It’s connected me to a huge group of terrific friends/acquaintances who just happen to be writers, reviewers and artists etc. These awesome folk love art, they love to share art and ideas about art. That leads to opportunities I might otherwise not have seen or known about. It’s a community, and for the most part everyone is trying to help everyone else.
Q4. What would you say are the downsides to social media in your career?
Time theft. Connecting with my friends is important, but doing it properly takes time and I, like everyone else, don’t have masses of that to spare. Time spent connecting on social media is time lost when it comes to me getting on with the writing I need to do to get my career off the ground. That can be hard.
Q5. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Teaching. University level. So lecturing basically.
Q6. What profession would you not like to do?
Lots. Most heinous? Sales. *vomits* I tried sales once, loathed it with the passion of a trillion war-mongering psychotics.
Q7. What is your favorite curse word?
That’s like asking me to pick a favourite child. If I had to? Cunt. Short, sweet, and emphatic.
Q8. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
What the fuck are you doing here?
