A twitterview with Steven Hislop

@ChloeHenderson9: Normally I contact ya’ll when I want to twitterview you, but if anyone wants to come to me please please tweet at me for a twitterview :)

@CandyCupcake92: Hi Chloe @THE_OAM in Marchmont would like to be twitterviewed :)

@ChloeHenderson9: Hiya, are you free for a twitterview just now,or should I come back later?

@THE_OAMAvailable today apart from between 12 and 1 if any good Chloe?

@ChloeHenderson9: how about now?


@ChloeHenderson9: great! an easy, little self-indulgence to start: what is your favourite word(s) and why?

@THE_OAMFamily time…self-explanatory

@ChloeHenderson9: aww, that is such a beautiful way of looking at the question.

where do you think the value of storytelling sits in our modern world?

@THE_OAMHighly as there r 2 many serious situations happening around the world so it’s important to stay “light-hearted” so 2 speak

@ChloeHenderson9: how would you describe the importance of reading and writing in everyday life?

@THE_OAMAgain highly as technology (like this) is taking over and the younger generation are missing out that importance

@ChloeHenderson9: ooo you touched on my next question! so, with your answer in mind…

@ChloeHenderson9: what do you think the effects of the internet (tweeting, blogging, etc.) are on our literacy and our literature?

@THE_OAMWow tough questions haha. I think it has its merits but as you can see from this you can get used to shorthand ie 2, r etc

@ChloeHenderson9: on the whole, do you consider the internet a positive or negative thing in relation to our language, literature and literacy?

@THE_OAMProbably a positive in the grand scheme of things but a negative in terms of language, literature and literacy

@ChloeHenderson9: do you mourn the loss of the handwritten letter? or do you like instant digitial responeses? or do you still write letters?

@THE_OAMI wouldn’t say I mourn it but times change&digital response is the future. Ive written letters recently but it felt strange

@ChloeHenderson9: last one: if there was one book/poem/tweet/song/blog/etc. that you think everybody in the world should read, what would it be?

@THE_OAM:  I genuinely don’t think I can answer that 1 but I do believe that every1 has a song that they remember for their own reason

@ChloeHenderson9: thank you very much for this little twitterview, it has been fantastic and your thoughts have been so useful :)

@THE_OAM:  My pleasure. I enjoyed it and there were some tough questions there.
