I'm always working on multiple projects at the same time (I'm slow at revising). I don't force myself to write unless I'm in the mood because if you're bored, then your readers will be able to tell.

Sometimes I have to stop writing completely for a week or two and go to my other hobbies of drawing, listening to music (playing the guitar), and watching TV. Those activities can bring inspiration to a certain story idea that may get me motivated to start a new project or go back to my old project.(less)

I love getting my creativity down on paper, and I love getting away with observing people. Some people look creepy staring, but I look cool LOL. I could get lost in my mind all day, and there's no better feeling.(less)

Hola. Do you like horror?

Do you like creepy? Do you like handsome lead singers of popular boy bands?


If you do, then head on over to the talented author’s Avrin Kelly’s blog, Wicked Shorts, and check out my short story: Lars’s Muse.


Keep smiling,


Yawatta Hosby


P.S. It’d be cool to hear what you think if you read it

“No, she's been killing me with kindness." She pointed her finger in his face. "There's a difference, and if you didn't have her on a pedestal, you could tell the difference.”
Yawatta Hosby, Something's Amiss

“Poe, come on. Don't be like this." She avoided his gaze, and that was killing him. He'd rather she yell at him than give him nothing at all.”
Yawatta Hosby, Something's Amiss

“Grayson figured the Aliens R Us crew would want to spend the majority of their time near the open field because rumor had it, if you stayed the night at the fire pit and glanced over, you'd see a beam of light touch the ground.”
Yawatta Hosby, Six Plus One

“Are you always a smartass?'

Nope. Sometimes I'm asleep.”
Jim Butcher, Blood Rites

“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
John Cheever

“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

“Good books don't give up all their secrets at once.”
Stephen King

“A short story is a different thing altogether – a short story is like a quick kiss in the dark from a stranger.”
Stephen King, Skeleton Crew
