Meet The Author Moment With Bonnie Trachtenberg / @writebrainedny / @RobertsoKing / #LLm

Good morning! Today on our Meet The Author Moment, we’re featuring Bonnie Trachtenberg!

The Interview

Bonnie-59r[AC]: Why do you write?

[BT]: I write because I’m a passionate person and it’s so important for me to express myself. Writing seems to be my main God-given gift—or at least the one that comes most naturally.

[AC]: What do you absolutely need at your desk while writing?

[BT]: A cold bottle of my favorite Zero Vitamin Water: acai-blueberry-pomegranate

[AC]: Do you have a special time to write, or how is your day structured? 

[BT]: After a long hiatus due to chronic fatigue and marketing burnout, I’m back to working on my book. However, I do find it so easy to procrastinate (especially if I’m imprudent enough to sign on to Facebook!) Therefore, as of late, I’ve been doing only the chores I absolutely have to do first thing in the morning and then forcing myself to sit down in front of the computer (with my book draft open!) early in the day when my mind is still relatively fresh.

[AC]: What is the hardest thing about writing?

[BT]: For me, the hardest thing is just getting started on it each day. I suppose the thought of how difficult and sometimes overwhelming it can be to write a novel sometimes makes me want to avoid it entirely. Once I get past that and into the flow of the book, I’m usually somewhat productive. 

[AC]: What is the easiest thing about writing?

[BT]: The easiest thing is that you can do it anywhere: at home, at Starbucks, at the library, or even at a hotel on vacation. My laptop is pleasantly mobile, but even when I don’t have it with me, I always carry a notebook and pen, or use the “notes” app on my iPhone for brainstorming.
