Tolkien, Salvatore, and Brooks.

Tolkien's world building (races, languages, mythology and history) along with his love of including songs and poetry, was what first attracted me to fantasy writing.

Salvatore and Brooks were the first two writers that had a genuine fantasy feel that I could escape in but the "in your face" action scenes of magic casting, descriptive swordplay, and brutal deaths.

I'm a big fan of the fantasy genre in general but those three have to be my top ones.

Write.

Even if you don't want to, don't feel like it, don't feel inspired.

You have to set down and start to get ANYWHERE. Some of my best writing days are when I'm not in the mood to write. (less)

“There was a massive organ, with keys of bone, and pipes blackened and sheer rising up from below the floor out of the top of the massive tower. A hunched figure bellowed over the keys.”
J.T. Williams, Half-Bloods Rising

“Elves are curious creatures. They require companionship of another or they simply fade into the woods, forgotten like a child's play toys when they come of age. The Estate is a prison to her.”
J.T. Williams, Rogues of Magic:

“Where is the Barb King at?”
J.T. Williams, Stormborn Saga: Guardian of the Seas

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora

“It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

“There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

“Sane is boring.”
R. A. Salvatore
