"Take a break from your world...visit for a while in mine. Come often. Stay for a spell."
"I've heard one could live without writing...but I don't wanna take that chance."
I was asked how I termed my writing style. At first I had to say I didn't know...I just like to write, period. But then I gave it some thought. If I had to give it a style, I'd say "speculative fiction'.
I'll have a story idea in my head, then allow the fleshing out to begin. I'll start thinking of a fight sequence or dramatic scene...then ask the "what lead up to this" question? I'll form several reasons, then choose the one with the most plausibility. One that makes the reader think, "Well, in theory, I guess that could happen...if..."
To me, that makes for some of the best sci-fi/fantasy storylines. The ones that make you say, "Well, if the conditions are right and such and such and whatnot and stuff." What was the motivation behind the action? Why did he/she do this/that? That gets into character development. Because when the reader starts looking at your character less like a character and more like a person, that's when the magic happens!
For me, writing is more a passion than a business. A form of expression. My thoughts given form, conveyed the way I want. I truly hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
