Welcome to my Writer Wednesday feature! Each week, I interview one fellow writer, who could be at any stage of their writing career. The aim of this feature is twofold: to showcase a fellow writer and to find out more about him/her, and hopefully to find in their answers some helpful hints to help out with your own writing! The interview questions are the same for everyone, but each interviewee gets a unique Kung Fu KAPOW! Question. Watch out for them, they’re doozies!
Today’s guest writer is…
Sylvia van Bruggen
When did you start writing?
I published my first poem at age 9/10, so I think I have been writing ever since I have learned to write.
What genres do you write?
Fantasy and science fiction.
Sum up your current WiP in 10 words or less.
He must answer his calling, even if it means death.
What’s your ultimate goal as a writer?
To write everyday.
How close are you to achieving this goal?
I wish I could say I am there, but I still get dragged down whenever there are bad things happening.
Any quirky writing habits?
Don’t know if it’s quirky enough but I do love to write with the TV on when I am really stuck in a story. That way my brain is distracted enough so the story can tell itself.
Kung Fu KAPOW! Question:
If you were limited to reading just ONE genre for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?
Just one genre, geesh.
After a long ponder I pick Science Fiction. Even though my current WiP is high fantasy, I think I have more ideas for sci-fi to keep me entertained for a long time.
