Inky Dumbbell has a new interview up with Paul McVeigh who is a terrific writer. His short fiction has been commissioned by BBC Radio 4 and has appeared in several anthologies. He is the Director of the London Short Story Festival, and Creative Director of Word Factory, the UK’s leading short story literary salon. And he has a novel coming out… so generally whoah.
He talks about how to write emotions that feel real, but overwrought. He talks about the process that works for him. AND he has some super smart things to say about the importance of touch.
P.S. Apologies. My voice is a little bit snuffly as I had a cold. But it is worth it for Paul’s general awesomeness.
