Why do I write? I love to explore new worlds and meet new people. I love magic and adventure and possibilities. I love that when reading as well. I have authors I love who write book series in fantastic worlds with amazing characters.
Tomorrow I begin my hopefully final edit of my novel. To be truthful, I can’t wait to make everything as quality as I can and have an actual paperback book. I want to page through it and adventure with my characters all over again, again and again. I have done this with other authors’ books as well, with characters I love.
It’s one of the big things that drew me to writing, actually. I always get myself lost in a world, whether one of my own design or with my fanfiction. Designing my own world for the series I’m writing has been an adventure in itself. He got me a notebook so I can make notes on everything, from the places I make to the people involved.
Now that I’m getting the sequel on its way, I can develop the world more. Things that played some role in the first book get explained and explored more in the second book, and probably more books after that. Being able to flesh out aspects of a world is exciting. What do I want to happen? Is it a nice place? Are there social issues? It’s all up to me. Do I want to make the world more mixed, with some desirable and some less desirable traits? It’s all up to me!
I’ve been writing stories for myself for years. Now, I’m a published author. No genre is off limits, though I have some favorites.
