I am a far better writer than I am a speaker. For me, writing is how I best explore and communicate ideas. It’s so versatile as an art form, and I love that the same words can be interpreted differently depending on the person. What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? My best remedy is to stop writing and consume a different story, whether it’s reading a book or watching a movie. I get inspired again when I’m in someone else’s creation. It motivates me to keep grinding through my own project. What is your favorite time to write? My best writing sessions are early in the morning, when the world is dark and quiet. Unfortunately, I like to sleep late, so those early morning sessions are few and far between. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? The classic Nike slogan: “Yesterday you said tomorrow.” What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? I like how books are more accessible than ever for readers out there. You can find your people, no matter how niche your writing is. Catherine Dang’s Nice Girls is out now with William Morrow.
