My friend Kelly who lives in Chicago has taken a block of time off from her regular job to focus on writing and publishing a novel. I am so excited for her! It was something I always dreamed of doing when I was younger but I’ve waited till now to actually get serious about writing fiction. Kelly has started a blog to chronicle the experience of writing her novel. One section of that blog is called Writers Quick Five and in it Kelly asks writers five questions about their writing experience. I was so pleased that Kelly invited me to answer her quick five questions about writing and featured me on her blog. You can read what Kelly wrote about me here. It is often good to stop and reflect on what is important when you are a writer and Kelly’s questions helped me do that, so I am grateful to her.
I got to know Kelly in Hong Kong when we were both working at the same school.
Five years ago we went to visit Kelly and her family in Chicago. We hope they will make a visit to Winnipeg someday.
