Interview with Persephone Litchfield

What are you working on next?
Right now, I am rewriting old titles to make them quality shows, as well as some secret projects in the works.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Directing, editing, acting, I’m quite the workaholic these days.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Honestly, what gets my out of bed everyday is the possibility that something I write that day could inspire someone to write, or act, or fight their own situation or mental illness.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a play...a horrible play titled "Spider and Bailey" about two sisters, named, you guessed it, Spider and Bailey.
What is your writing process?
First, I interview people that resemble my characters, then I people watch. I'll go to malls and watch the age group I'm writing about walk around, I observe how the carry themselves, how they look at the world, facial expressions, everything. Creepy? Yes. Effective? Yes. Then I just write until I can't feel my fingers.
How do you approach cover design?
I use a program called Canva. It's easy and makes things fairly pretty looking.
What do you read for pleasure?
Plays. I read so many plays. My favorite being, "Proof" by David Auburn.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Oh my god, definitely my phone. It's easy to carry and small enough.
Describe your desk
Organized chaos. Lyrics to songs stacked on one side, my laptop in the middle, and a half full coffee cup consistently sitting on the left of me.
Why plays?
Plays are the best way, in my opinion, to really show the point of the piece. There's no paragraphs of description to get lost in. It's just the dialogue, Just the true intention of the work,
