Goodreads Author

Melbourne, Australia




Member Since
June 2009

Rhiannon Hart remembers writing before she could read, puzzling over the strange squiggles in Jeremiah and the Dark Woods by Janet and Alan Ahlberg and putting her own words in their places. Her first love was Jareth the Goblin King at the tender age of eight. She wrote fan fiction in high school but she'd never admit to it out loud, so don't ask. When she's not reading or writing she is belly dancing, chasing after other people's cats, or putting the pedal to the floor at her sewing machine. She grew up in north-western Australia and currently resides in Melbourne, where she works in marketing. Rhiannon has been published in the Australian Book Review, Magpies and Viewpoint and blogs at http://rhiannon-hart.blogspot.com/.

Hi Cintia,

Thank you so much for asking this question. Inspiration is one of the most important parts of story writing, because, as you say, you can't write without it. (Or can you?) For inspiration, I collect small ideas that I piece together into bigger ideas. I might visit a place that I think would make a good setting, and I combine that with a situation I read about in the paper and person that I meet (and then fictionalise!) I'm also always thinking about the audience that I want to write for and what they would want to read about, and I try not to concern myself with the latest genre craze. Because I write for teenagers I often think about what I loved to read when I was that age.

While you're waiting for inspiration to strike (and keeping a journal with all your little ideas to combine into bigger ones) you might like to try writing exercises every other day, or keeping a personal diary or blog. If you keep your fingers and your mind focused on writing then you'll be in the habit of writing when your inspiration comes. Don't wait for the inspiration. Writing is about 80% habit.

Very sorry to hear of Dever's passing today. I must have read a dozen or so of these adventure game books when I was younger (and almost never cheated when I turned the page to find I'd been killed by a Vordak.)

(Make that almost always.)

Vale, Joe.

“It was strapless, the bodice peacock-blue and edged in gold, full skirted at the front and gathered into an elaborate, foaming bustle of satin and peacock feathers at the back. I insisted that every inch of bare skin was powdered with gold: my shoulders, décolletage, and the lower part of my face. The golden mask would cover my eye, and my lips were painted with more gold. I carried a golden fan that, when it was opened, revealed hundreds of eyes and looked exactly like a peacock's tail.”
Rhiannon Hart, Blood Song

“You're doing well, you know," Rodden said.
I snorted. He'd not even broken a sweat and I was about to become the first girl to drown on dry land.”
Rhiannon Hart, Blood Storm

“To be wounded or die at the hands of one who is meant to love you. Is there a more miserable thing in the world?”
