This week’s topic for E’M’s Sunday Ramble is “Creativity & Imagination?“.
Here are the questions:
- When did you first discover your love of writing? Since I could write my own name, I’ve always loved writing. I used to write little stories for Starsky and Hutch, hoping I could send them off. When I was twelve I wrote a story about two girls being kidnapped to go into a harem. There is nothing better than creating a world that was once only in your head.
- Would you say that you found your imagination at a young age or when you became older? If you want to, share something you discovered with your imagination. (Be sure to copyright your post ) At a young age I knew there was a whole world of imagination waiting to be set free. I’ve been writing for so many years, and when I don’t write, it feels wrong.
- What is your favorite genre to write about? (Example: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, True Crime, etc.) Domestic Noir. My first book ”Sticks and Stones” was written because I was bullied as a child. It was a kind of therapy writing a story with a happy ending. My second book ”It Won’t Happen Again” focussed on domestic violence. I wanted to highlight that it happens within any family and can go by unnoticed by those close to their loved ones.
- Do you ever get “writer’s block”? If so, do you have a reason of why it happens? I get writer’s block, but mostly it is because of self doubt. I write something, but don’t feel like it is good enough. I end up deleting what I’ve written because I lack the confidence to write it on the page.
- Can you tell me something that I do not know that you do not mind sharing about your style of writing? I am quite poetic with my writing, and it tends to be quite flowy. I am not great at describing the world around my main character, and I need to work on that. In the last year I have started writing plays, and really enjoying the change of style. You have to be more succinct with your writing, and the backstory clear because you cannot have the amount of words in a novel. We all have our own style of writing.
