Many thanks to rob mclennan for interviewing RIVER, DIVERTED author Jamie Tennant on his blog 12 or 20 questions. Here’s an excerpt: Do you find the process of working with an outside editor difficult or essential (or both)?
More essential than difficult. It’s one thing to write and produce your own album, for example. If I wrote twelve songs, I could imagine honing those three or four minute chunks into something resembling a finished work. With a novel it’s so easy to get lost in the woods because the words go on for what seems like forever.
