Re: Do you try to remove yourself from your writing?

Hello. I do try to remove myself from my characters most of the time. I think writing can be mentally draining at times. If you invest too much of yourself, it might turn the reader off, or it might become an autobiographical exercise rather than a work of fiction. I think its best to keep a distanc...

Re: How many books have you got on your book shelf?

I'm really terrible. I can't throw books away. Even after I read them, they sit aimlessly on the shelf, doing nothing, going nowhere LOL. I cannot bring myself to throw them away, although I rarely read a book more than once. :)

Re: How many books have you got on your book shelf?

I really have no idea. I used to have a large collection but, unfortunately, some of them were lost. I've counted about 25 on my bookshelf and I know there are a further 25 or more located around my room in different storage boxes. There are also some books in my loft and in other storage facilities...

Re: What matters most to you when reading a good book?

Short chapters tend to be the modern way of novel writing. When I was growing up, most authors wrote long chapters. This is probably where I get the habit from. My chapters in the novels I write are always too long. I'm going to try and write shorter chapters, but I don't think I'll be able to manag...

Re: What are some novels that depict loneliness, social isolation and alienation in the main character?

I try not to read anything too sad and depressing but when someone mentioned Cormac McCarthy I remembered 'The Road'. Although the father is with his son, it is about two people facing up to a new, frightening world alone. It's a fantastic book with a heartbreaking ending.
