The madness of writing: an interview with Catherine McNamara

Posted on December 11, 2013 at 6:00 AM

Recently, I was interviewed by Catherine McNamara. She asked me to talk about my collection of short stories and my writing process.  

Generally, writing is a solitary experience, it is not something you can share during the process of doing it and most writers would agree that it is unlucky, to talk about it before a piece is finished. That is not to say that writing is a lonely experience, not at all: it is a place inhabited by fictional characters, landscapes and scenery. Do take a look:

I agree with you that writing is mostly a solitary experience of sitting down and allowing things to flow. I find it a magical experience, especially when a particular character seems to take command and "write the story" from there. Gives me chills. Great interview, too. I'm looking forward to reading the stories.
