Sebastian, Becca, J. K. Rowling discussed on Discovered Wordsmiths
In the whole book where the two main characters were visiting a town and they asked where the head guy was and they get directed to the head guy and I'm like, wait a second the head guy is the father of one of these kids the kid grew up in this town he wouldn't be asking and nobody caught that on. Now I did the same thing I- adult. I had a lady that read a read through my book and she came back and told me she was like I really enjoyed it. She's like there was just one thing that just kept hitting me through the whole story and it's about Sebastian's father passing away and she was like it was a very sudden mysterious illness. She goes I kept waiting and kept waiting for you to elaborate on that on what it actually was that killed him but you never did and I was like I didn't. Like. Oh. So I'd eat out that because I thought. For me it's in my head. Some thinking I put that down I know I did right and I think sometimes if you're. Writing over weeks and months you forget what's in there? What's in your head what you've changed? Sometimes escapes you and you don't realize it. Not at all I, mean I before a sit down and start writing I. always go back to the beginning of last. Chapter I've worked on and just reread through that just. So I kind of okay. This is where I'm at right now. Right. So. Shift gears just a little bit. What authors or books have inspired you or what are some of your favorite authors in books outside I mean obviously, you know it's going to be the same as my my movie interests I love. The game of thrones books I love the Lord of the Rings Books. Anew actually started reading that I'm really really enjoying quite a bit i. haven't read through all of them. Yet is the shadow on phone books and they actually have a Netflix. Show that's coming out eventually I'll know because of corona but I started reading it I've read through book one of Read Parts Part of book too, and I'm really enjoying the story about I. Mean it's very it's also really different than a lot of the fantasy fictions and So. That's that's something that I'm like in a lot but I've always love Tolkien J. K. Rowling and. Those are always good goto bucks. Yes and I agree with those aisles. Fantasy Series Dragon Lance when I was growing up that I loved Albion though I've read them now earl in more recent years and I'm. Like this isn't quite as good as I. Remember. Yeah I. Now I I remember when I was in high school, we always had to do book reports and everybody always fought over the hobbit. So it was never available. There was only one copy in the whole library. So it was never available and I remember a friend of mine and I can't think of the name of the books. For the life of me but she was like read these, they're amazing and I remember reading on. Wow. This is amazing. But thinking of the story pen in the back of my head now like that was kind of cheesy. At that that seems to happen. All right. Well, Becca. Do you have any last advice for new authors to get to where you're at. On Lot of a lot of the best advices, Yano don't Don't rush into things make sure your research Do. Do all of the best amount of homework.
