I was interviewed recently by The Book Salon, a smashing site for writers and readers. It’s the first interview I’ve done in a while and it gave me chance to reflect on the various, mostly baby-related, changes in my life this last year.
I encourage you to head over and read the full interview, but to whet your appetite, here are some brief titbits.
On a good writing day:
There’s really nothing like putting a paragraph together that you know is just right. The tricky bit, of course, is stitching all those paragraphs together. That comes later.
On thinking like a writer:
People get so hung up on labels – now more than ever – and I’ve never really seen the point. Much better that we get on with what we do and let our work do its thing.
On having an ideal reader:
There are plenty of authors, published or otherwise, who openly admit to writing for a specific audience because it’s where the market is. I can’t think of anything worse.
