#12: The Soldier That Read My Screenplays While at War by Lila McLaughlin

The release of her book, G.I. Hollywood, is a celebratory moment for author/screenwriter Lila McLaughlin, but it’s also a time to make sense of her unique relationship with the subject of her book, a war veteran, and a period in her life where she couldn’t write for several years. (Lila’s novel: G.I. Hollywood)

“As a writer, I know that a finished work is the result of a series of work-in-progress versions.  But sometimes, I forget that the author herself is the result of a life-in-progress.  Lila’s conversation was a refreshing reminder of this.  Though we were both celebrating the release of Lila’s first novel, Lila takes the conversation into a deeper space and examines her writing career from the time she couldn’t write for years until now.  It was a fantastic talk about writing and writers.  Also, we mention Suge Knight twice.”
