The following in a snippet from an interview I did with an author buddy of mine. Check out the entire interview at http://lindaksienkiewicz.com/
“Conversation with Linda S. Browning, Mystery Writer” (1/31/15)
Q. I understand you’re working on a novel, IN-BETWEEN REFLECTIONS. What challenges have you faced going from short stories to a novel?
I don’t like to write in third person. Too much “he said…she said”. How many different ways can you say it? I find writing a novel-length story to be outside of my level of talent. I get bored with myself. I’m in a hurry to tell the story. I’m usually done at around 53,000 words. I’m not big on writing descriptions of…say…what the wallpaper looks like. If I spend any time talking about the wallpaper, it is probably because there is a body behind the wall somewhere.
Note of interest (or not): The photograph doesn’t have anything to do with the interview. I just like it
