How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Writing in this genre is different from others in that I needed to try and enter a young bird’s mind and be with him as he learned about life.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Simply write, without waiting for ‘inspiration’ to strike! Develop a small idea, letting it grow in its own time, and then write a synopsis of it – excitedly, as if this is an actual happening that you’re telling to your best friend. Create ‘potted biographies’ of each main character, until you know them through and through, before starting on your first draft. At this stage, I aim for 1,000 words a day – and then I write several further drafts until the novel ‘lives’.
P.G. Glynn lives in the quirky ancient town of Totnes, close to glorious Dartmoor and not far from the sea at Torbay and Dartmouth. She is inspired, (and tries not to be daunted!) on her morning walks beside the Dart, by the knowledge that Agatha Christie could see this same river from her holiday home – Greenways – and that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is said to have set The Hound Of The Baskervilles on Dartmoor.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was greatly inspired by a charismatic man named Dusty Greene, who died prematurely. Subsequently, I saw an unusual baby bird who for some reason reminded me of Dusty. I suppose my book was written in memory of the man and in awe of the determined bird!
