Writing makes me happy. Most of what I write is humorous. I love spinning tales and creating worlds that begin by existing only in my head. Once the stories are finished, polished, and published, I can share them with readers and, hopefully, make them happy too. What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? I work on several projects, so if I hit a wall while writing one work, I can switch to working on another. This way, I can get the most out of my writing schedule. What is your favorite time to write? I’ve always been a morning person, so that is the best time for me to write. Sometimes, I get a second wind in the afternoon and can get in a couple more hours. However, if I have a deadline, I stick with the project until I’m finished. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? The best piece of writing advice I ever received was to finish my book. So often wannabe writers never begin writing or get caught up in who will read their work and publish it. That thought can be overwhelming. So, just write your book, then work on polishing it. If you never write, you have nothing to polish. What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? Getting to connect with people from all over the globe through the internet. I started writing before social media came into existence. My writing world seemed so small back then. Now, I can connect with readers and writers without leaving the house. Kathleen Kaska’s Eagle Crossing is out now with Wild Rose Press.
