Ask Us Pub Questions!

Are you curious about our writing processes? Do you wonder if we prefer writing villains or heroes? Lord of The Rings or Game of Thrones? Or do you have questions about querying? The publishing world?

We the Path2pub team are eager to answer all of it!

Just ask your questions in the comments below and we’ll answer them collectively on a selected weekend!

  1. I’ve been excited for Path2pub to start running after Lucia announced it on her blog 🙂 And it seems I’m the first to ask a question so I better make it good! Here it goes:
    In your current WIPs, what are the names of your major characters and how were you all inspired for the names?

  2. Hello everyone:) I’m excited for Path2pub to launch. I love the foundation behind it. My question is how does music influence or affect your writing process? Do you make playlists when writing a certain wip? Do you find inspiration from it? Or is it distracting?

  3. Hi, I’ve been really enjoying all the posts shared since the launch. My question has to do with writerly envy. How to keep being happy for your buddies who hit milestones on their path to publication when you’re still far behind. Thanks:)

  4. Great job Path2Pub! You guys are doing an amazing thing for writer and aspiring writers.
    When a writer feels burnt out from editing and trying to improve a book after getting rejections from agents or even discouraged, what would be the best advice for that person.
    It’s easier to say keep going but is there something they can do literarily to get out of that rut and keep trying?
    Thanks!

  5. I’ve enjoyed reading the previous AUPQ and look forward to seeing mine answered 🙂 My question is about revisions. How do you feel about them, revisions with CPs, agents, editors, and everyone who gives revisions?

  6. I’ve been loving all the AUPQ posts so far, so here’s mine. How and when did you realize writing was something you wanted to pursue?

  7. With all that has been going on in the book world —editors leaving or talking about burnouts, poor pay and work environment, do you think publishing is dying?

  8. What are your views on writing breaks while working on a book? How often do you take them? How long before you start to lose touch with the story?

  9. Twitter is a really tricky place in the writing scene because it’s shared both by writers and agents. Obviously, there are certain things writers wouldn’t want agents to see, yet it’s still hard to bite our tongues and not share our grievances over rejections because we don’t want agents to blacklist us. How do you Path2pub ladies feel we can balance this, not being too silent we feel stifled but also not sharing too much to ruin our chances?

  10. Another question I have is that do you ever name your characters after people you know in real life? Thank you:)

  12. How do you avoid panicking when you see a the plot summary of a writer with a book deal is similar to a book you’re querying?

  13. What would you say are your strongest and weakest points in writing?? Is it world building? Character? Plot?
    Thank you for setting up this feature. I always love seeing your collective answers!

  14. Hello Path2pub! I’ve noticed that I like being immersed in settings when readings books, but I don’t think I’ve succeeded in writing immersive settings in my books. How do you get inspiration for settings? Do you use real life places for ideas or how?

  15. With fall coming soon, and therefore thanksgiving, I imagined my question would fall around that time of the year and wanted to know: What are you ladies thankful for?
    And I started following Path2pub since it’s conception and it’s grown very much since then so I also would like to know: How it has impacted you ladies since you joined/began the site 😊

  16. Hi 🙂 I would like to know about making friends in the writing community? I’ve checked your twitters and you ladies seem to be well entrenched in the community with friends and CPs etc. How does a new writer in the community get to that level?

  17. How and at what point in your manuscript do you find your character voice? I’ve gotten feedback saying the person didn’t connect with my character voice, and I feel that’s one of the most crushing reason for rejection a writer can get. Do I’d love to know how you Contributors nail your character voice that you get requests, agents, and book deals 🙂
