I did a lot of interviewing over a long career as a print journalist. But it was rare that I got interviewed during that time. Answering the questions, I’d learn later as an author, is a lot different than asking the questions. I think of the interview as a cousin to public speaking. With either, you’ll do better if you know your subject, drill down to a few key messages, and if you practice, practice, and practice some more. This is important and the time to think about it is long before the interview. So Tip 1 – stop thinking like a novelist and start thinking like a reporter.
