Sample Interview Questions for Richard Lowe

What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer?

The first thing to do is to set aside time each day that is writing time. It doesn’t matter whether that’s an hour a day or six hours or whatever you’re comfortable with. Just make it clear to everyone around you, including your family, that’s the time you write. Make sure you have the phone, television, and any other distractions turned off or shut down. Then during that time, do your writing. If you get writers block, then either power through it or write something else for a while. Sometimes alternating between two or three different manuscripts is a way to conquer writer’s block.

The whole point is you have to do it. You have to write. That’s the whole point of being a writer. As far as publishing goes, there are any number of alternatives. I decided to self-publish my first few books to help support my ghostwriting business, and because it’s a simpler route to take. I am working on several novels, and I expect to send those out on the more traditional publishing route. I need to find an agent who will shop them around the various publishers.

What is your writing routine?

I write for eight hours every day. I have a timer that is set for forty-five minutes. While that is counting down, I speak into dictation software. I typically write about two thousand words in that forty-five-minute time. Once the timer goes off, I take a break. Typically, I’ll do forty-five minutes of writing followed by a fifteen-minute break three times, then stopped for lunch. I’ll repeat that routine in the afternoon through dinner.

Finally, I’ll do a couple more before going to bed. I use that fifteen-minute break between writing sessions to stretch, exercise, get a drink of water, or just stand outside and stare into space. The idea is to get away from the computer screen and do something different.

Did you like reading when you were a child?

I was a voracious reader as a child. My first science fiction book was Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein. That’s a tough read for a seven-year-old, and some of the concepts certainly are a bit adult in nature, but it gave me a new viewpoint on life that I’d never considered before. After that, I was hooked on science fiction and fantasy. One of my fondest memories was visiting the library and checking out half a dozen books as part of the reading program. Each book earned a sticker, and I always had a full page of stickers and then moved on to the next contest.
