308: Setting, Characters, and Identity: Your Story’s Ecosystem – Interview with Abbigail Rosewood

Hey there word nerds! Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Abbigail Rosewood. Abbigail was born in Vietnam, where she lived until the age of twelve. She holds an MFA in creative writing from Columbia University. An excerpt from her first novel won first place in the Writers Workshop of Asheville Literary Fiction Contest. Today we’ll be discussing her debut novel: If I Had Two Lives

In this episode Abbigail and I discuss:

  • How to persevere after the ‘honeymoon’ stage of writing a book ends.
  • Ways to weave together a protagonist’s internal and external journey. 
  • Why cutting words and characters can actually enhance the world of your novel. 

Plus, her #1 tip for writers.
