Mable Barbara Amuron is a multi-talented award winning creative with a passion for the written word. She is a writer, editor, poet and, most importantly, a reader.
‘’I enjoy watching words become something coherent and something that can entertain, inform, and inspire. My poetry has appeared in two anthologies in Zimbabwe and South Africa. A script I wrote and voiced won Best Animation at the 2018 Uganda Film Festival Awards.’’
She believes she is a reader first. And that's what has influenced her writing the most. Her dissatisfaction with the ending of some books she read forced her to start rewriting the endings in a way, she felt, the characters deserved.
‘’I'm also influenced by what I see. I'm observant. I am the girl in the corner at a party that's just watching everyone and creating stories about them. ‘’
Her special writing software happens to be Google Docs. ‘’ I just love it. I enjoy that I can share a document with people and that I can edit it on the go. With my phone or laptop.’’
Do you feel like it’s most important to have: A) Strong Characters?
B) Mind-blowing Plot twists or
C) Epic settings?
I most enjoy stories that are character-driven as opposed to plot-driven because I am intrigued by the human condition. Stories that help me understand humans more are stories that are my favorite. I enjoy the unreliable narrator the most.
Do you have any writing blogs you recommend?
Yes! Actually. These are two that I enjoy the most.
