“The Interview”

What does a writing success mean to you?

To me a writing success is writing with feeling, taking all that is inside of you that needs to be expressed and putting it down on paper; then finding the courage to allow other people to read your inner thoughts, that is a writing success.

Who or what influences your writing the most?

What influences me the most is people, and the events of the world. I will see something on television. Hear people around me talking, read a post on social media and write what I believe the deeper emotion is, what I may feel in that moment.

Do you have a system for writing?

No, I do not have a system for writing. I write during the wee hours of the night but mostly on the weekend. I write in moments borrowed when I am not working, cooking or spending time with my children.

If you could sit down with anyone (living, dead or fictional) and have a long conversation, who would it be?

My mother, she has been passed for ten years now but there is so much I wish to talk to her about.

What is the one thing that you find challenging in your writing work?

I find writing poetry without rhyming a challenge for me. I also have dubbed writing anything beyond poetry challenging although I must admit I haven’t tried to write anything else yet, so I am caught in my own fear of the unknown.

Final Thought:

"Some advice I would give to an inspiring writer is never stop writing. Life will not always afford you time to think let alone provide you with the time you need to write. I must insist that you fit it in, make time to write as you make time for everything else you will find the time you take out for yourself is the most rewarding.”
