"I love to write, I enjoy it, if I write something I like I have achieved something, that is my aim. If I write something that’s someone else reads and loves, that gives me purpose..."
Describe a typical writing day...
LB: I write most days, but there are some days when it’s planned and organised, others when I get an idea and have to write it down. After breakfast, and addressing any FB comments, I sit with pen and paper if I’m writing poetry, the laptop if it’s my books, and start to write. Sometimes I will write for hours, I break for lunch, then carry on. Other days I just write for a couple of hours. I try whenever I have some free time to read through what I’ve written make changes and edit. But there are always words and ideas in my head. I love writing anywhere, so I don’t have a particular place where I write, just as long as I’m comfortable, I’m usually surrounded by notebooks, books, paper and pens.
Where do you get your inspiration?
LB: I take inspiration from the things and people around me. One of my ideas came from something I read in the news. O
