31 Days of Author Madness: Owain Glyn

The Fiver:

1. What is your writing process?

I tend to get the germ of an idea. I handwrite my thoughts and put it to one side for a few days. I then reread, if it continues to make sense I will develop it. I do not put it onto publish until I am completely satisfied. I throw away more than I publish.

2. What inspires you to write?

The world around me. I am an inveterate people watcher and I can find an element of humour in even the most tragic of situations.

3. Writing is considered a dream job by many, but what if you were granted the opportunity for a true, magical ‘dream job’. What would it be and why?

I think I would be an undertaker. I am extremely nosey and would take delight in what I found in people’s pockets.

4. You are standing on a stage, addressing a high school auditorium of teenage creative writers. What advice would you impart to them about the craft and the career path of being a writer?

I would suggest to them that if they were considering writing as a career then I could hand out a list of cheap psychiatrists.

5. You’re stranded in a snowed in cabin, well stocked up on food, but no internet. What is on your emergency book shelf?

Probably lots of alcohol, a copy of Dante’s Divine Comedy, a copy of Dostoevsky’s The Idiot and a copy of How to overcome enthusiasm.

Where to find him:

Any other news or updates you would like to share?

My published first collection of poetry ‘Windswept’ is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or direct from OuterBanks publishing
