Where are you from?
Guyana, South America. The little country I call home is an enigmatic beauty I tell you, but I definitely have plans of migrating in order to broaden my experiences. I will never leave my country at heart though and when I have achieved a fair level of success, I will return and share my knowledge with other budding writers in order to help them fulfill their dreams.
What are you doing with your life?
I have a BA in English from the University of London and am currently putting my talents to good use as the editor and contributor to a local newspaper called the Guyana Chronicle. I’m halfway through completing the first draft of my novel ‘Leech’ ( four years in the making) and also work part-time providing Public Relations under the label JAM PR Services.
I want to do more writing, and I certainly want to become more a part of the local arts industry and am always looking for ways in which I can do that. Soon I will also embark on completing my Master’s in Creative Writing (wish me luck) and hope that at the end of it all I can look back and truly say that I have earned the title of ‘writer’.
How do you make time for all the stuff you do?
Well quite frankly, I don’t think I do enough. Between a full-time job, freelance writing, editing and looking for the next best creative activity I can be involved in, I find that I still have large amounts of free time. What I need to do however, is prioritorise myself so that I can get as much writing in as possible, as I feel that I do not do as much writing as I wish I could.
