Here are the rules that I follow for each interview I write. I hope they will be a guide for you.
Rule #1: Remember that a story you write about someone tells the reader as much about you as it does the subject.
Rule #2: Write each story as if you were writing it about yourself; therefore, you will be sure to portray the individual, not only in the best light possible but also comprehensively and completely. In other words, write about others as you would have them write about you.
Rule #3: Write each story as though you were going to die at dawn, and it would be your last work and the one that the world will remember you by.
