Mentions / Which short story writers have had the biggest influence on you?

March 2, 2016

Is winning a short story prize a positive experience, and something that will influence your plans for writing in the future? 


Absolutely it’s a positive thing. Starting out writing can often be a lonely, disheartening road to travel. It’s hard to know if what you’re writing is any good, and harder still to know how to improve. Other people might be better at managing this; for me, it has been a deep and painful battle. There’s been a lot of gnawing doubt. I love writing, but it is difficult.
