Actress Lauren Graham Talks Sequel Novel in a Reddit AMA

laurenActress Lauren Graham has been working on a sequel to her novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe.

During a Reddit AMA session, Graham (pictured, via) discussed her acting career and gave this teaser about her second book: “Franny gets a job, and spends a year in LA where she realizes she’s too pale to drive a convertible (autobiographical alert!).” She also revealed that for her, sitting down everyday and staying focused on the manuscript is the hardest part of the writing process.

One participant asked Graham for writing advice on how to stay motivated. She shared this tip: “Don’t stop working just because it isn’t perfect. Get to the end of the story before you judge it. You can always rewrite, but only if it exists!” Do you agree with Graham’s nugget of wisdom?
