Interview #9 with Horror Writer Trevor Hallam

Blog Host Morgen Bailey interviews author Trevor Hallam

Please follow the above link to Morgen Bailey's blog interview with author Trevor Hallam

Here is an excerpt of the interview:

MB: A year for a book sounds pretty good to me. What is your opinion of writer’s block? Do you ever suffer from it? If so, how do you ‘cure’ it?

TH: Writer’s block is tricky. I never lack ideas. I often lack the motivation to write those ideas down. If that is a form of writer’s block, then yes, I suffer from it. Not always. It can depend on a lot of things. If there’s personal turmoil, stress. A lot of times, I’m just lazy and would rather watch a movie or play a video game. I’m still working on that discipline thing. So sometimes I have to work a little harder to motivate myself. My ‘cure’ isn’t much of a cure. If the idea resonates strongly with me, I will force myself to write, even if it comes out as crap, which it often does on the first pass. That’s the glory of the rewrite, which is so much easier.

MB: And always easier to do to a ‘crap’ page than a blank one. Do you plot your stories or do you just get an idea and run with it?

TH: I collect ideas and when I have a bunch of ideas, I work out ways to combine them and build on them. I’ve attempted to simply write with a single notion. Sometimes, a decent short story comes out of it, but usually it results in an underdeveloped piece of crap. I prefer to take time developing a story, especially for the undertaking of a novel.

MB: Do you have pieces of work that you think will never see light of day?

TH: Absolutely! A part of me likes to think that I’ll go back to those old stories I started or outlined and pick up where I left off, or rewrite it from scratch, but the other side knows that there was a reason I never did anything with those ideas.
