I live in England, in a town in which I was born. I love my country and very rarely venture beyond it. I’ve not even got a passport !
Tell me about your writing...genre, audience, etc...
I write poetry, mostly ‘ekphrastic’ poetry (spell checks hate that word). It simply means one piece of art informed or inspired by another. In my case it’s my photography which gives the lead. I also write imaginative narrative poetry from those passages in the bible which lend themselves to putting myself at the scene.
Where do you like to write?
Do you have a favourite muse/inspiration?
How do you maintain thoughts and ideas?
Do you have suggestions for newbie writers?
Two pieces of best advice for new writers - do not to get too ‘precious’ over first drafts – be ruthless with rewrites. (I rarely ‘complete’ a piece - I abandon them as I’m something of a perfectionist and am hardly ever completely satisfied with them.) Secondly, read a lot of your preferred genre – reading is never wasted time.
