ramsey campbell on writing

Long before I wrote fulltime I learned that prose I’ve forced myself to write doesn’t read so differently from the stuff I produced fluently — the effort is worthwhile. I find it worth remembering that it’s only the first draft, to be improved in the rewriting.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
