Veronica Roth took to her Tumblr yesterday to respond to several questions that fans have asked regarding Divergent, Allegiant and her connection to the stories she writes.
In a new blog post on Tumblr, Veronica Roth responded to her fans questions. One of which regarded her thoughts on the process of the filming of the ‘Divergent’ movie.
I have good relationships with the people who worked on the Divergent movie— they were (are!) very kind and welcoming and respectful of the source material. They asked me questions when they had them (which they did on a fairly regular basis), they showed me the script, and they kept me well informed of what was going on. They also cracked jokes with me, chatted with me, brought me fruit-by-the-foots from craft services, got to know my husband, and were super nice to my whole family. Extra mega bonus points for lovely human beings, all around.
In response to a question concerning her future career as a writer, she responded:
You know, I get this question a lot, and I’m always a little confused by it until I realize that people don’t actually live inside my brain (obviously!) so they don’t just assume the answer. The answer is, I was a writer before Divergent and I’ll be a writer for a long time afterward, if I have anything to say about it— it’s been my passion since sixth grade and I’ve never found an activity I enjoy even half as much. I’m not sure what I’ll write next or how long it will take me to finish it and polish it, but yes, I’m going to keep working and trying to get books published until they don’t let me do it anymore.
