As a young child, C.J. Rune loved to read the types of fiction which take us on brief journeys to other worlds, but then forever stay with us in this one. At eight years old, he wrote his own short story for a class assignment; a story that received critical acclaim from his teacher - and only his teacher (and, truth be told, she was actually only a teacher's aide). Even still, she had suggested he consider becoming a writer someday and, like those works of influential fiction, that idea stayed with him.

Throughout adulthood, he was distracted with such things as business management and consulting, and running his own Internet-based companies. Though successful in these, they left little time for writing. Yet, his mind never stopped developi

Write. Write. WRITE!

While writing my debut book, Fallen Ancients Rising, I ran into a spot where I was so fed up with trying to intertwine the two main story plots, I wanted to throw it all away. I was certain I was done with it.

So, I started writing a scene that had been in my head for an entirely different story, with a different point of view. About a week later, I had written 75% of a draft for an altogether different book.

And, more importantly, when I returned to writing Fallen Ancients Rising, it felt fresh and new to me and I then had no trouble moving the story forward.

Moral of the story? Keep writing. Something. Anything. For me, at least, writing is the absolute best way to deal with writer's block.(less)

The Martian by Andy Weir
The Martian
I’ll be honest here – I wrote THE MARTIAN with the idea that it would appeal to a teeny, tiny niche of hardcore science dorks. I had no idea it would gain mainstream appeal. It’s basically a long series of high school algebra word problems that ended up becoming a huge hit. I still don’t know what I did right. But hey, I’m glad it happened.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the question. My next series is going to be a proper thriller without all the sci-fi elements. I'm going to circle back to sci-fi at some point as that has been my favorite genre since I was a kid but would like to pull in more of See A.G.’s answer.

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway
