Stephen King on Setting Your Monsters Loose

  1. Lisa, I love your analysis of the monsters and delicate line fiction must walk to be relatable. I’m hoping to explore writing fiction after I turn 40, and have faced my remaining fears. I think that your character could be relatable for sure. Maybe you just need to give her a flaw that’s one you don’t share to create distance. Maybe she’s more controlled and calculating where you are tender and unassuming? PS I can’t wait to read what you write.

  2. I would feel sympathy for those characters, so only two of the first three qualities you mentioned apply to me as well. And if your first novel is secretly autobiographical, that’s fine. What you bring to the story and what readers take away from it is always a different, unique experience anyway. And if your first novel is secretly autobiographical, that’s fine.
