FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
In Quizzing I share some questions that can be put to your characters to help you find out more about them (especially their hidden depths) before you write for/about them. I look at whether they have any regrets (a useful thing to know given regrets can change/inhibit behaviour) and what they really want. There are, of course, lots of questions you could put to a character but I think the three I’ve shared here are amongst the most useful you could ask.

I share another extract from when I was interviewed by fellow writer, Jacci Gooding. (Her short story collection, A Collection of Unsettling Stories, really does live up to its name!). I take a look at the million dollar question – where do I find my ideas?
My second post here tonight looks at the genre in which I write and what drew me to it.
