3Q’s – Wayne Fenlon has got you covered!

Untitled

Heyyyyyyyyyyyooooooooo!

Welcome back friends! Today’s is an exciting one for me! Many of you will know Wayne Fenlon from his phenomenal support of soooo many writers!

Some may know him from his book cover animations or even his book covers! And now, some of you may know him from his own writing! Welcome, Wayne!

Steve: What does your writing time look like? Do you try and write at the same time each day? Do you have a word count you attempt to hit?

Wayne: I am lucky enough to be able to write during working hours. It’s the perks of being a security guard in an office building. But I don’t just use the time to write, I’ll read, design book covers, and play around with animations. Whatever mood I’m in. Just happy creating.
As for word counts or hours I put into writing, it can be anything from an hour a day to six or seven hours. Word counts can be literally anything. I might just spend a day rewriting something and throwing words away. It’s really only recently that I’ve caught the writing bug again, and I’ve got a lot of friends to thank for that. With the Scares That Care Authorcon 2 coming next March, I plan on having a few things out: a collection and a novella at least. Good people are pushing me to get things done. Really excited about that. Having a lot of fun with it at the moment, too.

Steve: Out of all your releases, do you have a character you could write about forever?

Wayne: I don’t have a character I could write about forever, and to be honest, I don’t know if I’d want to. I don’t mind trilogies, but when it gets to fifteen or more books in a series, it puts me off.

Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!

Wayne: As for the moment, I have two pieces coming up in SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED: AN ANTHOLOGY OF HORROR released on June 10th: a drabble called LOOPS , and a short piece around 2.5k words called WHISPERS IN THE DUST.

I can’t really say anything about LOOPS because it’s only 100 words, but WHISPERS is about coping: an alcoholic father, a mother hoping for change, and a son lying in bed at night going through his thoughts. Can’t really say much more than that, but I’m super proud of how it turned out. It’s my longest piece of work in print.

(Side note – I do have a story in this anthology as well. I’ve been trying to prevent any sort of self promotional aspects of these 3Q’s, but I decided to share the link to this here as I still want folks to discover Wayne’s work!)

Steve: Bonus Question! Did you have a favorite wrestler as a kid?

Wayne: I’ve never been into wrestling to be honest. It was nothing like it is today. Growing up in the UK we had Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks, and it was televised on a Saturday afternoon. You could hardly call them athletes. Have a look online. It’s so bad.

Second UK writer to mention these two giants!

Awesome, thank you so much, Wayne!
