In recognition of our members’ achievements, we’ve put together some of the awards and publications they stacked up in 2018!
‘I want story and forward momentum. For me, this is what crime delivers’
‘Write from the heart – write what scares you, what interests you; write out your most embarrassing thoughts. This is the stuff of common humanity.’
‘Language has always been the tool I choose to work with … I think that there is no end to what we can do with language and no end to what we can learn about it, and from it.’
‘I want the reader to become immersed in my characters’ worlds and have a sensory as well as a literary experience.’
‘Write daily, read widely in all genres and don’t think too much about the fashion. Don’t expect to get rich, and don’t go about comparing your work or your progress to others.’
‘Rather than being motivated by imagined commercial success, be driven by the joy of telling stories which give pleasure to readers.’
‘Write what excites you. Forget trends or “what’s hot”. Writing what you love will motivate you to finish it.’
