Siobhan Minty, an emerging author, wife, and mother of two young children told me she is ready to accept dares and, on occasion, has even donned a fake accent and accosted strangers on the street. All because of a dare. That surprised me because she is quiet and demure on first glance. Not at all the daring sort of person. Yet she dares to be a writer, so I should not have been surprised.
I met Siobhan during a September writing retreat in a lovely cottage near Ottawa, Ontario, and was intrigued by her commitment to her craft. Graciously she agreed to be interviewed and the resulting video is now available. Pay particular attention to her comments on good writing, on her critique group’s support, and on her newly published e-book, A Gay in the Life of Melinda Finch.
Have you ever done a dare you wished you hadn’t? Is e-publishing a good way to start a writing career? Kindly leave a comment here with your thoughts. (Not on You-Tube as there is so much spam there. Thanks.)
