Last week I headed up to London to do an interview. In real life. With a major author. In the gorgeous Carmelite offices. And I was terrified.
But not until I walked out of the train station and it dawned on me – panic set in, my hands got clammy, my questions all seemed terrible and I was convinced it would all go horribly wrong. It was only my second real life interview, after all.
And you know what? It was totally fine.
Sure, my voice got a little weird at first and I fumbled a little, but it was kinda fun. I mean, how often to you get to sit in a swish room at Carmelite and have one on one time with Lauren Oliver? Never. (She’s lovely and super cool, btw.)
New motto, Shonda Rhimes-style: say yes. It won't be nearly as bad as you think it will.
Have you ever interviewed an author in person? Were you terrified?
