Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Heath Brougher. Here is our twist on an interview.
- A quote that inspires you:
“Insist on yourself; never imitate” –Ralph Waldo Emerson.
- Your writing process described as a song:
I write very asymmetrically, so I’ve always likened it to the sound of guitar feedback.
- You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:
I write because I have to. I’ve been writing my entire life. It’s cathartic. If I let all those thoughts and ideas just swirl around in my head forever I’d probably end up losing my head. Also I attended a very snobby middle/high school and since I didn’t conform and play the popularity game like all the rest of the lemmings I was subjected to a lot of ridicule and humiliation. I KNOW that writing was an absolute necessity for me during those hellish 6 years.
- What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?
Funny you should ask. Just a week ago I had my first chapbook A Curmudgeon Is Born published by Yellow Chair Press. There is a review of it on my Facebook page and I have an interview coming out very soon that I will also post on my Facebook page. I’d like to thank the super-talented Adam Levon Brown, for writing the review.
