What do you write?
Adam - I write sparse description and sarcastic dialogue, usually in the form of either a fantasy or humour novel. Ooh, and silly blog and Twitter posts!
How long have you been writing?
Adam - I think it's been about 2 and a half years. Maybe 3. I did have it written down somewhere, but gawd knows where it went. ;)
What got you started?
Adam - An idea. I was lying in bed one night and an idea for a scene popped into my head. Up until that point, writing a book was just one of those, "One day" things. The next day I started writing, and I haven't looked back since.
A Few important lessons you have learned along the way
(1) While you don't need qualifications to write, a good book on the subject helps you avoid many of the mistakes new writers make.
(2) Ergonomics! You'll likely be spending a lot of time typing, so make sure you're in a comfortable position, or deal with the consequences. Trust me on this. *Stretches back, winces.*
(3) Despite what your mum/dad/friend thinks, you DO need to edit once you're finished. More than once. ;-)
What priority writing is in your life at the moment?
Adam - The order is: Family, writing, reading, being a nut, everything else.
Is it a hobby, career, potential career?
Adam - It's a mix of the last two. I'll need a few more books out before it becomes a real "career," but that's the ultimate goal.
Can you see yourself writing for the rest of your life, regardless of financial / popular success?
Adam - As long as I have fingers, I'll write. That said, I could probably type with my toes, and speech recognition software is pretty good these days...
I write for enoyment, as well as the possibility of a career, so yes, I'll write no matter what. :)
Anything else you may want to add:
Adam - No llamas were fired out of cannons in the making of this interview.
Except that one.
