I don't really know where I'll start, so I'll start at the obvious point: I love reading. I am one of those people who have their head in the clouds, nose in a book - sound familiar?
I love reading romance, and if I'm not reading it then I'm writing it, and if I'm not doing either then I'm just making up romance stories in my head.
One thing I find very annoying about my own writing is that I never know where it's going to end. I start off a story by just imagining it, writing down the key points, but when I start writing it I just let it go it's own way, so I veer off track. Really annoying - it's like my writing has a mind of its own.
My absolute favourite quotes are:
"I never commit to memory anything that can easily be looked up in a book." - Einstein.
"I came, I saw, I conquered." - Julius Caesar
I really want to help people, but sometimes I just don't know how. I'm very sympathetic though, because I can imagine what they're going through.
I don't ever imagine people - faces; it's feelings that I'm best with. Though if ever one of my books becomes a film (just a writer's dream) the director will go crazy, because I won't know what I want my characters to look like, but everytime he/she shows me a probable person to play a certain character I'll know it wasn't right. The reason behind this, I guess, is because I imagine a character and name him/her before I start thinking of the physical appearance. So far I can only imagine one of my characters, because I based him on a real person.
One bad thing about having an imagination like mine is that I start a book full of enthusiasm, I write about three/four long chapters, and then my mind wanders and I find myself imagining another story, and then I start writing it, afraid that the plot will run away, and I leave story no.1 for story no.2 - a great example for that is Retributive Love (look at my projects further down): I wrote five chapters of that, rewrote three chapters, got an idea for a sequel, Fallen from Space and started writing that. One chapter into that, I get the idea for the third book (Imprisoned) in what's probably going to turn into a saga. Then I look at Retributive Love and decide that the ten chapters I've already written just NEED to be redone because I've done some more brainstorming. Get the picture?
I mean, right now, I have at least fourteen unfinished books (as in, only a few pages to only a few chapters - and the last time I updated my profile it was only seven projects) - and that's not counting the different versions.
Oh, and, by the way, for anyone who's asked me to read their projects, please remember that I'm a writer too and might not get to reading them straight away - thank you! :)
- I love writing.
