G & T Show Shore Leave 2015 Coverage – Aaron Rosenberg Interview
At the 2015 Shore Leave convention, intrepid reporter Janice (our very own Science Officer) conducted an interview with writer Aaron Rosenberg.
Janice first asked just how Aaron got into writing. He has been writing since he was a child, and even won an award when he was in elementary school. When he speaks to children about writing, he often brings the plaque with him as it encouraged him then, and it still does.
He reports that his convention experiences are a lot like seeing old friends, where you can just pick up where you left off if you have not seen someone for a long time.
Specifically, when he writes teenagers, he also likes to engage in teenaged writing workshops. After all, in a way, that is how he and many of his fellow authors got started. This is the way that he gives back to the writing community. These are more plot or character-focused, in order to really help budding authors perfect their craft.
His most recent novel is an urban fantasy.
When asked about any of his characters and plonking them into a Star Trek holodeck fantasy, Aaron chose DuckBob and would love to throw him into the Sherlock Holmes program.
When asked about general writing advice, Aaron said to just kind of roll with things, if you can. Some writing works, and some does not. He also suggests surrounding yourself with good friends as that helps make life worthwhile.
