Today LitHub starts a new series of questions for writers. Fascinating to see what top level concepts go into a book and where writers were in their lives when they produced a book.

How might you answer?

1. Without summarizing it in any way, what would you say your book is about?

2. Without explaining why and without naming other authors or books, can you discuss the various influences on your book?

3. Without using complete sentences, can you describe what was going on in your life as you wrote this book?

4. What are some words you despise that have been used to describe your writing by readers and/or reviewers?

5. If you could choose a career besides writing (irrespective of schooling requirements and/or talent) what would it be?

6. What craft elements do you think are your strong suit, and what would you like to be better at?

7. How do you contend with the hubris of thinking anyone has or should have any interest in what you have to say about anything?
