Quick Six PRO with Cain Berlinger

Q: What's the most time-consuming part of a writer's life?
Cain Berlinger: The most time consuming thing for a writer is almost everything that comes after the piece is finished. The PR, the rewrites, even second guessing yourself in some cases.

Q: What should a writer's priority be?
Cain Berlinger: A writer's priority is to touch the readers' emotions, intellectually and sexually.

Q: What advice do you give aspiring authors?
Cain Berlinger: For an aspiring author: they should write, write, and write some more. You DO improve with practice.

Q: What makes an editor great or...not so great?
Cain Berlinger: A great editor is an editor where the writer says 'you're right' more often that they say "you're wrong"

Q: If you've ventured into self-publishing, what are the pros and cons?
Cain Berlinger: Self publishing gives you total control and all the monies. You never really feel validated though as an author until someone else wants to read your stuff.

Q: Do you have a preference for short stories of longer works?
Cain Berlinger: I prefer short stories, it's a personal choice; it reflects my own attention span.
