As a diversion, I wondered if I could write a story that was a little different. I did and became hooked on writing fiction. When I read that first manuscript, I groan because it was horrible. But that experience sparked a continuing drive to write.(less)

Possible story lines pop into my head continually regardless of what I am doing until I settle on the “right one” and run with it. For example, in The Field Trip, I wanted more interaction between two of the characters but reached a block on how. Later on the same day a close friend talked about running out of fuel in her vehicle. That sparked an idea that developed into eight pages.(less)

Divergent by Veronica Roth

THERE IS ONE mirror in my house. It is behind a sliding panel in the hallway upstairs. Our faction allows me to stand in front of it on the second day of every third month, the day my mother cuts my hair.
I’ve noticed a pattern, which is that I often enter a story, as a writer, from a male character’s perspective—and then about fifty pages in, I discover that the story is not really his at all. The earliest version of Divergent was written from Tobias’s perspective. He was the one born in Abnegation, who chose Dauntless because he couldn’t stand to stay where he was. His story ultimately changed anyway—you can see that in the short stories I wrote from his perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection—but when I gave that emotional arc, not to him, but to a small, meek girl instead, the story ...more
