I have enjoyed reading since I was a small child, but I didn't first start writing until I was a freshman in high school, when my English teacher assigned me to write a poem for class. It was with that assignment that I found my passion in the literary world. I wrote dozens of dark themed poems over the next few years until at the age of 19 I started writing fiction. The daunting, but exciting, task of delving into a world of my own creation inspired me to start my first book, After The Last Battle. ...more

To me, writer's block is when ideas just stop flowing and even the most uncreative people always have ideas flowing through their heads, its only a matter of making the most of those ideas. The closest thing to writer's block that I ever get is when I just don't feel like writing and, more often than not, the solution to that problem is just to start writing. Within a few minutes I'm usually so involved in writing that I lose track of time and am almost late for work.(less)

However, the biggest thing I can recommend is to realize and accept some hard truths about writing: It takes lots of patience. It took me a year to write my book and another year to get it published - and I self-published; it could take longer with traditional publishing. It takes a LOT of work and dedication. If I only wrote when I felt like it then it would've take even longer to write; at times I had to force myself to write even when I'd rather be doing something else. Self-publishing is expensive. It costs thousands of dollars to get your book edited and published and thousands more to market the book, stay diligent. What I constantly told myself throughout the writing and publishing process was that I refused to take shortcuts and I refused to go cheap. I wouldn't risk the success of my book simply because I went cheap and didn't get my book edited or refused to use paid advertising. With all of that being said, writing has been very rewarding and I can't recommend it enough to those who have a passion for it.(less)
