Walking and Talking with . . . Rebecca Stead!

There is much to love in this latest edition to the Steve Sheinkin “Walking and Talking” oeuvre.  Since today’s guest is Newbery Award winning author Rebecca Stead there are insights into her process.  There is careful consideration of the act of writing, and what you chose to tell or not tell.  And, most important of all, there is a random walk-on by M.T. Anderson.  If I had my way with the universe, every single “Walking and Talking” update would include a brief Anderson-like moment like this.  Dare to dream, girl.  Dare to dream.

Until then, enjoy the latest!

  1. That Anderson moment is brilliant. And why is it so lovely to know that Rebecca Stead also has self-doubt about actually finishing a novel?
