Author Interview: C.S. Patra

Do you argue with your characters? If so, who wins most frequently?

Always, almost always. About 80% of the time, they end up winning. I have to cave in and do as they demand.

What makes a story interesting to you to write? How about to read?

Engaging characters, twists I don’t see coming, someone doing what you normally don’t expect them to do, character development, humor

How do you escape writer’s block?

I rarely have this but I usually go back to something I was working on before or start writing something new. That will usually take me out of my rut faster than anything else.

What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever received?

Just write. Don’t try to hard to make sense of it right away, don’t worry about the editing, don’t worry period. There will be time to do that but sometimes all you have to do is write.

What’s your writing fuel?

Music. Music is usually what makes me move.

The best joke you ever heard:

Bond. Ionic Bond. Taken, not shared.
