I get a lot of interview requests from students doing papers and reports. I usually answer their questions. But this request, which came on Tuesday night, was an exception:
writing a report on Science Fiction Novelists. I would really appreciate it if you responded
ASAP, considering the fact that my paper is due Wed (tomorrow). Can I ask you these questions? If they are too personal, I
completely understand. But, they MUST be included in my paper.
- What is your salary?
- What is your typical day like when working?
- What college is recomended for writers/science fiction writers?
tell me where I could contact other writers ASAP.
I told him that a) I don't write science fiction novels, b) he shouldn't have waited until the last minute to contact the writers that he needed to talk to and c) that no, I wouldn't give him any contact information so that he could impose on my friends.
