Featured Writer in the NL
In August 2011, an interview with Big Fat Writer was featured in Expatica.com, a news and information website for the international community. The interview was published in Expat Voices and explains how I ended up in the Netherlands, what I write about, how living abroad has influenced my writing, and more.
They had lots of questions. Here are two from the light, low calorie, diet version.
What do you like most about writing?
I am creative, sarcastic, funny, dynamic, daring and full of personality. When writing for financial organizations during the financial crisis, much of my writing personality was stripped away and we had to write about just the facts. I would like to be paid to be hilarious, write funny and be more creative. Right now, not being funny is paying the bills.
How has living abroad influenced your work as a writer?
Being in the Netherlands is better for my English writing, copywriting, editing business. Not so many people can write well in English. In this country my skills are special and needed. Being a native English speaker in the US or UK is more competitive, and my English skills are less special.
