Is it harder to write about people that you know are going to read it, whether it’s people you have good relationships with or bad ones?
While I’m writing, I don’t think about it at all because I have to get in a frame of mind that I’m not concerned about other people, and I’m just worried about getting the story down honestly. But since I’ve been done, I worry about it a ton. Not people who I don’t care about or who aren’t in my life—I don’t worry about that at all—but for the people who are there, I do get concerned, and kind of go back and check the book sometime to see how bad it is, and what they might think about it. It’s pretty terrifying, thinking of them reading it, maybe. [laughs]
