Top Ten Tuesday: Questions I’d Ask My Favourite Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Apologies for the delay in this post, I’m still getting used to the new block editor. In an ideal world, nothing would make me happier than sitting down with my favouirte author and picking their brain for an hour or two. Some of these questions sit on the silly side, but even those questions provide some insight into their creative process. These are the questions I’d ask my favourite authors, but I also have some questions for you readers/bloggers?

1. Pierce Brown

What’s the most satisfying part about putting your readers through such emotional turmoil?
*This writer still hasn’t finished Morning Star*

2. V. E. Schwab:

What can we expect from the Shades of Magic spin off?

3. Brandon Sanderson:

What’s your process when conjuring such complex magic systems?

4.Fonda Lee:

I’ve just started Jade City, but why are you determined to crush my heart?

5. Fredrik Backman:

You explored the relationship between sports and a community in Beartown. What do you think needs to change in sports culture?

6. Madeline Miller:

So, when can we expect your Hadese/Persephone retelling?
*the only one that could do justice to their tale*

7. Leigh Bardugo:

Where’s the best place in Ketterdam to get waffles? What are you most excited for fans to see in the Shadow and Bone TV series?

8. Huntley Fitzpatrick:

Are you working on a new book?

9. To Readers:

What’s your worst reading habit?

10. To Bloggers:

What’s your favourite type of post to write?
What do you think of the new block editor?

What sort of questions would you ask your favourite authors?
What would be your dream interview?

  1. I hate the block editor. I had the email informing me that it is now my default editor last week and I detest it.πŸ˜‚ I liked the simple interface of the classic editor and it worked well for me, for many others too. I get change, modernising, etc and that the block editor will appeal to those who create fancy posts with a large array of formatting and have really detailed websites, but for me and other bloggers classic worked well. It’s a shame that they can’t find some common ground between the two and give the best of both worlds or allow a choice.

    The block editor has been around for a couple of years and for many it is the only editor that they have used. Coming from classic to blocks is a drastic change and it seems like WordPress doesn’t understand that. It also seems to have various issues that need fixing and, yeah, a block for each paragraph seems excessive, one line, enter, new block, too much.πŸ˜‚

    1. I was perfectly happy with the classic editor too. It was simple and easy to use and I don’t spend hours trying to adjust the format of every single block. I feel like I will get used to it eventually, but it took me a good hour to find the read more tab, and I still don’t know how I managed that haha.

      1. The ‘read more’ tab, that sounds ominous!πŸ˜‚ My theme used to have the choice of showing the full post or an excerpt with the read more option in the customise settings of the theme for my blog. That sounds like I’m going to need yet another blog to try and figure out now for something that was automatically done!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜’


    1. Her books were a staple of my teenage years. My Life Next Door always gives me a warm/fuzzy feeling cause it’s such an adorable book. Thank you so much for the comment and the follow, always happy to virtually meet new bloggers. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
