Twisted Fictioneer Interview with Kayjai
It’s time for another interview with a member of THE TWISTED FICTIONEERS, a group of authors who collaborate on charity writing projects such as ICONIC INTERVIEWS and F*CKED UP FAIRY TALES. Every Wednesday and Saturday we will feature an interview from a different author who has contributed to our writing ventures.
Whether writing from the perspective of Santa’s Shugga Mama, or penning a clown-choking mime in her twisted version of Sleeping Beauty, this hot Mama from the Great White North proves she can hold her own with the best of them. A ninja with the word fuck, her weapon of choice is a keyboard (and a little wine never hurt, either).
Breakout the corkscrew for our Twisted Fictioneer interview with:
When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
When I discovered I write better than I speak.
Do you prefer to write in a specific genre and if so, why?
Personally, I like humor but when I write fiction, there’s usually a mystery element to it.
What techniques do you use when crafting your writing day to day that keeps you focused on the plot and storyline?
I don’t write everyday, but I try to write an outline before actually starting on any heavy duty writing. I then try to revert back to the outline as I go along.
Many readers will probably be offended by F*cked Up Fairy Tales and/or Iconic Interviews. What is your message behind the irreverence?
I don’t have a message. It’s just all in fun…remember, fun? Yeah,.
What is the most challenging aspect of the mechanics of writing for you, and how do you overcome it?
Getting started is always the toughest part. I try to sip some coffee, read some blogs, watch my dog scratch herself and then stare at the blank screen for a few minutes before doing a gagillion other things. Then I get drunk and write. There. Ma process.
There is art and science involved in writing. What is your favorite aspect of writing in the context of its art?
I have no idea. I write whatever the alcohol brings out in my mind at the time. As for art and science, as long as there is no math involved, I’m all good.
Ten years from now, what are you writing?
My memoirs, or more aptly titled “Kayjai’s Fucked up Fairy Tale”. Yeah.
And now for a little something extra we bring you…
TEN THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT KAYJAI!
1. What would you consider to be your best personality trait?
My kindness and compassion for the woodland animals…and ma sarcasm.
2. What do you think is your worst personality trait?
My sarcasm…especially when it offends innocent bystanders. They should never stand so close to me.

Serious answer: My brother

5. If you could choose a superpower, what would it be and why?
My super power would be the ability to fly…I think. Reading minds would be cool, too. Of course reading minds while flying could be considered ONE superpower, right?
6. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Somewhere more tropical than 50 feet of snow and minus 25.
