Wen asked Lois Lowry:

Oh, this is exciting! I've been wondering about something: In "The Giver", how difficult was it to convey feelings using words? The descriptions were so accurate, like when you described how the warmth of the sun felt. Did you struggle a lot to make those descriptions just right? Or did they just came out as you wrote? Thanks a lot! For everything!

Lois Lowry I am pretty facile with words so it is not usually a struggle. But sometimes it is an interesting challenge to find just the right ones!
