John le Carre
The word actress has always seemed less a job description to me than a title.
Someone once told me that being in the closet is like living in a vertical casket. Perfect description.
I grew up watching stand-ups and thought it was so entertaining and unique - you didn't see that as a job description anywhere.
For me, writing for kids is harder because they're a more discriminating audience. While adults might stay with you, if you lose your pacing or if you have pages of extraneous description, a kid's not going to do that. They will drop the book.
