‘We can’t leave fiction alone’ – on the couch with editor Victoria Mixon, figuratively speaking…

Victoria Mixon is probably the most hilarious book doctor in the world. Rascally and razor sharp, weird and wise. I’m surprised clients don’t suffer creative aneurysms. She’s the author of The Art & Craft of Fiction, A Practitioner’s Manual, and her blog was rightly voted one of the top 10 writing sites in the Write To Done awards (in which Nail Your Novel was a runner-up). To celebrate, she decided she wanted to interview me, God bless her.

Head on over to her place where we had, in her words, ‘a rollicking after-dinner ramble about our craft and the extraordinary work of editing fiction…’ Plus some silliness…

    Who told you about the aneurysms?

      As trained professionals, we need to be able to recognise the signs.

        Well, if someone had an aneurysm on my watch, I wouldn’t even notice. I do all my work over the Internet. I’d just be like that guy in Dances With Wolves: “I wonder why he don’t write?”

    What a Romp 🙂

    Intelligent romp…

    BTW, the pictures are very effective. Who did that last one–the space-time mash-up??

      My husband. He’s a head tech writer/community manager for high-profile computer companies and, also, a freelance author on open-source embedded systems, so of course he has time to Photoshop my blog pictures for me.

      Stay tuned next week, when he teleports Roz halfway around the world into my office.

    Thank you, Alexander! We had a hoot. And no wizardry needed at all. Victoria has extraordinarily long arms.
