Why do you write?  Morbid curiosity. How did you come to writing? It came to me. I am, it seems, a word magnet. What were your greatest obstacles starting out? How did you overcome them? Self-doubt and therapy. How do you keep yourself motivated and disciplined? I have bad habits to feed – buying records,…

Why do you write?  I am driven to write, but I don’t always enjoy getting in the car—I find first-drafts excruciating! I write because I enjoy wrangling that first-draft into something that I’m chuffed with. Oddly enough, I write not because I enjoy it, but because I enjoy having written. How did you come to…

Why do you write?  Writing lets me explore the insides of things, the ordinary and the extraordinary; to record all the moments that pass by daily in life. It’s a privilege to have a job that lets you try to create connections between things, and try to explore the cracks and possibilities between them. And…

Why do you write?  It’s an addiction. I think we are all hardwired to tell stories and it’s a pure mental challenge to discover what exactly this story is, that is knocking at the inside of your head. How did you come to writing? I’ve always been a big reader, but I only started writing…

Why do you write?    I write because it is an important way of me being in the world, unpacking my thoughts, and releasing my imagination and soulfulness.  I just can’t imagine being without writing as a tool of discovery and creation.   I love telling stories, and creating beautiful writing pieces to make people…

Why do you write?  I write because it helps me make sense of the world and it’s fun! Writing is a great companion and though it hasn’t made me rich, it has enriched my life immeasurably. How did you come to writing? I loved to write stories as a child and as a young adult…

Why do you write?  I’ve always told myself stories. Usually, at bedtime, lying in bed, waiting to go to sleep. I’ve been asking around and apparently a lot of writers do this. It probably explains why we’re generally such bad sleepers. How did you come to writing? I always carried a notebook around with me…

Why do you write?  It’s something inherent within me. It’s something I’ve always done, even as a young child. All of my school reports dating back to grade one say that I am creative and great at making up stories, but need to focus on maths more! How did you come to writing? I think it came…

Why do you write? For me, writing is as much about self-exploration as it is about giving readers a story they might engage with. Much of my drive to write comes from having a visceral response to certain issues, whether that response is anger, frustration, joy or sadness. In the case of my novel Grace’s…

Why do you write?  I write because it is impossible not to.  At some points in my life I have painted instead of writing but if I don’t have an outlet for creativity I go a bit crazy. I know writing also drives me nuts but not writing makes it worse. How did you come…
