{Gearing Up for YallFest} Interview with Veronica Rossi


YALLFEST is the largest book festival in the south. This year there are more than 40 Young Adult Authors - from Veronica Roth to Lauren Oliver scheduled to be there.  
 
To gear up for the book festival, we'll be hosting some interviews with different authors that will be attending!  Today's author is Veronica Rossi, author of Under the Never Sky! (Read Monday's interview with Rainbow Rowell here.)

What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
Yeah, those. And all the ones in between!

Best writing tip you ever received?

$5. Just kidding. Um… tip… I think it’s probably to allow yourself to suck when writing early drafts. It takes away a lot of the fear of generating good material. It’s not easy to be creative when you’re judging your work.      

Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.

1.       In the past year, I discovered a deep love of Brussel sprouts
2.       I talk to myself. Heck. Sometimes I argue with myself.
3.       I’m arguing with myself about including that last point at this very   moment.
4.       My favorite animals are elephants.
5.       Dresses with pockets make me happy.

Where's your favorite place to write?

I usually work in my home office, but I love working in hotel rooms. No distractions!

What are you working on now?

Something I’m very excited about! Can’t divulge any details yet, but it’s an idea I’ve been mulling over for years.


Make sure you don't miss your chance to see her, and all the amazing authors that will be at YALLFEST this year!  Check them out here
