WriteWords talks to Rae Earl, author of My Fat Mad Teenage Diary and WriteWords member Cabbagesahoy

Where and when did you start to write?

I think it was on my window sill when I was 7. It was about the two rival kebab vans in my street.I wrote a brilliant first line then stopped. This still happens.



What do you love about writing?

Freedom.


Do you write in any other forms?

I write poetry badly and often

What are your other passions?

Horses (though I don't have one) Train stations and train travel in general. Put me on the East Coast mainline in a decent seat and that is heaven. Peterborough to Edinburgh - glorious.



What distracts you from your writing?

All of the above. You Tube. Facebook, Twitter. Skype. My mum's gossip from Morrisons.

I agree about that railway journey, Rae. Melons - hmm - I think the honeydew ones are nice but I agree water melons are overrated. I guess the clue is in the name. Really enjoyed MFTD. Looking forward to a second series!
