How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I veer away from most of the stereotypes and boring build ups. I like the throw the reader into an engaging situation right off the bat, and have the mystery and intensity in the story as soon as I can. I don’t try to make it scary though- I write the story that I think of, and if it happens to be creepy I’ll label it as horror.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Well, I’m actually an aspiring writer too, so I’d just say: WRITE. For crying out loud, just force yourself to write, even if what comes out is a piece of crap. Don’t judge it until it is finished, and DO NOT EDIT UNTIL IT IS FINISHED. Write until it is done, then edit and judge. Read a lot, study a lot, and just do your best to have fun with it. Write what you wanna read. 🙂
I’m Michael, I’m 18 years old, a military brat, and an aspiring author. I’ve written stories since I was like, 5, and have read countless novels and short stories. I write stories that I would want to read. I am very hard on myself and eager to ‘level up’ my writing skills, so I can take a critique and run with it. I hope to be a successful full-time writer, but am aware of how difficult that can be and how long it can take. I’m ready for anything though.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Though I’m only 18, I’ve always been a writer, and this is the first work that I really felt I should publish. I think that the story gives a good feel for my writing style, and is of enough quality and length that when reviewed, it will help me grow as an author. I started writing “The Crow’s Nest” the day I came out of an awful writing drought, and didn’t really stop until it was done.
