Inside The Author's Studio With Elana Johnson













Hello friends! Welcome to another edition of Inside The Author's Studio. Today's guest is the fabulous author Elana Johnson. Her book POSSESSION is a dystopian book of awesome and one of you lucky commenters will receive your very own copy. (Side note: Elana is a bit of a personal hero for me. I contacted her when I first started writing and asked permission to post this interview on my blog. She is made of win.)



What is your favorite word? Shrub
What is your least favorite word? Fart
What turns your current MC on? Oh, man. How about wicked cool hair and a strong attitude? Yeah, that’s the ticket.
What turns your current MC off? Getting punched in the mouth and/or watching someone else kiss his girlfriend.
What sound do you love? The sound of rain falling on my roof.
What sound do you hate? Whining children.
What is your favorite YA quirk? I like lyrical writing, almost poetry in the text. No, wait. I like made-up words. No, wait. Strikeouts.
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt? World traveler.
What profession would you rather bathe in a vat of urine than attempting? Salesman.
If John Green exists and sits at your table at a SCBWI conference, what would you like him to say to you? “Dude…” Yeah, that would be enough.  

Thank you, Elana!! Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win POSSESSION.

A great list of questions. The Strikeout answer was great but my favorite was the John Green one.
