This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Emily Wenzl who I met at my recent workshop to do an interview for her blog that focuses on the amazing writing community we have in Fort Collins. It was so much fun to chat about my writing process and what I’m working on. Here’s a bit about what we talked about:
“Jamie Raintree, local author, wasn’t a person who was writing novels with a crayon at a young age. Although she wrote a couple of short stories throughout high school, her creative juices needed a kick start to start flowing. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWrimo) was that kick that she needed. She signed up, wrote a novel in a month, and hasn’t stopped since.
‘I think right about the time I discovered National Novel Writing Month in 2008, that was the first time I really realized that normal people could write novels because for some reason I always thought that you had to have a degree or some kind of qualification,’ Raintree said.”
