Q: How has your writing evolved over time?
A: I’m working on being more judicious with my writing. I have a tendency to over-explain my characters and their motivations, so I’m learning to trust my readers more by paring some of that back. Similarly, while my stories vary in genre and style, I’m beginning to home in on subjects that matter to me personally, so I think a kind of consistency is slowly forming in a small body of work. But, like many folks, I am still very much a work in progress, so I have a lot yet to figure out.
