Meeting Meghan Hill, Author of Making Room for You

This week I’d like to introduce Meghan Hill to the interview room. Meghan is the author of Making Room for You: A Practical Guide to Organizing Your Home. Meghan is a professional organiser often overhauling entire homes and commercial offices. She loves organizing, writing, reading, crossword puzzles, fireside time with loved ones, and sharing ideas.

The Meghan Hill Interview

meghan hillWhat is one thing that no-one would usually know about you?

I am terrified of and repulsed by possums.

What did the best review you ever had say about you and your work?

A reader in Ohio wrote “This is the first book that dealt with the emotional side of clutter with a focus and paying attention to how you feel about your things and your space, and as such is the first book that seems to have really stuck with me.” This is my favorite excerpt because it conveys what I set out to accomplish in writing and publishing my book.

Are there any occupational hazards to being an author?

Being obsessive and not always in the moment because I’m constantly writing things in my head. Alternating between visions of grandiosity and the despair of possible obscurity and penury.

Have you ever written naked?

No. But what a great idea.

Do you have any hints or tips for aspiring writers?

Keep writing. Befriend great editors. It’s easier than it’s ever been to publish your own work and find readers.

How do you remain sane while working?

Who said I do?

Are you jealous of other writers?

Not so much jealous as curious about what the well-known ones have done to create a wide reach of loyal readers, how they got their books into the hands of the masses.

What is the book that you wished you had written?

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

Do you have any favourite resources you would like to share with our readers?

The blog angelsintheunderworld.com has fantastic resources in the “For Writers” section.

Tea, Coffee, Water, Juice, Wine or Beer … which do you prefer when writing?

Coffee and water all day, beer and tea at night. I write at all hours and I’m usually sipping something.
