If possible, your age?
When did you start writing?
Honestly I have been writing since I could write my name. I clearly remember the concept of the first story I ever completed. I was approximately seven years old at the time and I constructed an original tale about the origin of the Easter bunny; a piece my step father had found exceptionally humorous.
Do you write by hand or use a word processing program? If so, which hand/which program?
Typically I write everything out in Microsoft word. Although, when a wave of inspiration hits me in an environment lacking technology, I'll jot my ideas down in the traditional "Paper & Pen" format.
Which perspective is easier to write: Male, female, or other?
Neither perspective is particularly difficult for me to write about. My preferences are greatly dependent on what I am writing about. In most of my stories I develop a male leads, though. As far as poetry is concerned, the perspective varies greatly.
Which is easier to write - basically good or basically evil characters?
I think the answer finds itself in that regard.
Is it easier to write first person, second person, third person limited, or third person omniscient?
That all depends on how I want the reader to perceive my work. Taking into consideration how much I enjoy readers taking what they can from my work, I find third person omniscient works best.
What do you have trouble writing?
Positive love poems... generally anything overtly positive does not come naturally to me. That is not to say I am a negative person, I just do not feel inspired to write about how happy I am, least of all, how great my love life is going.
What do you like to write?
Anything I feel passionate about strikes the best kind of muse. Typically anything that makes me angry, depressed, frustrated... I love to be sarcastic, blunt, and vile in my work.
How do you often begin your writing?
I hardly begin every piece in a consistent format. I find my poetry follows the flow of my feelings to give the reader a taste of my meaning.
What is your writing habit that you are aware of?
Honestly, I feel this is more a strength in that I gain intellectual readers, but I am aware that it tends to defeat the reasoning behind my ambiguity. I write in a manner that is not only abstract, but also potentially confusing. I mask a lot of my meaning, on purpose, mind you, but I find I bury meaning far too deeply within my words.
Take what you see and make it as ugly or as beautiful as you want. There are no limits to creativity.
How long does it take to finish a piece?
As soon as I begin a piece, I cannot quit until it is complete. I take about ten minutes to square off a poem. Stories take much longer, of course; depending on the length of the story, it may take me an hour, a few days, or even a few years to complete.
What music do you listen to while you write?
When I do listen to music, it must be a song that remains consistent with what I am trying to bring across to the reader.
How long does it take you to come up with an idea?
I don't try to force my ideas. I let them come to me. Sometimes I consistently receive muse whereas other times I go days or months without writing.
Your favorite genre(s) when writing?
I lean toward realism, but I am definitely not limited to it.
Your favorite genre(s) when reading?
Whatever mood strikes my fancy.
Your favorite writers?
I find it difficult to remain loyal to any writer. I float around.
What kind of writing are you aiming for?
Honestly, that depends on my mood. The intent behind my pieces differs every time I write. Generally speaking, I just hope readers understand and can relate.
