Thank you for making amazing books that inspired me to start writting again!

Okay question time...

Go Kazu-wa! I'm shy too, but when I'm talking to my favorite author... I just forget about that little detail. Here's my questions:

How do you feel when you go on tours and meet fans who are obsessed with your books? (Like me :D)

Would you ever like to try a different job, other than writing? Which one?

Do you like editing a novel? What is working with your editor like?

I'll stop there, don't want to scare Scott away with the millions of questions I have! ;)

Ya, I'm shy too. Here goes.

What advice do you give to aspiring writers, like me?

How do you know where to start a book?

Where do you get suck awesome ideas for character names? I can never come up with good ones. I read your book, Bogus to Bubbly, but I still can't believe you came up with suck awesome names.

Thanks!

Okay, I just have one.

How do you do your world-building, Scott-la? The worlds of Uglies and Leviathan are just amazing! I want to write worlds as good as yours. Please give me some tips!

That's all. Thank you!

That's a really good question Hope-la. Can't wait till he answers it. Then he can tell everyone, like me too.

I know. I've only seen a few other book's worlds (The Hunger Games!) that compare to it.
