The Questionnaire: Aimee Bender

March 26, 2012   •   By The Questionnaire


Do you succumb to nostalgia?  

Far too easily.

Do you write long and cut, or short and backfill?  

Somehow both?

Best piece of advice you ever received?  

Trust the process.

Are you okay with blood?  

I am okay with it.

Title of the book you're probably never going to write, but would kind of like to get around to?

 Murder School.

Does plot matter?  

It does!  But it is also so much more interesting and roundabout and JD Salinger Nine Stories-esque than your usual beg-middle-end/conflict/resolution/Syd Fieldinesses.

Does age matter?  

With cheese and buildings

Is there a literary community?  

Isn't this trying to do exactly that?  So: yes.
