In a short new interview with Suffolk Magazine (the online version of Suffolk Alumni Magazine publication for the graduates of Suffolk University in Boston), Lauren talks about her iconic role of Lorelai Gilmore and her inspiration to write her first novel “Someday, Someday, Maybe“:
Did you always know you wanted to write a novel?
In the acknowledgements of Someday, Someday, Maybe, I thank Diane Keaton, for telling me “you should write a book one day,” but even after she said that, it was years before I ever did anything about it. I could have gone my whole life being perfectly happy that someone I looked up to had said such an encouraging thing to me, without ever actually trying to see if she was right. I wish I could tell you angels sang and I looked up and 300 pages had written themselves, but it wasn’t anything so mystical. Even when I thought what I was doing was dumb and a bad idea — I just kept going. In both writing and acting, I’ve seen that one difference between having a dream, and having a dream come true, is plain, old-fashioned, hard work. Even then, there’s still no guarantee, but I know for sure you have a better chance of having your novel published if it’s written on actual paper. The one that’s still brewing in your mind is much harder for people to read.
