6th Day of Blog Tour Welcoming Emma Latham.

Hello, today I have the pleasure of welcoming the lovely Emma Latham on the blog tour.


What is/are your motivation/(s) for writing?

My mind is always crammed with ideas. My motivation for writing is to get them from mind to paper in a way that makes sense to me, therefore leaving more space for even more ideas. I write for me, I never write with the intention of it being published nor even being read by another. Maybe one day I will finish a piece that I will completely be satisfied with but until then my skill is for me and for me alone.

What genre do you enjoy writing?

I enjoy writing most genres. I do prefer to mix my genres though. For instance right now I am writing a true life story with magic injected to keep the story together. I always start the story a particular genre, but you never know where the idea is going to lead you… or where it will end.

Are there any more books in the pipeline?

When it comes to writing I am brilliant at starting my ideas, but finishing them is another question. I have though been focused and rather excited about the book mentioned in the previous question. I have been working also on a children’s poetry book with a friend and a fifty poem combined puzzle book with my son. The past year I have not been writing as much as I want to or as much as I should. We shall see what 2018 brings.

How do you intend to spend Christmas?

I am spending Christmas with my beautiful soon to be a teenager Ash and my husband Scott. It is all shush at the moment, but on Christmas Eve Ashton will open a card with directions to get ready to go out. At the end written is the message we are going to Futuroscope ( A theme park in France) for Christmas.

Will there be lots of writing or will it take a back seat to the festive activities?



At the moment, my writing isn’t taking a back seat because of the time of year, but due to my health. I won’t go into details and bore everyone, but it hasn’t been a great year for my physical health. I decided to give myself a break! I feel you don’t do your best creatively if you are in a forced timescale. Every person works differently though. So as I have said previously we shall see.



Thanks very much Emma for your blog tour entry and I wish you all the best with your writing projects.
