  • Are you a ...?
    Unpublished writer (so far)
    What genre do you primarily write in?
    Historical fiction
    Are your reading habits ...?
    Who is your favourite author(s)?
    Deirdre Madden, Muriel Spark, Elizabeth Bowen
    And your all time favourite books? (You can change these at any time, by the way ...)

    What are your working habits when you write?
    Are you the edit-every-sentence-ten-times type, or do you prefer to let rip?
    Some self-editing
    Your ultimate writing ambition?
    To write a publishable novel but not necessarily to be published
    Your worst habit?
    Over-complicating my prose, trying to be nifty with unspoken references but only exasperating my confused reader
    Your opinion on the books industry?
    Too much celebrity and hype, but good books still get through
    Where do you write?
    Either in bed or at a small table alongside some books and filing relevant to the novel. There's also the ironing board - relevant only to ironing but can be a handy extra surface.
    What else do you want Word Clouders to know? eg: do you have 9 cats / like paragliding / eat nothing but tinned fish / work in the bath / live in Kettering?
    I like to write in bursts of 20 - 40 minutes, and can't work with music playing
