What inspires me to write is understanding why some individuals have evil tendencies that hurt others. There are hidden reasons for their behavior. It may be emotional, psychological, or learned behavior.
I carry a pen and a small notepad with me everywhere I go for when inspiration strikes. My electronic notepad on my iPhone is beneficial for me when I forget my notepad. A tip I want to share is for writers to outline. Of course, not every writer should if they are not comfortable with it, but I was taught to outline. After outlining, I then begin to write. As new ideas come to my mind, I then include it within the outline. Sometimes the title of the story changes after the last chapter of my manuscript.
I read general fiction and detective novels. Yet, I mostly read news articles, and online and print magazines. I am intrigued by some of the things I read in the paper. It gives me inspiration for my stories. I also am good at balancing my writing time between my day job and spending time with family. I organize my time by setting a schedule. I cannot become an effective writer if I don’t have balance in my life. Life is not all about writing.
