Q1. Why do You write?

Answer: I suppose the quick answer would be: because I can and because I'd like to become good enough to make money at it and to teach my children that it's never too late to do anything.

Q2. What do you find hardest about writing?

Answer: Increasingly, I think just finding the time to sit down and do it. Also, figuring out the technical aspects of submissions, etc....

Q3. Where do you get your inspiration?

Answer: Literally – everywhere! People, life, memories, music, nature, love, other's works – there is no end to inspiration if you look, think or feel.

Q4. What genre are your books?

Answer: Wow. I'd hate to think that my stories or work are limited to any one or two or even thirty genres.

I suppose if I had to pick one, it would be General Literature(Gen-Lit), since it's fiction that includes romance, mystery, action, YA etc.... I've written and posted almost everything but vampire and other monster stories on Wp.

Not much Sci-fi – yet but dabbled a little in fantasy, and I also write non-fiction essays and such. Anyone who has been on my site knows I write most kinds of poetry.

Q5. What is your favorite quote?

Answer: I don't know if it's my favorite but it has probably saved me on more occasions than I'll ever know... and it is the one I keep trying to get my kids to memorize, as someone made me do. It's from Shakespeares' play:

As You Like It – Act II Scene I:

"Sweet are the uses of adversity which like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head; and this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything. I would not change it."

Q6. Do you have any favorites among your writings?

Answer: Haha - Now that you ask, I feel proudest my fiction and on Wattpad, my short stories. I do have some decent poetry here, and the Limericks aren't too bad but there are far more consistent poets on Wattpad, than I.

My friends, @seasofme & @OwainGlyn come to mind.

But as I said, it's really my short stories that I feel are strongest. I guess my current favorites are: 'Prelude' and 'Wally,' which is posting now. Some of my male readers have liked, 'Night of the Spirits.'

I thank you, very much, Thomas - @5ifthproject - for giving me this opportunity.


Bonus question added. This option was offered to everyone.
