Top Ten Tuesday: Questions I Would Ask My Favorite Authors


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Questions I Would Ask My Favorite Authors (Living or dead. You can post 10 questions for one author, one question each for 10 different authors, or anything else!).  For my list, I'm not directing them toward specific authors, but these are general questions that I wouldn't mind asking many favorite authors.  Here we go, in no particular order:


What is your writing Kryptonite?

Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?

What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel?

How do you select the names of your characters?

What books, films, and TV shows most inform the aesthetic of your book?

What's the strangest thing you had to do or research to create this story?

Which other genres would you most like to try writing?

Does this story have a soundtrack or a playlist that inspired you while you were writing it?

What is the funniest typo you’ve ever written?


As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!  What questions would you ask to some of your favorite authors?

  1. I love your question about strangest things done while researching or writing a novel. I'd bet it would give some great answers.

  4. Great questions and too the point on many things. A thought, you could do this by asking authors in TTT to answer those questions and then post them. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2020/08/ttt-082520.html

  6. I love the typo question. I wonder if prolific writers could even remember one, but it would be a fun exercise to ask many writers that question. My TTT interview with Jane Austen

  14. Great qustions! I always wonder about playlists or music that influences authors too, or that they listen to while they are writing. Also what books or shows influence their stories. :)

  15. I love these questions! I bet you'd find a lot of interesting answers to the research question. Once I watched people get hit on the head with beer bottles (on YouTube) for research, because I needed to describe what that would sound like!

  20. Love the questions you featured this week! I'm always really interested to hear about a writer's research process, so that would be high up on my 'ask list', too.
