R A Williams

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It's more of a need. To avoid migraines, I have to burn off creative energy by composing music, writing, or doing something that involves taking something abstract and making it concrete. If I don't do it, I end up with a pretty miserable experience. When it comes to things I publish, I make sure to only select things are worth sharing. By that I mean ideas or perspectives that haven't yet been introduced.
What do your fans mean to you?
Many of them are people who have known me for a long time and are dear friends. But when something I write provides a useful insight to another human being, I feel as though we are connected through that idea. Being connected to other people is a near-universal human need, and kinship through ideas can be a very satisfying way of having it: the connection transcends time, space, and other types of community.
