‘Special Topics in Calamity Physics’ and ‘Night Film: A Novel’ author is very active on Tumblr as she kindly takes any question about writing and offers an express detailed answer that we can all enjoy. Even if two years passed since her latest work was officially released Marisha is still active on this platform and just by reading a few fan submitted questions we can find out quite a few interesting details about what she plans for the near future. With this being said let’s see what should we expect next from our favorite author.
Starting off with the basics Crazyinspired asks how easy is writing for Marisha and if she ever struggles when it comes to the creative process. The author tells us that she absolutely loves what she does and the creative process comes in waves however ‘Night Film: A Novel’ for example felt more difficult to create. We can only guess that many nights with vaping sessions took place before the final project was released but judging by the final quality it was all well worth it. Even if vape pens don’t have much to do with this profession any help to stay away from nicotine, caffeine and similar products are most likely welcomed. Creating takes a clear mind and a steady workflow.
Next question comes from ImariJack and it’s actually related to the author’s writing process. While willing to find out if Marisha crafts character plans and action maps before getting to the actual writing, the author tells us that she often writes down notes and ideas about the plot and everything around it. Writing down ideas and thoughts on paper also feels organic so it’s safe to say this is a basic process for our writer.
The third question comes from Lois C. and making a parallel to Blue from ‘Special Topics in Calamity Physics’, the reader wants to know how would Marlowe posses so much knowledge about Ashley in ‘Night Film: A Novel’. Marisha tells us that Marlowe kept in touch with Cordova through the years and this way she was insight into the family up to a point. Apart from that their relationship would not work despite any effort and the imminent divorce was served by Cordova soon after she left The Peak. Yet we are free to interpret the book as we wish but in the mean time if you have a question you like to ask Marisha go on Tumblr to do so. Part two coming soon.
