Author has written 6 stories for Horror, Love, Life, and Fantasy.
What to say.
I'm 21 years old, and I am in collage for Art.
I have been writing for a long time, most of my stories have been scrapped and thrown away.
My writing varies, I do mainly Horror/Supernatural styled writes.
Inspiration I think comes in many forms. It can come from something as simple as a song or picture, or something more difficult like a life event or perhaps a cryptic message you once came across.
My inspiration comes from everything around me, I try to take in as much of my enviroment as possible and project it into my work.
I have heavy influence from H.P Lovecraft, Stephen King, Aldous Huxley, Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Z. Danielewski, and Max Brooks. To name a few.
Why do I write?
That is actually a really good question. To be clear I was asked this during a Creative Writing class in Highschool. I write because writing allows us to escape from the very fabric of reality and become immersed in a new world where anything you want is possible. I write, not so much to escape this world, but to add to it. To add a sense of the supernatural, horror, fear into a world that knows this only on the boundaries of horrible TV shows and Halloween tricks. I write to create a world where the horror that is brought forth lingers in your mind even after the book ends. I write to scare people.
Other than writing horror and poetry, I like to experiment with other forms of writing. Co-writes are always big for me. If I could write a story with somebody everytime I would. Being able to bounce Ideas back and forth is only helping the creative process.
