What is the date you began writing this piece of fiction and the date when you completely finished the piece of fiction? I started at my mother’s house in Northern Ireland in May 2015 and completed it May 2016.
What were your writing habits while writing this work- did you drink something as you wrote, listen to music, write in pen and paper, directly on laptop; specific time of day? I worked nine to five from Monday through Friday on my Mac on the novel. In the evenings, after a day of writing, I would enjoy some wine.
Why is this excerpt so emotional for you? And can you describe your own emotional experience of writing this specific excerpt? It’s emotional because the scene with her trainer (who demands she call him ‘Maestro’) strikes at the heart of the book. It depicts perfectly how Kathleen must deal with obstacles and prejudices from allies as well as enemies in order to succeed as a woman in the profession she’s chosen. And it depicts how damaging it is to her confidence and psyche, just as in real life if it happened.
