What inspires you to write?
For me, I love to write. Ever since I was a little kid, I have always enjoyed it. Sometimes I would write horror short stories, while others it would be about a super-hero named after me. But I always enjoyed it, and I loved to learn new words and increase my vocabulary. Nevertheless, towards the end of my high school education, I was just thinking about what I could do with my wriitng, and it popped into my head to try and become an author! Yes, it is much harder to write a book then it seemed, but once I got started, I was on a roll. I do admit that at times, I felt dejected and as if the book would never end. But I had my family, my friends, and the world to inspire me. I had the dream to continue on, and to become an author. So i continued wriitng. And eventually, one day, it got published.
Tell us about your writing process.
First off, I start with a small story outline. I write what I think the storyline should be like, and the overall character analysis. I make a few character, the storyline, and the environment in which the story will take place. I then begin writing my first draft, including the storyling and characters I created in the beginning. Most of the time, however, I come up with new ideas, so I alter the storyline a bit to fit my new plans. And, I admit it usually turns out quite nicely. Eventually, I finish the book, and then I go into my editing/re-writing phase. I read the book, front cover to back cover, and search for every single grammatical error and typing error that can be found. I find most of them, but sometimes I don’t, and I face the fact that no one is perfect. After finishing my second draft, I read it once more, and then further hand it off to a friend or some family to proof-read and give out any indications as to what can be done to make it better. After obtaining the book once more and making final changes, I send it to my publisher and get it published!
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
It depends on the time of day, if people are in the room, etc. In general, if I am writing and I am alone in a room, I think to myself certain scenarios that I could be in and how the characters would respond. I believe it further helps me not only connect to my characters, and to further their personalities, but to allow the readers to connect and become one with the characters as well.
What advice would you give other writers?
I would give some major advice: Do not rush things. Take them one step at a time, and work hard, but slowly, on your book or novel. Make sure it is a great book, not only to yourself, but friends, family, and the world as well. Get some opinion’s on it, and before trying to market or promote your book, at least know it’s worth it.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
After writing for quite some time, and researching my options, I decided to become a self-published author. I felt as if I would have a feeling of higher achievement if I edited, and made the cover, and proff-read it all myself. Of course, there are negatives to self-publishing, as there is negatives and positives to everything, but if I had to do it again (which i will multiple times in the future), I will choose self-publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe that in the future, either near or far, there will be many writer’s to come, each with new ideas, and new stories. Each with new worlds, and new characters. And with each of these, comes the change in publishing. Hopefully, there will be many changes ijn the future, that not only open the door’s to publishing for many writers, but that can allow the readers of the world to be astounded as well.
