Part of Pupola’s 5 Day Visit of Never One’s Characters
Arnold: I heard the interview with the Hues twins didn’t go anywhere, so I’m here.
Pupola: Eleven year olds.
Arnold: *laughs* Yeah but I’m a fourteen-year-old. It will go better this time.
Pupola: Here. *hands over a clipboard*
Arnold: *takes and reads the clipboard* Thanks! This will help. I was going to wing it.
Pupola: No trouble at all.
Arnold: Where do you write? A desk and chair or on a couch in the living room or sitting on the grass outside?
Pupola: Desk and chair or recliner. Living room mostly. Sometimes outside. A few times in a parked car.
Arnold: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
Pupola: Probably in the sixth grade when I started playing with ideas for novels.
Arnold: What hard parts you faced when writing a story?
Pupola: When my characters are in pain or killing off good characters.
Arnold: Did you cry?
Arnold: What are the fun parts of writing a story?
Pupola: When my characters are having fun or in a climactic moment.
Arnold: Do you think life experiences are more valuable than research for writing?
Pupola: I think both are important. It’s fun when you mix them together like mac & cheese.
Arnold: What helped you with your writing?
Pupola: Not giving up and some coffee or nibbling on something sweet but that’s a secret!
Arnold: What do you think of the ebook movement? Do you think purchasing printed books will be obsolete in the future?
Pupola: I think ebooks are fine. Printed books? Hmm…not anytime soon.
Arnold: Besides writing, what is a fun day for you?
Pupola: A lot of things. Playing with my baby. Going out with my baby. Anything, with my baby.
Arnold: Did you have any pets?
Pupola: Once, some parakeets but had to give them away because of pet allergies.
Arnold: Pepsi or coke?
Pupola: Usually Coke, but I can drink Pepsi too.
Arnold: Finally, what is your favorite color?
Pupola: Now, blue I guess for my baby boy. You added some questions yourself. Sneaky.
Arnold: Hah. That’s it. Bye folks! Thanks for reading. *waves farewell*
Pupola: Thanks Arnold. Stay tuned for Wednesday!
