As a young prince of Athens, he participated in a lottery that required seven girls and seven boys to be taken to Crete and thrown into a labyrinth to be destroyed by the Minotaur. In one version of the myth, this excessively cruel punishment resulted from the Athenians opposing Crete in a war. You can see depictions of this in ancient sculpture and vase paintings. After I read that book, I could never go back to thinking of the labyrinth as simply a maze, except perhaps ethically.
It will always be an arena to me. DL: But in this case, you dispensed with the Minotaur. Instead, the arena harkens more to gladiator vs. What influenced this construction? SC: A fascination with the gladiator movies of my childhood, particularly Spartacus. Some novelists start with a character and then find a story through that character, but with The Hunger Games I believe you had the idea for the story first, and then Katniss stepped into it.
Where did she come from? SC: Katniss appeared almost immediately after I had the idea, standing by the bed with that bow and arrow.
Love Suzanne (Part II)
I used archers very sparingly because they required light and the Underland has little natural illumination. But a bow and arrow can be handmade, shot from a distance, and weaponized when the story transitions into warfare. She was a born archer. Her name came later, while I was researching survival training and specifically edible plants.
In one of my books, I found the arrowhead plant, and the more I read about it, the more it seemed to reflect her. Its Latin name has the same roots as Sagittarius, the archer. The edible tuber roots she could gather, the arrowhead-shaped leaves were her defense, and the little white blossoms kept it in the tradition of flower names, like Rue and Primrose. I looked at the list of alternative names for it. Swamp Potato. Duck Potato. Katniss easily won the day. I thought the book would be in the third person like The Underland Chronicles.
Her deep love for Prim. Those are the elements that seemed essential to me. With some stories, revealing that could be illuminating, but in the case of The Hunger Games, I think it would only be a distraction unless it was part of a new tale within the world of Panem. DL: When did Peeta and Gale come into the equation? SC: Peeta and Gale appeared quickly, less as two points on a love triangle, more as two perspectives in the just-war debate. Gale, because of his experiences and temperament, tends toward violent remedies. DL: Why is Peeta a baker? It seemed in keeping with his character to be a baker, a life giver.

Bread can contribute to life or death in The Hunger Games. DL: When it comes to larger world building, how much did you know about Panem before you started writing? I knew 12 would be coal and most of the others were set, but I had a few blanks that naturally filled in as the story evolved. When I was little we had that board game, Game of the States, where each state was identified by its exports. And even today we associate different locations in the country with a product, with seafood or wine or tech.

No district exists entirely by its designated trade. DL: Where do you write? Are you a longhand writer or a laptop writer? Do you listen to music as you write, or go for the monastic, writerly silence? SC: I write best at home in a recliner. Definitely not music; it demands to be listened to. I like quiet, but not silence.
