As I was writing The Good Braider, and as the story emerged in images told in spare language, I was not thinking of possible readers. I was looking for the key to capture the truth of the story. That way of homing in on a subject was what drew me to the specificity and spareness of poetry. I love what Rita Dove, a former U.S. poet laureate, said about verse novels during an Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) Conference panel titled ‘Staggered Tellings: Immediacy, Intimacy, and Ellipses in the Verse Novel.’ Verse novels, she said, offer ‘the weight of each word, the weight of the sentence, the weight of the line, the weight of white space, heightened attention to sound, and deep allegiance to silence.’
Terry Farish, “Why Verse? Poetic Novels for Historical Fiction, Displacement Stories, and Struggling Readers
When I write books, I’m exploring the things I’ve figured out over 50 years. One of those things is, you can never take for granted that you know people. Even the most straightforward people turn out to sometimes have big secrets. You think your parents are on Earth for you, to be wise and protective, and there’s a slow dawning that you’re not as much like them as you thought you were. They may have secrets as well. It’s like the fall from paradise.
Meg Rosoff, “Somewhere between Childhood and Adulthood | A Conversation With Meg Rosoff
I think you have to be incredibly honest as an author. If you’re going to write a character who resembles you in certain ways, you have to be willing to lay it all on the line, to expose your shame and vulnerability.
