Q&A With "Remember to Forget" Author Deborah Raney
- Tuesday, April 10, 2007
What advice would you give to a person trying to become a fiction writer?
The most important thing I could say is to read and read and read some more. Read in the genre you would like to write. Then, read books on the craft of writing. How I wish I’d done that in the beginning! I honestly wasn’t even aware there were such books available when I began! But I’d have saved myself so much time and so many mistakes had I heeded that one simple word of advice.
What message would you like your readers to take away from "Remember to Forget"?
We have all been given the amazing opportunity for a fresh start and a new life in Christ. No matter what we’ve done or what we’ve been, Jesus came to give us a brand new life, to make us a brand new creation. All we have to do is accept His gift.
What is your goal or mission as a writer?
My goal is first to entertain. I want to tell a story that will draw the reader into a fascinating world of new possibilities. And once they’re there, I want them to be strengthened to face the difficulties in their own lives, I want them to learn more about the nature of a loving God, and I want them to know hope for the future through Him.
