A wooden octagon patio table to let my laptop breathe and plenty of space for paper and reference books, food and beverages.
What is your writing process?
I did not initially set out to write an article, but after I began the research on this project and gathered more and more, I realised I was onto something worth pursuing with and that since I was able to clarify some of the aspects of the focus I then went onto wanting to share it publicly. The process was really going by a pattern of researching, taking notes (lots of them), understanding the research, thinking, taking a break of a week or so, then back to it again. I found that the breaks helped to reset the motivation and clear the mind especially as some of the information was new to me. After I had so many notes, I then took to organising them into context and a structured format that I could present in an enjoyable read.
How do you approach cover design?
I used my own photograph, that could be looked upon and understood after reading the publication without having to look inside the book. I had my own copy for a year before I decided upon this approach.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
A literacy story in high school and it ended with a scene that I later noted was similar to the Van Goghs Chair painting.
