Is there a different writing method you us for writing books like American Gods vs. writing Sandman?

neil-gaiman:

Nope. The writing method is always the same. It mostly consists of walking up and down, making tea, glaring at the screen or the notebook, and chewing the end of my pen.

neil-gaiman:

Okay. I googled. This is what I found - a collection of quotes by me on fanfiction. For the curious, or at least, for the dozen or so people who ask each day…

rocking-horse:

All quotes are taken from Neil’s website,

Exhibit A

Do you read any fanfiction?…

Hello! I wanted to ask if you thought writers without college educations could make it (get published, make money from book sales, etc.). I had a really bad time with high school due to depression and family situations and such and between that and financial issues, long story short I'm not going to be able to get into college. But I can write, and I just want to know if I'm being naive thinking I'll be able to do well at it.

neil-gaiman:

If you can write things that make people turn the page you’ll be fine. Nobody will ask to see your qualifications.

By the same token, no amount of qualifications will make someone turn the page if she’s bored.

This is a children’s book

What book

It’s called Skulduggery Pleasant?  I haven’t gotten around to reading it myself yet, but it sounds really cool.
