Anne Rice talks about writing with Christopher Rice

Check out this video with legendary author Anne Rice (Interview with the Vampire) and her writer son Christopher Rice (The Moonlit Earth), on writing and being an author. I found the interview inspiring, encouraging, and wise, so full of insight, and good advice–including not to listen to advice (something I also say!) but to go with what works for you as a writer. I identified with so much Anne Rice said, and got a lot out of the talk, including the answers to audience questions. I loved hearing that other people told Anne Rice that she wasn’t a real writer because she didn’t write every day–yet here she is, so successful!–because I’ve had the same experience, people telling me what a “real” writer is, and that I don’t fit it. I also loved hearing about how much Anne thinks putting emotion into characters, getting the reader to feel, is important. It’s so validating!
