Jasper Fforde and R L Stine

My interviews with Jasper Fforde and R L Stine are both now available over at Articulate.

They were both really good to talk to -- and both clearly revelling in their lives as professional writers.

This quote from Fforde really struck a chord with me:
"You write and you want to be published but I think if you write only wanting to be published you're doing it for entirely the wrong reason and it will probably show. I think the thing about writing is to perhaps assume that you won't be published, that there's a strong possibility you will never be published, and if you can carry on writing with that in mind then you're clearly doing it for the right sort of reasons."
