Writer Spotlight: Randall C
Meet writer Randall C from Mt. Morris, IL!
Q. If you had a catchphrase, what would it be?
A. I’ve always always had creative ambitions in life. I’ve lived by the phrase “As children we believe that anything is possible. As adults it is our job to remember.”
Q. What is your day job super power?
A. I’m just about the best at giving my cat headrubs while writing about baseball. In fact, the best in the world.
Q. Best advice you’ve ever received?
A. There is no such thing as perfect timing. You can’t live your life waiting for the best moment to take the leap.
Q. Favorite hat?
A. When I was little my dad gave me a New York Yankees baseball cap before he got deployed. I don’t even like baseball that much but I wore that thing ragged.
Q. If there was a movie based on your life, what actor/actress would play you?
A. Aaron Paul. We both have an indescribable love of pizza and Bryan Cranston.
Q. What would the title of the movie be?
A. “How’d I get into this” – It’d be a docu-drama on how I bribed him to star in a film about me. Really meta stuff.
Q. Favorite thing about WA?
A. The entire website, really. From my fellow authors chatting on the boards all the way to you guys looking out for us. Of course, the clients are pretty awesome as well.
Q. Favorite writer, dead or alive?
A. Michael Crichton got me into reading for pleasure and then Robin Hobb kept me there.
Q. What’s your guilty pleasure?
A. Cheesecake. Bad day? Buy some cheesecake. Did it rain? Get some cheesecake. Cat won’t stop meowing? Cheesecake.
Q. Favorite breakfast food?
A. Bacon. There’s nothing like the smell of sizzling bacon in the morning.
Q. Little known fact about you?
A. I’m an aspiring actor. I like to keep that relatively close to the vest, though. When I do bring it up I always get asked “Are you famous” and, well, no of course not.
Q. What can’t you live without?
A. The internet. I make my living because of this wonderful invention. I’m free of bosses, punch cards, and commutes. If I had to go back–I don’t know what I’d do.
Q. What advice would you like to leave off with for your fellow writers?
A. There’s no such thing as down time. When there aren’t articles to write then study on how you can become a better writer. Brand yourself. Take pride in your work.
