My Life as a writer
When did you first realise you wanted to write for a living?
I must have been 12 or 14 when I first realised I want to deal with books and writing for my entire life. I knew the chosen path is a bumpy one but I also knew I’m no quitter.
Which writer, past or present, do you most admire?
The unnamed ones. The ones that are still to show what they have. The ones that won’t give up.
What was your first published (or performed) credit as a writer?
Does a school play count?
Which piece of writing work are you most proud of?
The Price of a Crown. My first full-length novel, only one published so far as well. It’s the first of a trilogy and it started out as 16 hand-written pages.
Who or what inspires you to write?
Everything. Everywhere I go I can find a story to entertain myself. People around me, music, places. Even something as tiny and unnoticeable as a pebble.
How do you switch off when you’re not writing?
Which one piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Why are you a member of WGGB?
The writer’s life can be a lonely one. I need to know there are others.
Vyara Daudova’s first novel is called The Price of a Crown.
