In this wonderful Q&A in The Nerd Daily, novelist Sophie Gonzales says, “The main two things that influenced my characterisation of Ollie was Save The Cat (a craft book that advises you give your character a generous moment early on to make readers root for them) and, in a lot of ways, my own upbringing.”
And she says so much more, like “Stop listening to people who tell you things aren’t possible. The only person who gets to decide your limits is you.”
Here’s to Only Mostly Devastated and Sophie Gonzales!
