Writing is important for enlightening, entertaining, and encouraging others. Writing is the most comprehensive medium to communicate with the world. What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? Taking a walk, a hot bath, or day dreaming. What is your favorite time to write? I love to write in the early morning before everyone wakes up. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? Writers write. If you say you are writer and never put words on the page, you are only wishing you had written. What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? The opportunities are astounding! From self-publishing, hybrid publishing, traditional publishing, blogging, and freelancing, the wealth of avenues to get your message out has increased. Angela Lam’s The Heroic Adventures of Madame X, written under her pen name A. R. Gross, is out May 20 with Atmosphere Press.
