Elizabeth asked E. Lockhart:

Some authors write by pen. Which do you prefer? Pen or Computer? And what is the normal word count goal for you?

E. Lockhart I type very fast -- haven't touched a pen to write a story since college. A normal word count goal is 500 at the start of a book, when I am feeling my way. In the middle, 1500 or 2000.
