Plotting with Dominoes – Lillian Li – Joined Up#99

It’s episode 99 and an interview with debut novelist, Lillian Li. Her book, Number One Chinese Restaurant is already picking up loads of critical buzz and she has a really interesting personal story behind her journey to publication as well as loads to say about plotting and the joy of writing.

Lillian is the author of the novel Number One Chinese Restaurant now released everywhere you can find books. Her other work has been published in the New York Times, Granta, Guernica, Glimmer Train, Bon Appetit, and Jezebel.

Follow her on Twitter @ZillianZi and check out her website here.

In my intro I recommended Morning Pages by Julia Cameron – here is her video giving an overview. I also talked about the excellent Growing Gills book by Jessica Abel and the fascinating YouTube Channel – Lessons From The Screenplay.
