I love it when famous authors agree with me about things 😉 For example, what Mr Warner says about similes in this excellent interview is exactly what I’ve been saying for years: you just have to be careful with them. There’s also great advice about planning novels and the truthfulness of stuff that’s made up. Enjoy.
