This morning I did a radio interview with ABC South West (WA) Breakfast host Niomi O’Hara.
Who would have thought I would being doing interviews on radio? I’ve always been rather shy and back at school (way back!) used to cringe in my desk seat if the teacher so much as looked in my direction.
I’ve done quite a few now on various radio stations and it does get easier each time…the interviewers have always been lovely and, hopefully, that little tremor in my voice isn’t too obvious!
Niomi kindly gave me a heads up on the questions she would be asking, very handy as one’s mind can go incredibly blank even when talking about something one knows very well 🙂
Lets hope lots of budding writers heard the talk and are inspired to have-a-go and send in some of their work.
I’m just glad they can’t see this editor . . . baggy pink pyjamas, hair frizzing and desperately in need of a cut 😦
My six minutes of fame are over . . . time for a shower and some industrial strength hair product to control the frizz . . . while I wait for LOTS of new submissions to drop int my mail box 🙂
If I can combat my nerves, I’m sure there are many others who can take that first step and bravely send in that special story or poem . . . why not have a go? 🙂
