A Little Writer Meme

I found this author meme and thought it was a bit of fun, what are your answers? Share them in the comments below!

Which words do you use too much in your writing?

“Felt” is a word I’ve been getting stuck on lately. My editor told me to remove them as it’s taking the reader away from the story so I’m retraining my brain not to use it and make the reader more engaged with what I’m trying to write.

What’s your favourite piece of writing by you?

I wrote a short story for Des Moines Abaton magazine which was my first published piece, I’m still quite proud of it 🙂

Regrets, do you have a few? Is there anything you wish you hadn’t written?

I wish I had persevered with self-publishing earlier and learned earlier on to write what I love rather than what I think I should write. I wrote a historical romance a few years ago and published it, while I am glad I had the experience of writing it, in hindsight, I shouldn’t have published but it provided a lot of lessons so it’s not a bad thing, just a thing.

How has your writing made a difference? What do you consider your most important piece of writing?

I wrote this article about being LGBTQ+ and working in engineering, it was the first conversation that was had in the company about being LGBTQ+ and I got a lot of fantastic feedback on it and it got the conversation started on rainbow diversity for the company and I’m quite proud of it.

Name three favourite words

Hello, peaceful, thrive.

…And three words you’re not so keen on

Moist, plunge, plinth

Do you have a writing mentor, role model or inspiration?

I don’t have direct mentoring relationships but there are a number who I learn from, Joanna Penn, the SPP boys, Shelly Davies and so many more!

What’s your writing ambition?

To build a body of work and help bring LGBTQ+ characters into genre fiction
