Writing has its ups and downs, but it’s a friend. It acts like a friend. It’s a cathartic outlet that blesses the world, as told through the lens of whomever presents it. What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? I can’t say I have any tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block. But I’ve noted that when I am not exactly writing something, I think of so many ideas. I can then apply them later. What is your favorite time to write? I like to write in the evening. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? Write from your own perspective. What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? Writing is what I gain from, not really the timeframe. W.C. Aldridge’s My Soul’s Journey is out August 25 with Amador Publishers.
