Lynda La Plante questionnaire, part II

Here is the second part of the questionnaire that I sent to Lynda La Plante as a kid. It is truly remarkable just how honest her answers are, and speaks volumes about the kind of person and author she is.

A real insight into the mind and working processes of one of the most acclaimed and successful authors of our generation.

An inspiration to me and many others. Thank you Lynda. xx

Lynda La Plante! Great writer, lovely lady, inspiration!

I always wanted to be a writer. Actually, I wanted to be an astronaut and a writer. Well, I still dream of space and stargaze, and I still write everyday and will this year fulfill my lifetime’s dream by being published.

In an attempt to understand the life of a writer, I did something rather foolish…

Over twenty years ago, I had the youthful audacity to write to Lynda La Plante, never daring that my letter would ever reach her, let alone actually be answered. But…like the classy lady she is, and the truly generous writer she is, she replied…in a personal handwritten note. What a thrill for a kid dreaming of one day becoming an author, to receive such a letter!

Well, here in all it’s glory, is my rather amateurish attempt at a questionnaire and the very honest and kind answers that Lynda La Plante gave! (Please ignore the childish handwriting…I was…er…a child!)

May it be an inspiration to all of you as it was to me! 

Thank you Lynda! xx 😀

P.S. Part 2 tomorrow.
