PS: I was watching an interview where you said you used to write a book a month. That’s impressive! What was your process for that?
R.L.: Back in the height of Goosebumps in the ’90s, I did twelve Goosebumps books a year and twelve Fear Street books. I don’t know how I did it. Honestly, I don’t know how! I didn’t get out much, but I wrote a novel every two weeks. The way I could do it was to outline them all first, and I still do. Nobody wants to hear that — everybody hates to outline. Kids especially, they hate that advice. But I do a complete chapter-by-chapter outline of every book before I write it. Everything that’s going to happen in the book is in the outline. So when I sit down to write the book, I’ve done the hard part. I’ve done all the thinking, and then I can write really fast and just enjoy the writing because I’ve done all the work.
