Meet writer Sharon W. from Wareham, MA!
Q. If you had a catchphrase, what would it be?
A. Keep smiling.
Q. What is your day job super power?
A. Understanding technology without being an actual technologist. It helps me to explain the benefits without getting caught up in how cool the technology is.
Q. Best advice you’ve ever received?
A. Do what makes you happy and the rest will fall into place.
Q. If there was a movie based on your life, what actor/actress would play you?
A. Kyra Sedgewick
Q. What would the title of the movie be?
A. The Lucky One
Q. Favorite thing about WA?
A. I always have the opportunity to learn something new because of the wide variety of topics, and I love the super-nice and ultra-responsive support staff. I also learn a lot by lurking in the writer forums. The talent here is amazing.
Q. Favorite writer, dead or alive?
A. Thomas Hardy
Q. What’s your guilty pleasure?
A. Ice cream, Godiva chocolates and a fashion magazine
Q. Favorite breakfast food?
A. Belgian waffle with strawberries and whipped cream
Q. Little known fact about you?
A. I learned to scuba dive because I was afraid of the ocean. Seeing what goes on underwater cured my fear.
Q. What can’t you live without?
A. Rare roast beef and my two wire-haired miniature dachshunds
Q. What advice would you like to leave off with for your fellow writers?
A. Don’t give up and don’t get discouraged. I started as a level 2 writer and I stayed at level 2 for months. I was frustrated and ready to give up on WA when suddenly I connected with a customer who gave me several solos and rated them all exceeds. After that, I moved up very quickly, and you can too. Just keep plugging and work on improving your skills.
