Fun While Writing
I’m often asked why I write, or read even, and my answer has always been, “Because it’s fun.” It’s work, but what I choose to write has always felt like a fun break for me, even when I’m pages and pages of research into something I barely know about. That said, one of the most fun things I’ve had to do for a book was to meet actual rugby players (male and female), and watch them at training. I barely knew what to do with myself while I was there, but being able to stand there and experience the noise, the dirt, the routine of it, and ask the coach and players questions…it was hours of being out of my comfort zone but ultimately helped my confidence when writing the fictional part of it. But wait…maybe composing the fictional parts was actually more fun, because by then I had so much inspiration!
Thank you Mina! You’re such an inspiration! 🙂
