The best interview I've read in coon's age. Great stuff!

Middle Ditch said...

Great interview Charles. Well done.

I read the interview with interest. Re self-doubt, I think it goes with the creative character - creatives always assume there is another way to see things, that externals are not the whole story, that reality can be altered in art - all of this makes for uncertainty.

Charles Gramlich said...

Evan, thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed.

Middle Ditch, I appreciate that. appreciate your visit.

Artsparker, I know. I see it in all my writer friends it seems.

Great interview, At last can i see your face. About the interview itself...

"No one can write a book in a day, but if you make progress every day then you know you’ll get to that magic point where you can say: “The End.”" ---> This for me has been the hardest thing to learn. Must keep remind me every day.

By the way, hope you have a great 4th of July ;D

Very thorough and professional interview by Jessie Ferguson.

And yes, yes, yes,

You must start writing.
You must finish what you start.
You must submit what you finish.
You must do it over and over.


Yes, over and over. I feel like Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times, and not Charles Gramlich when I do this. Compulsively. :)

BTW, Monha Rahman has done a great review of my novel, The Fire in Bradford, which Charles has already read and commented on in Mona's blog, The Two Bits.

Brainy people!

That was a great interview and I am a "Pantser" too.

Ron Scheer said...

I read The Snow Leopard maybe 35 years ago, and it's never left my list of top 10 books.

I don't read horror, but I'm really curious now how someone who comes across as so thoughtful and earnest in an interview chooses that genre to tell a story.

Charles Gramlich said...

Deka Black, yes, now that you've seen my face you know why I write horror. :)

ivan, Yeah its much easeier in the saying than in the doing.

David J. West, I like the fun of discovering the story myself as I go through.

Ron Scheer, The Snow Leopard is a great great book. As for horror, some stories just trend toward the very dark for me. The characters can be similar to those you'd find in fantasy or westerns, but the settings adn themes are different.

Ocean Girl said...

I enjoyed learning more from you and also of you Charles. You are not just a writer, you are a teacher.

Happy 4th of July to you and Lana.

Jess said...

This interview with you, Charles, was so much fun for me. Since you have so many friends and such a following, I was afraid I asked questions that everyone knew the answers to--and I loved that picture too!

Again, thanks so much. I feel like you made ME famous. :)

Christina said...

I really enjoyed reading the interview. Super good!

Richard Prosch said...

I really enjoyed this! Very honest and straight-forward. Growing up on a farm --made-up stories absolutely relieve the monotony. Again, nice work.

Charles Gramlich said...

sage, thankee

laughingwolf, glad you enjoyed.

Ocean Girl, I hope my students think so.

Jess, I'm glad it went well. I really appreciate you taking the time to set everything up.

Christina, glad you liked it. It was fun.

Richard Prosch, It took me a long time after I left the farm before I came to really appreciate it.

Lana Gramlich said...

Cool interview, hon. :)

Kate S said...

Wow, that was great. I learned so much just from that.

Charles Gramlich said...

Lana, no YOU are cool.

Kate S, thanks for having a look. I appreciate it.

That was a very well done interview with extremely pertinent questions to the writing. I really liked your advise for members in a critique group.
