Reflections of a working writer and reader

 

 

Five Questions: Katrina Denza

1. Why do you blog?
My main reason for blogging is to promote reading, writing, and
discussion. Sometimes my intention manifests itself as nothing more than plugs for books or stories I loved and sometimes it’s a plug for my own work. Another reason is the connection blogging offers in an otherwise insular profession.

2. Which author and/or book has most influenced you?
I imagine every writer I read influences me in some way, or at the very least teaches me something.

3. Which three blogs do you most visit?
Moorish Girl http://lailalalami.com/blog/;
Myfanwy http://myfanwy.blogspot.com/;
Storyglossia http://www.storyglossia.com/blog/blog.html

4. Why do you read fiction?
To learn and to be moved. With the best books I learn something completely new about myself or others and I’m always grateful for the most evocative literature.

5. What makes you laugh?
Wry humor – I think the British have this down; and I appreciate humor which compells us to laugh at ourselves, but with compassion.
