Sean’s Shorts

writers with tattoosSean’s Shorts – Sean Williams gives us some short, yet insightful, answers to a short Q&A about writing and reading. Sean will be a guest at our upcoming Children’s and YA Creators Festival, which is a festival not to be missed!

Favourite writing tip:

Write what you love: dive right in and don’t stop until it’s done. (Then fix it.)

Who/what you’re currently reading:

I’m reading a lot of YA speculative fiction at the moment to get me in the mood for what I’m writing.

Favourite character that you’ve written and why:

Clair from the Twinmaker series: she’s smart, stubborn, and loyal. Three excellent qualities.

What’s your favourite and least favourite part about your writing process?

Fave: writing. Least fave: waiting for the book to come out.
