What motivates you?
Getting my ebook the exposure/representation I know it deserves. Making my family, friends, and people close to me proud. Signing with a major publishing company. Being able to help my mom and little brother with their finances. Getting my dad the drug counseling he needs. Paying off my student loan. Futhering my education. Improving my writing. Helping other aspiring writers find their target audience.
How do you define creativity?
Creativity is the perfect combination of talent and experience, hardwork and natural ability. It is engaging in a problem from a unique perspective and come up with more efficient solution than anyone else.
Creativity is showing the world how you see it through your eyes, whether it be through literature, film, art, music, sports, or science.
What would your personal success story be?
I would have my own office, with a team of young aspiring writers crafting stories similar to Chaos Company. I know how hard it can be to find time to write, so I would love to give jobs to young writers and give them a space where they can work on their stories and help them get their work to publications. I know there are writing forums and sites that people like to use, but I think sitting with people in a room and creating plots and characters together would be more effective than forums.
When I’m not helping them, I would continue working on my own stories, most likely more unique superhero stories. I would also find time to practice martial arts more frequently. It’s a great exercise and an amazing stress reliever. It also helps me think of great fight scenes for the characters in my stories.
