Author Interview - Tom Skinner

What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? Plagiarism, podcasts and caffeine!

What contributes to making a writer successful? A massive inheritance and 2,386, 984 twitter followers. If not that, then the patience of a saint and the hide of a rhino.

Do you have any advice for writers? There are as many different ways of writing as there are writers. Tune into your own rhythms . Find what works for you. Rinse and repeat.

If you could leave your readers with one bit of wisdom, what would you want it to be? ‘Be like a reed. If you don’t bend you will break.’ Coming from a notoriously uncompromising Taurean I would take this with a grain of salt!

When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have? I came. I wrote. I conquered (my fears and the amazon algorithm)!

What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why? ‘There are no excuses for success’. Not sure where that one came from. “Tis a funny exercise to insert excuses why one is successful.
