I didn't get into writing until high school where I mostly did fanfics under fanfiction.net and fictionpress.com. Once I graduated high school I wrote Defy the Gods and published it as an e-book in 2005. My creative inspiration took off after that and I have made it my mission to inspire young authors not just to write but to publish. The industry isn't what it was and I am a strong believer in self-publishing. If you write it, they should read it.
As a writer I am always inspired by dreams or songs and I have at least two other projects in the works at any one time. If you get stagnant on one, you should find something else to work on in the meantime and your creative juices will keep flowing.
More About Me
I am a Cancer which is governed by the moon so I usually write better during a full moon. You will also notice that the moon usually has a part to play in many of my tales. I'm a big believer in back stories, which I called them origin stories\. Our past is what forges our character but it is also the main factor in character development. If character doesn't have an interesting past, then they get stagnant and boring. A character that doesn't change doesn't have a story worth reading.
