About William H. Dewayne:
William is a proud, borderline nerd living in the American South. His hobbies include reading anything from Stephen King’s The Stand to Natsuki Takaya’s Fruits Basket, laughing at jokes only he finds funny, not remembering what he’s supposed to do, and sitting for hours in front of a laptop hoping to finish that next chapter.
What inspires you to write?
Inspiration takes many forms but mine has a typical appearance. Mostly, it comes from something I've read or watched. The wheels turn in my head as story ideas come together. Sometimes, this happens multiple times to the same story, where new elements will be added at later dates. I start writing it as soon as I have the time.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
Tell us about your writing process.
Typically, I sit down and write as it comes to me. I write where the story flows the easiest, hopping from chapter to chapter as the story comes together. However, I sometimes make outlines beforehand. This helps remember story ideas that I couldn’t implement at the time.
Most of my work is in a word document but I write notes and occasional outlines on any paper I have.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
No. There's not much interaction. I write them down. They do as I say.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write every day.
Work on one story until it's done.
Put your work out as soon as possible.
Don't waste time.
Don't waste money.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Self-publishing was the easiest route to get my work out. Who knows how long I'd wait for an agent to call? It took time to come around to the idea, but I'm glad I did.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
No idea. I hope it isn't becoming as terrible as the comics industry. Can't imagine that market getting better outside of the indie scene.
What genres do you write?: Fantasy, Young Adult, Gamelit, litRPG
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
