The Dust Jacket: Charles Dubow, Lisa Genova, Mary-Beth Hughes, & Matthew Thomas

All the way back on June 3, Bryant Park’s Word for Word series hosted a talk with Charles Dubow, Lisa Genova, Mary-Beth Hughes, & Matthew Thomas. Unfortunately for me, my daughter decided she didn’t want to eat lunch where we could actually here them, so I picked up very little of it! Lisa Genova (third from the left in the picture below)- as perhaps might be expected of someone who has presented scientific research and is one of the biggest success stories from self-publishing- spoke the clearest and most confidently. I did manage to catch that every one of the authors starts out writing by hand. Most of them just did a few pages, “to get the lead out,” before moving on to a keyboard, but Matthew Thomas (first on the right) won my admiration by writing his entire first draft out by hand (one habit I have in common with one successful writer, woohoo! If anyone else out there begins with old fashioned pen and paper, please share in my joy!)
