Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Kate Murdoch. Here is our twist on an interview.
- A quote that inspires you:
“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.” —Buddha
- Your writing process described as a song:
Once I’m in the ‘zone’ it’s fairly steady and methodical. The challenge is remaining in the zone, as I can get distracted. I also give myself breaks in order to allow the subconscious to give me answers.
- You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:
I write in order to gain clarity and order. There are so many concepts, emotions and theories jostling in my head and writing stories is my way of making sense of it all. I also like the idea of connecting with people — that complete strangers might relate to my words, or be moved by them.
- What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?
I had a story called “Neonatal” published in Spelk Fiction in April.
Kate exhibited widely as a painter before turning her hand to writing. In between writing historical fiction, she enjoys writing short stories and flash fiction. Her stories have appeared in Eunoia Review, Flash Fiction Magazine, The Flash Fiction Press, Spelk Fiction, and Sick Lit Magazine.
See you next week with another not-so-typical interview.
