Earlier today Elviza tagged some heavy-duty writers and bloggers. Somehow, despite being just a hopeful writer wannabe, I made my way into that list (yay!). And being a sucker for any worthwhile tag, I excitedly complied. So here it is:
Q1 Where are you?
I am on my balcony, at my writing table. To my right is the breathtaking vista of a construction site in progress. And five storeys below, I hear the muted sound of several fights breaking out between the Indon and the Bangla construction workers
Q2 What are you writing with?
My beloved Lamy 2000 fountain pen, the one with the medium oblique nib, loaded with Diamine Blue-Black ink. This writing combo is perhaps the next best thing there is to a full-blown orgasm.
Q3 What is the oddest object in front of you?
A postcard with a picture of ‘The Shrek’ Sometimes people mistake that postcard for a photograph of me.
Q4 What are you listening to?
Sirens as the police arrive to break-up the fights between the Indons and the Banglas
Q5 Is there anyone else in the room?
Nobody else here; just me and my muse…
Q6 What time of the day is it?
It’s about 2:00 am, and as usual, I have run out of Winstons. Almost all the good (?) stuff gets written between midnight and 3:00 am
Q7 What do you look at when you are looking for inspiration?
I go to my muse’s WordPress site, linger on her ‘About’ page for a while (sometimes a very long while) and by some magic, I get inspired to my very core.
Q8 What is guaranteed to remove your concentration?
When my muse is in her ‘faraway’ mode.
