What is Lauren Oliver's secret to writing? Consistency! In this episode of "How a Book Is Made," Lauren discusses her personal writing process—from the challenge of writing 1,000 words every day and the importance of refining a story through multiple drafts to the risks and rewards of soliciting early feedback from trusted readers.
ABOUT THE SPINDLERS: When Liza's brother, Patrick, changes overnight, Liza knows exactly what has happened: The spindlers have gotten to him and stolen his soul. She knows, too, that she is the only one that can save him.
To rescue Patrick, Liza must go Below, armed with little more than her wits and a broom. There, she uncovers a vast world populated with talking rats, music-loving moles, greedy troglods, and overexcitable nids . . . as well as terrible dangers. But she will face her greatest challenge at the spindlers' nests, where she encounters the evil queen and must pass a series of deadly tests — or else her soul, too, will remain Below forever.
