3] At what age did you start to write and what was your motivation for doing so?
I was nine years old when I was shown the notebook of an older pupil in my school who wrote poetry. That did it.
4] Does writing/creativity come naturally to you or do you struggle to invent something inspirational each day/week/month?
‘Bout like breathing
5] How prolific are you in your craft?
Writing presently more than one poem a day
6] Are your writings displayed elsewhere or just WordPress? If so where?
In isolated publications worldwide, chapbook out of old North Beach, SF. Nothing still in print. I do also have this web book on homelessness: The New Holocaust: Homelessness in America and What We Can Do About It that’s been out for a couple of years now. I was honoured by extensive reviews by both Rebelle Society and Namaste Publications, and I hope it has managed to do a little good in the thirty six countries in which it’s being read.
7] Do you ever suffer from writers/creators block? How do you combat it?
Not anymore. For those who wish to know more, however, I did a unit on this subject in my artist in residencies, and have developed some techniques with regard to it — write to me about it and I’ll respond.
8] What is your preferred creative expressive form? [Writing/photography/poetry/artistry/illustration/design/musical composition]

9] How do you arrive at your decision to write/create/invent about what you have chosen as a subject for the piece/s?
Can’t help myself

Silence and weed
11] What helps you to create your content? [People/conversation/family/health/magazines/newspapers/controversy/funny moments/life experiences]
Every damn thing
12] Is your content driven by your journey or your story, or by the journeys and stories of others?
It’s all channelled direct.
13] Are there any specific things which enable your creative juices to flow more steadily? [Overtired/insomnia/mental health/eating/drinking/smoking/surrounded by colour/abstract thoughts and thinking]
All of the above
14] How long from start to finish would/can your content take you to complete?
An average Shakespearean sonnet completes itself in five to fifteen minutes

How do you feel when you receive acknowledgement from another?
A great sense of relief that it has succeeded in doing someone some good
Finally, what advice would you award writers or creators looking to express them selves and to then display their works to the world?
Eat, sleep, drink and breathe your passion. All else is secondary
