This week, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Pauline Wiles, a MultiTalented Writer who takes joy in writing both fiction and non-fiction. She entertains readers while encouraging writers to pursue their passion. Read on for more!
1. What is your name and where are you located?
Pauline Wiles; near San Francisco, California
2. What is the name of your blog(s)? What subjects does it cover?
3. Why do you choose to write in multiple niches?
My first three books were romantic comedies set in a fictional village in my native England. I wrote two of these novels alongside a day job, and eventually realized I was feeling increasingly overwhelmed. Glee had turned to grind, and creating was a chore. Instead of throwing in the towel, I brewed an extra strong cup of tea and embarked on an entire year of experiments with my mindset, techniques, and habits. I’m still a work in progress, but I’m now convinced that pragmatic self-care and purposeful productivity are the foundations of a long and happy writing career. And I’m on a mission to help other writers benefit from what I’ve learned!
4. Do you blog and write as a hobby, as a part-time job, or do you do it for full-time income?
It’s a part-time job at present.
5. Do you blog on your own platform, for companies, for publications, or for a mixture of these?
Aside from guest posts, I blog on my own platform only.
6. Where can we read some of your writing?
You can see my author page here.
7. Why do you believe multi-niche writing is beneficial?
I love writing fiction that entertains women (and myself), and provides some light escapism from daily life. However, I’m also thrilled to have the chance to offer tips and cheerleading to other writers who might be stressed or overwhelmed by the different tasks they have to juggle. There is such pleasure to be found in a writing career; I hope to inspire others to keep going and not give up.
8. Is there anything you would like to add?
