Whispers from the Abyss is the blog of horror/suspense author Richard Schiver.
Today, Richard has kindly posted a wee little interview with moi, asking when I first considered myself a writer, what I’m passionate about, and more.
Despite the romantic ideal of the lonely author locked up in a cave somewhere, inscribing words on a stone tablet fuelled only by alcohol and caffeine, I ultimately believe that writing is for readers. If you don’t want someone to read that story one day, why write it down? I think that’s why I only recently began to think of myself as a writer — because previously I wasn’t really writing to share.
Are you a writer if you don’t have readers? If a tree falls in an empty forest, does it make a sound?
