interview: Janet Tay
Write This: You sent this to the write this inbox: "Not sure what to make of the dismembered stories, to be honest! Although it certainly fits the horror/Halloween theme." How much more on the fence could you be?
Janet Tay: I think the writers should have been asked whether they would mind their stories being ripped up and mangled.
Write This: Do you mind if we edit that? Tell us a little about yourself. Your bio informs us that you were a "litigation lawyer" but left that profession, much like a renunciate, to pursue that which cannot be caught. Are you a star-crossed lover of lost causes?
Janet Tay: That's a very accurate description.
Write This: I know.
Hinge: i better watch what i say here. what made you jump from lawyering to malaysia and then back to lawyering before becoming a malaysian editing person?
Janet Tay: The jump was really just from lawyering to editing. And the reason for that--most likely masochism and a fair bit of insanity. [ed- (translation) I'm annoyed at this interview and I don't know what you're after so I'm just going to give this boiler-plate answer and hope it ends there]
Write This: Between masochism and insanity, which serves you better as a writer, and, as a corollary, as a lawyer?
Write This: This is a good question. I hope it is not going unanswered.
Hinge: i hope she answers it.
Write This: How would Janet have answered this question?
