    What sort of Writing do you do?

    Mostly the invisible type, but poems and short pieces of prose reveal themselves on occasion. I like to write essays when time permits (which is never).

    What genre do you like to write?

    Non-fiction, or contemporary literary quasi-fiction.

    Ever been Published or won any Competitions?

    This would involve actually submitting something to somewhere.

    How long have you been Writing?

    On and off since primary school.

    What are your writing habits?

    Not writing most of the time, then writing in random bursts.

    Who reads your work?

    Very few people.

    Why do you write?

    It’s a good way to sort out impressions, thoughts, experiences, etc.

    And finally, where can we read your work?

    Here.

    What sort of Writing do you do?
    I write patch work quilts that I most often forget to actually sew together.

    What genre do you like to write?
    Any, tbh. I mostly like writing characters. Genres that allow interesting ways to torment aforementioned characters are generally preferred, however.

    Ever been Published or won any Competitions?
    LOL

    How long have you been Writing?

    Since I was five. Since I am also, currently, five, make of that what you will.

    What are your writing habits?
    Poor. Chronology is a lie. Spelling is an illusion. Endings, avoided. Hydration is good, though. One must consume a lot of tea during the process, after all.

    Who reads your work?

    Darga Fleas did once, the fool.

    Why do you write?
    Because then I have an excuse for the maladaptive daydreaming.

    And finally, where can we read your work?
    On this here screen thing you’re looking at.

    What sort of Writing do you do?
    In a word it could be described as Vogon. Smashed out, edited again and again, sat on for months (giving me enough time to forget about it), eventually remembered, edited a few more times, buried in a documents folder and eventually recycled in a future story. I have stuff I wrote almost 20 years ago that I still occasionally refer back to.

    What genre do you like to write?
    Sci-fi that’s masquerading as Fantasy. I like characters, so I spend my time making them as real as I can in my head, and then they drive the story.
    Or fanfic. Fanfic is fun. The rules of the world are established and I can just play/focus on character development (more often than not, ‘fixing’ underdeveloped or mis-developed characters in canon…you know what I mean).

    Ever been Published or won any Competitions?
    I have vague memories of winning a book voucher for a story I wrote when I was 12 about dolphins? Haha, absolutely not, winning would require submitting words, as JP said.

    How long have you been Writing?
    In ‘secret’ since I was about 10, when I started writing fanfiction before I knew it was a thing that many other people did (and before the internet was invented). No I will not tell you what fandom it was for.

    What are your writing habits?
    Generally moaning about the fact that I’d rather be writing than [insert life task here]. I try to give myself an hour a day, but most times it doesn’t pan out.

    Who reads your work?
    I greedily hoard it for myself.

    Why do you write?
    Because there are stories that I want to read and I’m incredibly impatient.

    And finally, where can we read your work?
    Did I not mention the hoarding? I’m not sure I have the confidence to share it tbh. At the current, it’s something I do for me.

    What sort of Writing do you do?
    I use to do a lot of online community writing back in high school. Someone starts a thread and begins a story and other continue with their own flavour. While I don’t write much now, when I do it’s mostly world building with a google drive filled with incomplete stories that I don’t have the courage to work on or give for comment.

    What genre do you like to write?
    SciFi

    Ever been Published or won any Competitions?
    I remember doing so in primary or high school, nothing came of it though

    How long have you been Writing?
    On and of for about 20 years

    What are your writing habits?
    Procrastination, Procrastination, Procrastination

    Who reads your work?
    Myself, for the most part. I do have a few reworked community stories on my deviantArt

    Why do you write?
    Currently looking to get back into writing and looking to see if the community that started that inspiration all so long ago can allow me to face my fears
