5 Burning Questions With Tom Monteleone

  1. What’s the worst thing about writing?
The concept of not getting paid for your work.
  1. What do you do when people ask “How’s your writing goin?
I tell them the same as it’s been for the last forty years. . .which is smokin’!
  1. Describe your thoughts on writing (either your own or in general) using as many nouns as possible.

Entertaining. Illuminating. Demanding. Fulfilling. Nouns? What nouns?

  1. What is it about your discipline (fiction/poverty/nonfiction/other) that draws you to it?
The challenge of doing it better each time I touch the keyboard. 
  1. What’s your favorite word or words? What about it/them appeals to you?

My favorite word is Tom—for obvious reasons. 

Bonus question: Macgyver has been rebooted and stars the actor who played “Havok” in the X-Men reboots. Like, what’s going on with that? How do you feel? Does it comfort you to know that while the new Macgyver doesn’t have a mullet, his hair is quite voluminous?

I didn’t watch the original iteration and have no need to watch the mullet-less one either.
