Livian Yeh Interview

How did you become a writer?

I’ve always been interested in storytelling, but I became a writer through lots and lots of trial and error. And tears.

What inspires you to write?

The complexity of people and their behaviors. Also, I love a good love story.

How do you develop your plot and characters?

I try to let my characters drive the plot, but Bryn Donovan’s notecard plotting method has been lifechanging.

Could you share some of your challenges as a writer?

I definitely struggle with patience and confidence.

Tell me about your protagonist. What's your favorite trait and/or weakness?

My protagonist is a diversity trainer, and my favorite trait of her is her empathy. Least favorite trait is what a pushover she can be.

What are your current/future projects?

A romance novel about dumplings and making my off-Broadway debut as a playwright.

Do you have a routine you follow when writing?

I have a day job so I write whenever I can! And prioritizing rest really helps.
