The questions I must answer:
1. What are you working on?
I work all the time on different projects and none of them have a name until the project feels finished.
2. How does your work differ from others of its genre?
I don’t know if my work differs much from other’s works, I feel; I read a lot and process other works. I like to write in short declarative sentences. Maybe that is how I differ from others.
3. Why do you write what you do?
I do what I do because I am full of ideas. I like to see if those ideas work or fail. I’m never bored that way.
4. How does your writing process work?
I’ve been mapping my writing/creative process and what I’ve noticed is I become detached and hyper-focused. The periphery becomes more blurred and what I have created more salient as I build its structure and voice/tone.
