Q: What’s something unique you do to get in the head space to write?

A: I take time to be alone. I find a quiet place and empty out my mind. Once my mind is still then I am able to focus on my writing.

Q: How do you develop a story?

A: Basically what I do is think about what I want the story to do. I write an idea down and then develop it into an outline. I break up my outline into chapters and flesh out the story. From there I do a type of brainstorming. Finally I think about the characters and what I think their interactions would be like.

Q: What is something important for you to have while you write?

A: Music. It not only helps me concentrate by drowning out the surrounding world, but it also helps to set a mood in a scene I’m working on.

Q: What inspires a story you write?

A: Life. I can be anywhere or doing anything and something happens which sparks my imagination. Usually something that I believe others will understand and relate to like I have.

Q: Advice you live by?

A: That would be KISS or Keep It Simple, Silly. I really believe this is the best thing to do in life. Sometimes I try and complicated things and I end up missing what’s right in front of me. So I’ve learned to keep it simple. I believe this fact has helped me a lot in my writing.
