No tips. No tips of any kind.

If you are going to be interviewed, might I suggest the following things to make life easier on you and your interviewer:

1. Speak up. Don't shout, but let's not make with the modest whispering, okay? Clearly, you have done something vaguely interesting. Be proud of it.
2. Have something to say. Don't have anything to say? Repeat back what you're asked. A good interviewer will feed you quotes. Repeat them back to her, and she will love you.
3. Feel free to ask questions of your own. This leads to things like actual conversation. And thusly good quotes. And you want good quotes, people. Otherwise, you sound like an ass and someone's got it all on tape.

These tips brought to you by your friendly neighborhood writer.
