Information
  • Are you a ...?
    Unpublished writer (so far)
    What genre do you primarily write in?
    General fiction
    Are your reading habits ...?
    Omnivorous
    Who is your favourite author(s)?
    Marilynne Robinson, Colm Toibin, Edward St Aubyn
    And your all time favourite books? (You can change these at any time, by the way ...)
    Middlemarch, The Golden Notebook, The End of the Affair, Colette’s The Cat
    What are your working habits when you write?
    Disciplined
    Are you the edit-every-sentence-ten-times type, or do you prefer to let rip?
    Prefer to let rip and edit afterwards
    Your ultimate writing ambition?
    To keep writing - I’d like to settle into my writing in a way that will allow me still to be writing decades in the future, and as happily as possible! In terms of output - I really want to write a musical at some stage, as well as further novels.
    Your worst habit?
    Doing too much work ‘off the page’. I have a tendency to overthink things, which can mean I produce thousands of words of background material, whole essays on research issues, etc, and then get a bit overwhelmed when I turn back to the manuscript itself.
    Your opinion on the books industry?
    It is a tough game, but everyone does their best
    Where do you write?
    In a spare room at a friend’s house
    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 worked in strategy consulting and finance before quitting to free up more time for writing. Not sure it’s left much of a trace, beyond a heavy reliance on spreadsheets for even the most trivial planning issues...
