"What inspires you to write?"
Many things. Music, movies, tv shows, things I've seen, people I've meet, experiences I've had, quotes I've read, dreams I've had. A million different things. Every story I've started came from somewhere, and sometimes, it's just from my own imagination, like when I'm laying in bed, unable to sleep, and I get an idea. It always starts off simple, and always becomes very, very complicated.
Also, feedback. When I get honest feedback for my stories, most of which is positive and negative together - which is good! - like, "It's a great story, but needs a lot of editing." I love hearing that! It makes me feel so good. I KNOW Aubrey Nightingale needs A LOT of work, and serious editing. I have kick ass ideas, but sometimes I have a hard time getting those ideas onto paper right, so my sentences sound awkward or I used the wrong verb, or I use too many commas. (I have a problem with commas.)I also tend to overthink things. One of the many problems with having anxiety. I over complicate the structure of a sentence, edit it one hundred times, and it still never looks right, so I just leave it a mess. Le sigh. Eventually, I will get this under control and be able to finish the damn book.
