My favorite genre is binge reading stories from the library, spending all day in bed swearing I’ll stop after one more chapter, developing massive, unhealthy crushes on fictional characters. My favorite genre is whatever I can get my hands on.
Writing is wonderful. It’s like playing God, sculpting worlds, forming new people from nothing but your fingers against the keyboard, giving life to the two-dimensional creations of your own mind, weaving spells of love and pain and the whole spectrum of human emotion.
I love being a writer, but that’s not why I do it.
I do not have a half-naked Greek Goddess of muse and creativity lying across my bed. Inspiration doesn’t work like that.
Sometimes, we are faced with the everyday human suffering that can throw a wrench into even the most distinguished of plans. Crossing our t’s and dotting our i’s cannot prevent life from taking its course.
