What a wild book! What a wild life!
Today I am going to begin reading Sara Gruen’s  novel, Water For Elephants.
INTERVIEWER: So how do you make that move in your writing process from a body of research to a story?
SARA GRUEN: I stare at the screen (laugh). I pick some music...I guess I figure out what the crisis of the book is going to be and then I sit down and I get my first scene. But once I have my first scene I really just have to keep going. My method is I spend an hour and a half sort of revving up every morning and I’ll read what I wrote the day before and maybe do a little revising of it, and then just keep going. I just read that last tiny little bit until I feel like I can continue.
Have a great Friday!
