Chelsea Trujillo asked Diana Gabaldon:

I'm curious because you already know the story, do you get emotional when you are writing or when you re read the books? They touch us all so deeply. I have to imagine they have some effect on you as well to have put that much heart into them.

Diana Gabaldon I don't know the story. I don't plan it out ahead of time (nor do I write in a straight line; I write where I can see something happening--and very slowly. ). But yes, of course the emotional parts are just that; I live through whatever I'm writing.
