A DOZEN QUESTIONS
Featuring 12 Writers chosen by me. If you don't get an invitation this time, DM me @JoeCushnan to be considered for the next run.
The Pivot Questionnaire comprises 10 questions. I have seen it used on the television show Inside the Actor's Studio, presented by James Lipton. Apparently, Proust was the original inspiration. The modern questions originated on a French TV show called Bouillon de Culture, hosted by Bernard Pivot. I have expanded the questions to 12, plus a chance to share words of encouragement on writers and writing.
In a kind of ‘Season 1’, I interviewed creative artists from Northern Ireland. You can look them up on my blog https://droppedthemoon.blogspot.com
(Search Dozen Questions)
In ‘Season 2’, I focused on writers: Damien Donnelly, Robin McNamara, Roger Hare, Margaret Royall, Matthew M. C. Smith, Devon Marsh, Peach Delphine, Gaynor Kane, Isabelle Kenyon, Zoe Siobhan Howarth-Lowe, Byddi Lee – and I snuck in as a substitute when someone was unable to respond.
This time I am interested in helping to promote more writers from anywhere and, from my knowledge of great writers on social media, this is an invitation-only opportunity (for the moment) to promote great work.
If you would like to accept the invitation to participate and to promote yourself and your work with images, links, sample writing, anything you want to say, please let me know. If not, no problem. Your answers can be any length.
What’s in it for me? Traffic to my blog. That’s it.
3 THINGS: I do not edit. 2. I intend to share your words, links and images on Twitter. 3. You can use the material freely for your own purposes on your own sites and across other social media platforms.
