About Jeremy Williams:
Jeremy Williams was born with a thirst for knowledge. From his earliest days he was always experimenting or reading.
He attended college and attained a bachelors degree in Aerospace Engineering with a minor in Mathematics.
During his days in college he began experimenting with building worlds through words. He found he had a knack for building expansive worlds.
But he also found his mind often outran his fingers when creating worlds. He ended up skipping entire paragraphs by accident and would have to go back and add them.
He ended up loving writing and has been doing it ever since. He found his favourite genres were urban and dark fantasy and he enjoys writing in both.
He has several published books and many more in various stages of completion that are waiting to be published.
He wants to compete in the Summer Olympic games one day as well. His favourite sports are martial arts and swimming.
He hopes to support himself with his passion for writing and his degree one day.
What inspires you to write?
Usually my dreams. In fact every single thing I’ve written has been based on a dream I’ve had. My dreams vary wildly and I find the ideas are often wonderfully terrifying. I always write down the ideas and, as of this moment, my folder has just over one-hundred unique ideas.
Tell us about your writing process.
I’m definitely a seat of the pants writer. I plan out the most basic plotline possible and then I start writing. It usually takes about a week to finish a story, unless it’s a short story. Then I go back and edit the story for flow. After that I go back again and edit for grammar/spelling, then one more edit for flow. Then another edit for content. Then I do one last edit for grammar/spelling.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I actually pretend I am my character while I’m writing them. It doesn’t matter if it’s a minor side character who’s only action is to run away from something, I pretend I am them while I’m writing the lines about them. It can make it a little difficult when I’m writing the antagonist though.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing. Writing is a process and you always improve as you write. So keep writing.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I heard about Amazons self-publishing service. At first I was skeptical, but it turned out to be a very good process. I’m very glad it was created, because traditional publishing is very hard to get into.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I feel that indie publishing is the future, but traditional publishing hopefully won’t go away. Traditional publishing routes have more support with regards to marketing and sales, which writers with severe social anxiety can use. I do hope they become more open though, because traditional publishing is currently extremely closed-minded.
