Author has written 2 stories for General, and Fable.
I love fiction in almost any form. A well developed story with interesting characters and a thought provoking and intense plot line; whether in movie or book format, gives me such a sense of entertainment that I would love to help others find some measure of enjoyment through my own efforts. The thing I love about fiction is the fact that you are making your own universe. It can be wildly unfamiliar or almost identical to reality, but either way it is a realm in which you set forth rules and give life to those who have to follow your rules. I believe that we were modeled after the greatest creator ever and we have been given just the smallest hint of ability and ingenuity to create in such fantastically inventive ways. Our success is based solely on the the inventive ways we express freedom within the rules of our own creative universes.
So whether your writing style is an incredibly thought out process like J.K. Rowlings, or you mainly develop the plot as you go along like Tolkien, who once told a colleague that he wasn't sure at one point in the Lord of the Rings how Frodo and Sam were going to survive, keep your heart focused and your mind open so that your work will produce good fruits.
