This is really strange, but it is SO. STINKIN. HARD. to write Simon from third person. When he’s in a scene that I’m writing from someone else’s POV, he never EVER acts right. He’s so stiff and weird and I hate it. I’m always deep inside his head and so when I try to write him from NOT inside his head, it never works.

I have the feeling that a certain character in the second book might be quite a handful to wrangle onto the page.

Sometimes Calvin can be tricky to get right, but I think that’s because I don’t know him as well as I know some of the others.
