Tracey’s delighted to be chatting to Writer Of The Week Greer Glover, who’s making her “Friend” debut with the festive story “Being Crafty”, in this week’s issue.
Welcome Greer, how long have you been writing fiction?
I’ve been writing fiction for about 20 years.
Where did the inspiration for “Being Crafty” come from?
Every year, a friend and I spend a whole evening making our Christmas wreaths and chatting about everything that’s going on in our lives. We always end up concluding we have too much on our plate!
Who are your some of your favourite authors?
What made you submit a story to the “Friend”?
Last Christmas, I was recovering from a skin cancer operation and I thought, ‘This is it, it’s now or never to send off a story.’
Having cancer became a really positive experience because it gave me the confidence I needed to face the fear of rejection.
Luckily, it all worked out okay!
What are your writing ambitions?
I’m writing a novel based on a family drama and my aim is to finish it in 2022.
What are your own Christmas plans?
What advice would you give to someone looking for writing success in the “Friend”?
