Sidney Anne Harrison is a writer formerly labeled as unpublished, but now that Please Welcome Mr. Arthur Bean is out in the world, she can graduate to the title of self-published author. Raised by a screenwriter, writing has always been in Sidney's blood. She's been writing and reading like a fiend since she was five years old.  Like many of her favorite books, Sidney's writing is fantastical and aware of the current situation of the world. She challenges genre with unique characters and wide-reaching themes. Sidney is inspired by authors like Octavia Butler, Stephen King, and Neil Gaiman. ...more

It is true that creative energy ebbs and flows in unpredictable ways, but when I struggle with a certain story, I tend not to think of it as my own "block." More so I envision it as a river that has gone shallow after a drought. This drought could be caused by outside sources, such as my day job draining me, my personal life putting strain on me, or my own creative juices simply needing a break. And then rainfall happens, the river swells, and I am able to write freely again (because even during a drought I'm still writing, even if it may not be my best writing). I guess how I deal with it is to not put too much pressure on myself to "get over it." Rather I try identify whatever it is that's draining me, or whatever the problem with my writing is, and either give myself a break or put effort into fixing it.(less)

I can understand certain events and people better because I spend a lot of my time crafting stories and characters. Secondly, being a writer allows me to relate to people all over the world. If my writing significantly impacts at least one reader in all of my career, then I will consider myself an enormous success.(less)
