hi leigh, it's a pleasure to have the opportunity to talk to you. I was always wondering how you're handling all your jobs at the same time..being an author, working as a make up artist

Hi! Good evening! :-) I have a question: Do you follow a strict concept when writing, or are you more guided by ad-hoc ideas?

Hey Leigh! First of all, it's really nice to have you here. Thanks so much for taking the time to connect with your German fans. And now here's what I would like to know: Did you know right from the start how you would end the Grisha trilogy? Did you know that Alina will end up with Mal right from the start? If so, did you think that the only way for Alina and Mal to be together would be for Alina to lose her powers? Honestly, I was a little sad that Alina lost her powers because they were part of her, part of who she was. I was glad that Alina and Mal were together in the end, don't get me wrong, but I hoped that she would still be able to keep her powers (But if she had kept her powers she wouldn't have been able to be with Mal. She would have probably ended up with Nikolai, right?). Sorry for the long question(s).

Hi Leigh, nice to meet you here! I have already read the first pages of Shadow and Bone and your short story (The Witch of Duva) and I'm really impressed. :) My first question: Why is your world inspired by Russia?

Oh my gosh, thanks for answering our questions. I´m so glad to get the chance to talk to you. How long does it take from the idea about Alina and the darkling until the story was finished?

Hey everyone! Sorry for the slow start, I'm just getting the hang of this. Very happy to be here. Time to answer some questions :)

Dear Leigh, so great to have the opportunity to chat with you! Are you writing on a new book(series)? I (and i think i'm not the only one here ;)) would like to read more from you!

second question :-) what is your personaly favorite scene / most important scene of the books?
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@MoonlightBN Plotting and writing are basically the same things for me. I write an "outline" but it's really a one page draft of the whole story, 12 essential moments or sequences. Then I go in and begin filling in the gaps. So I always have a whole book in front of me—even if it's a very short book.

Dear Leigh, I would like to know what time of day you write the most? Do you need absolute quiet to write or do you listen also music? How old were you when you first started writing? Is there a character from your books, which is particularly close to you?
Selen18
19.09.2014
It's so great, that you are here. :) Leigh which actor or actress would you prefer, if the Grischa-Trilogy would be filmed? Has your life changed a lot since your books are so successful? Thank you for answering my questions.

First, thank you for answering questions today. :) Now: After I finished "Ruin and Rise" I was heartbroken. And I still am. Reading reviews online made clear that I am not the only one. Many would have liked another ending. Yet while I would love a super-happy-unrealistic ending with everyone alive and happy and with Alinas powers not being snatched away from her, I am quite content with the ending you have written. I believe it is the best ending Alina could have gotten. So, now to my question: Was it hard for you to stick with this ending? Did you think (while you were writing or even after you had finished) that maybe you should rewrite it? With Mal dying or Alina marrying Nikolaj, or her keeping her powers? Or have you always been absolutely certain about the path you've chosen?

Dear Leigh, how does it feel to know that your books are being read all over the world in more than 20 different languages?
Leigh Bardugo

@JeanyAnn from the time I got the idea to when I actually showed it to strangers, took just under a year.

I see! =) And how long did it all take? The whole series (including first ideas ^^).

The story of Baghra is so great, but will we ever find out the name of her sister?
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@Mausi honestly, I don't balance anything well at all lol. I no longer work in makeup and special effects because I simply couldn't take jobs AND meet my writing deadlines. But I'm still happy to bring out the false eyelashes and glitter when Halloween comes around.

If you sometimes have no idea what do you want to write, or you only missing the right words to formulate it, what do you do in this situation? Do you sometimes become angry in this situation? Nearly to freak out?

Dear Leigh, I am so happy I have this opportunity to ask you some questions 'in person'. I only read the first book of the trilogy so far, but I instantly fell in love with its world and the characters. I would like to ask three things. Do you have any favourite mythological stories? What was the best book you ever read? Or the one that had the biggest impact on you? And last: how could you describe the character of Darkling? Thank you for answering.
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@Andreea Yes, I always knew how the trilogy would end, but regarding what happened to Alina that wasn't about who she would end up with romantically. Remember in the first book: What is infinte? The universe and the greed of men. Tampering with merzost never works out well, even if you're a hero, even if your intentions are supposedly good.
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@Alinschn Thank you! And I'd love to visit Germany again!

Do you have a favourite character in the series?
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@Katja87 Finishing the trilogy was surprisingly emotional. It was very hard to say goodbye to these characters.

Hey Leigh. Thanks for answering our questions. I would like to know, why you choose this Russia-like Setting for the story. I really love this, because its so different from other fantasy-stories.
Andreea
19.09.2014
Thanks so much for answering my questions, Leigh.
MoonlightBN
19.09.2014
Yeah! Wolke3 asked a question I am also curious about. What is so fascinating/interesting about Russia? I just love the setting! =D
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@cleeblatt I chose Russia as the cultural inspiration for my world because it fit well with the dynamics that had started to emerge in the story—a conscripted army of young soldiers, a great divide between rich and poor, the failure to industrialize. Also, I love Russian folklore and I wanted to take readers someplace a bit different than the usual Medieval European setting.
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@HappyAnn Hmm, either Genya or Sturmhond. I'd love to have Genya's powers before a party. And I'd just love to have Sturmhond's confidence—and take a ride on a flying ship :)

What person (dead or alive) would you like to spend a day with if you could, and why?
safaripoet
19.09.2014
What was the first scene you ever wrote for the series? Did it end up in the book?
Stephie2309
19.09.2014
Can you tell us something about your next project? Another series? What genre?
Katja87
19.09.2014
Thanks for the answer. Do you have an favourite author yourself, you absolutely love to read?
Leigh Bardugo
19.09.2014
@simone.zitrone.9 yes! I'm working on a new series right now. It's set in the same world as the Grisha trilogy, but in a different country (Kerch, where Nikolai went to university) and has a very different cast of characters. The first book should be out in the US sometime next autumn.

19.09.2014
If you could spend a day as a character of any book or movie, which one would it be?
Andreea

I have another question: When will the 'Shadow and Bone' movie be produced?
