Creative Democracy: Put One Word In Front Of The Other

Quiet Radicals

“When people ask I say ‘I just wrote a book about spaceships…”

Thomas Heasman-Hunt might well minimise the achievement of his debut novel “Legacy”. A mere fraction of the 50,000 words he wrote each month over a prolific two years, working by the mantra: “I just put one word in front of the other and see what happens”, Legacy is just a fragment in a universe of imagination

Cutting his teeth online, first in the gaming community before establishing his own original writing and developing a blog to showcase short stories, the novel has been a natural progression for Thomas’s work. But the author isn’t blasé about his “book about spaceships” out of arrogance, rather out of the world in which he moves.

Thomas Heasman-Hunt: No problem. I’m a 31-year-old part-time author (in other words, like most writers, I have a day job…) living in Cambridgeshire in the UK. I’ve been writing, telling stories, playing make-believe and so forth for as long as I can remember, but I started doing it in earnest and trying to make a career out of it perhaps seven or eight years ago.

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

Keep doing it. It took me an embarrassingly long time to realise the connection between the times when I was writing regularly and my general mood. In fact, I still forget sometimes even now… Plus writing is like anything else: you can read all the reference books and blog posts and #writetips you want, but unless you actually sit down andput one word in front of the other, you’ll never achieve anything.

What was an early experience where you…
