I’m not sure you can really know a person—or a character—without knowing what they believe.
I recently talked with my former professor and Hunger Mountain editor, Miciah Bay Gault, about her debut novel, Goodnight Stranger; loneliness; the supernatural; the role of belief in living and writing; and our failure to belong in specific “categories.” You can read the full interview here in Electric Literature.
I believe we (writers) should chase our fears and delights, looking for what’s true about us.
