dreaming about mermaids a lot before hand, and knew my story should be about the sea, so when the pirate story idea came I knew I had to run with it.
Thanks LaVerne for tagging me! 😀
