Spotlight On Writers
- Where, do you hail from?
- What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
My small city has caring neighbors and a community that sticks together. I love the events that are held for everyone during the holidays, little league baseball, we have a fun fourth of July parade, and- most importantly- Super Bowl Sunday. There’s a strong sense of family through the good and bad. We all genuinely care for each other.
- What turns you on creatively?
It’s been my dream to bring to life stories that will inspire as well as take people on fun and profound adventures. That’s what happened to me when I was a child; reading books and watching films of animation and Classic Hollywood. Now, as an adult on the creative/storytelling path, I want to do the same for others.
- What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?
Ever since I was a child, my favorite word has been Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. It’s just a fun word. Need I say more?
The fun of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious doesn’t have to be just for children, but for those who are children at heart as well.
- What is your pet peeve?
The misusing of you’re, your, then, than, passed, past, there, their, and they’re. I know it’s a lot and very common to make these mistakes, but it drives me crazy. I always flinch whenever I see someone use them incorrectly. That’s just the writer in me.
- What defines Tay Summerlin?
In the midst of working on my next great idea, I make an effort to spend time with family and friends. I also try to help my fellow creatives with whatever help they need concerning their projects. My hope is that those who come across my work will love it which will motivate me to keep going.
