Attraction Conventional

Attraction is what happens between you. It's not universal. And it's not conventional. And thank God for that.

More Other Having

Having a conversation on a landline is more intimate than talking to someone in person. Your voices are so clear and close - you're in each other's heads.

- Rainbow Rowell

Next Some Rant

I feel like some sort of fiction-writing hobo, jumping trains and always hoping I'll find a good place to start a fire in the next town. And I keep having these panicky episodes where I corner my husband and rant at him: 'I don't have anywhere to write! I can't write! I don't have a place to write!'

Before Never Turned

I'd never written a novel before, and I wrote a novel, and that turned out OK.

Love Why Other

I find love stories satisfying when you can see the work - when you can really watch people find each other and fall in love, a little bit at a time. I like slow burns. Falling in love is so good; why would you want to rush it?

Distance Missed Signals

A landline is an anchor - busy signals, long distance bills, missed connections and all.

Love Romance Big

I can't seem to help writing love stories. I definitely crave romance. When I was young, I craved romance in books, but I didn't want to read just romance - love plays such a big part in our lives, it shouldn't be cut out and restricted to its own fiction.

- Rainbow Rowell

Always Read Stories

I enjoy stories about thin women - I read them frequently. I enjoy them; I root for those characters, but I always feel like there are enough of them out there and there are enough of them in the spotlight.

- Rainbow Rowell

Will Happen I Write

I tend to write about my anxieties - it's what I'm afraid will happen. And I write a story working it out.

- Rainbow Rowell

Fantasy Like Fiction

I like science fiction, I like fantasy, I like time travel, so I had this idea: What if you had a phone that could call into the past?

- Rainbow Rowell

Phones Cell Phones About

I'm not complaining about my cell phone - all my friends are in there, and all my favorite songs and all my favorite Benedict Cumberbatch GIFs; I don't want to give it up. But cell phones are the worst for talking on the phone.

- Rainbow Rowell

Think Like Bookstores

If you were an alien who came to our bookstores - or browsed our teen magazines - you'd think that only Earth girls who look like Mila Kunis ever got any action.

- Rainbow Rowell

My Life Finally Took

I was in my mid 20s when email finally took off. Until then, the phone was my primary way of connecting with the people in my life.

- Rainbow Rowell

Books Starbucks Four

I wrote all four of my books at Starbucks.

Character Mind Single

In my mind, every single female character I've written is plus-size.

- Rainbow Rowell

Lovely Starbucks Mine

My favorite Starbucks is nice - Omaha Starbucks stores tend to be friendlier than big-city ones, and the baristas are especially lovely at mine - but it's still a Starbucks.

- Rainbow Rowell

Smiling Goal Comedy

With 'Attachments,' my goal was to write a really good romantic comedy. I wanted the reader to be smiling throughout.

Love Other Actually

When you actually fall in love, no one sees that other person the way that you do.
