A question for Luke Elliott

Q: What do you think is the single most important quality for a good writer to possess?

A: Persistence. There will be days you want to quit. There will be months where you feel like all you are doing is banging your head against the keyboard and producing nothing remotely readable. You will get rejections. Oh, so many rejections. Saying “persistence” might be trite, but as long as you continue to learn and grow, it’s the path to success.

About Luke Elliott

Luke Elliott was born and raised in the suburbs of central Florida. In his late twenties, he travelled across the country with his wife and two dogs to live in Portland, Oregon, where he fell in love with the city and a region with natural beauty as magical as any fantasy world. He has a B.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Florida where he studied and wrote both literature and poetry, and earned a MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. Now he writes mostly science fiction, fantasy, and horror, but will go wherever inspiration leads. In August of 2017, he launched the Ink to Film podcast with a filmmaker co-host, where he discusses books and their film adaptations from a writer’s point of view. In between writing and podcasting, he collects quality single malts and is always happy to pour a dram for company.
