If you could ask an author anything, what would you want to know?
This is the question. My question. About your question. Or, more to the point, about the questions I might get from a class of eighth graders.
On Friday, I’m going to a middle school to speak to 120 eighth graders. I’m going to be in an area without a projector or screen so my handy-dandy powerpoint presentations are out.
So instead, I’ve decided to do a Q & A thing. I’m going to write up index cards of all the questions I can think of that kids might want to know. Then, they can either ask one of their own, or pick one of mine. Such as:
Where do you get your ideas?
Is OyMG about you?
Is your hair always that curly?
I’d really love to add more to my list. Some serious. Some funny. But all that would interest a group of 14-year-olds. Anybody have any ideas? Questions you’ve always wanted to ask? Questions you’ve been asked? Questions you can’t believe anyone would dare ask? Please send them my way…and I’ll let you know how it goes.
