Title: Alyssa McCarthy’s Magical Missions: From Frights to Flaws
Author: Sunayna Prasad
Did you always want to be a writer?
No. In fact, I used to think everything I wrote was stupid shortly after writing it.
Have you ever suffered from writer’s block? If yes, how did you ‘cure’ it?
I suffer from writer’s block a lot. But I do free-writing to cure it.
Some writers go on long walks, others keep a journal, write at a café, or listen to music. What do you do for inspiration and unleashing your creativity?
They come up from real-life experiences, content from other books, or are just random.
Do you like to outline and plot ahead, or are you more of a stream-of-consciousness writer?
I like to outline.
What are you working on now?
The sequel to my current book.
What advice would you offer aspiring writers?
Keep going and take your time.
