The Writers Circle: Biggest Fan

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Today we want to know who your favorite author is.  Also, imagine you had the chance to ask your favorite author one question – and only one question – and they would answer it directly and personally for you…what would you ask them?

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.

  1. I have too many favorites–I have no idea how to pick one. As for asking a question: I’m amazed how many Goodreads authors answer questions whey you ask them. And quickly. I love it.

  2. I have several favorite authors as well. I think my favorite overall would have to be Isaac Asimov, with Dr. Seuss being a close second. I probably need to find a new favorite who is still alive and writing… JK Rowling is probably my go-to current author.

    If I wanted to ask any of them a question, I’d like to imagine that I’d come up with some amazing, thought-provoking, deeply intense question. But being realistic, I’d probably just ask Asimov to explain the process he followed while writing — did he plan it all out in detail, did he just let the stories flow, etc.

  3. I’d love to ask Harper Lee how she figured out the complicated plot for To Kill a Mockingbird and if she had to rethink parts of her outline to make the story work so perfectly. But I’d probably just stand there, gushing about how much I love her book, and ask for her autograph.

  4. Anthony Trollope. At least today. And I wouldn’t ask him anything. I’d just say thank you.
