Writing is a way for me to articulate and answer questions about myself and others, questions that have great importance to me. What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? I sit down at my desk at the same time every day and write in my journal until I’m ready to work on my book in progress. What is your favorite time to write? Mornings. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? Write for yourself, so if others aren’t interested at the moment, it doesn’t matter. What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? The power of words. Our written words used to go out into the world only on paper, and now they have a much wider reach online. Laurie Lisle’s Word for Word: A Writer’s Life is out tomorrow with Artemis Editions.
