What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My dad is a writer so that was my first inspiration. I’ve also been in the corporate world for the last ten years and realized that the business work tends to crush one’s creativity. But while I was getting my masters in liberal studies and learning about new literature pieces and philosophical worlds, I got inspired to write my own.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I let the story flow naturally and characters added based in the plot line. I tried to create interesting and diverse to make sure the reader is interested and is exposed to a wide range of personalities and experiences.
I woke up in panic, breathing heavily and feeling like I was being suffocated.
I just realized all this was just a dream.
The first thing I recalled was how Claire was the only human in this dream. It’s hard to get
over an ended relationship, a lost love, when that person is constantly on your mind, even in your dreams. But that’s what dreams do – pull thoughts and memories from the depths of one’s mind and keep them active and alive, whether we want them to be or not. It keeps us questioning and unable to move forward with our life. But how can I restrain the flame of love if I constantly have Claire on my mind and even in my dreams? It’s hard to move forward when you’re being held back by questions that float spectral in your mind.
It has occurred to me that I may be romanticizing this idea of me and Claire. We had not been together that long. Our relationship ended unexpectedly a couple of years ago. It was one of many short-term encounters. Yet, I seem to keep women in safekeeping somewhere in my mind, so that when I get bored with a relationship that’s not going anywhere – you know the kind, one of those short-term not-meant-to-be relationships, I have the comfort of knowing that I can revisit one of the better past relationships and not find myself alone or without. But Claire was different. Am I romanticizing her? The one that got away, so to speak – the one that still fills my dreams years after she is gone. She’s still in my dreams, in my imagination. I can still smell her scent on my skin sometimes. But she may not, in reality, be what I remember her to be. Memory of her has had time to mellow, to squelch what may have been bad, and latch onto the good and emphasize it, build it up, make it more grand than it may have been, place it on a pedestal and make her the one above all others. Perhaps longing for her, and keeping her memory as such is better than actually being with her.
