My favourite writing quote and how it inspired me:
I have two actually that have really stuck with me.
Sic Parvis Magna, which in Latin means: “Greatness from small beginnings.”
This is more of a general quote than specifically just writing but I interpret it towards my journey as a writer/author. This is, no shame, from one of my favorite video game franchises: Uncharted. Once I had heard it, it had ignited that love of adventure and the small beginnings that start before the event that could very well change your life. Hopefully for the better of course.
“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.”
I never found out who said the quote but I want to shake their hand. This is something I kept saying to myself over and over again. My love for writing and my dream of becoming an author was something I had always dreamed about. Any other job or career choice was, in my mind, a hindrance. I wanted nothing more than to be a writer. It was difficult because I always had to choose between what was practical and what called to my soul. It’s something I think about almost constantly, and so I knew I had to just go for it.
How the quote get me into writing, helped me to develop my writing style or attitude:
The quotes definitely helped me as far as kicking my butt into gear. It ignited and continues to reignite the passion in me everyday, and I truly feel like I plugged my passion and soul into each story I write. I don’t like to write what’s hot or popular at the moment. I like to write what my heart is telling me to write.
What I am writing at the moment/working on:
I am currently working on the first draft in the second book in my ‘Skorravik Trilogy: Forbidden Guides.’ ‘To No End’ is the first book in the trilogy. I am also in the process of writing up the outline for my dark fantasy novel and a children’s book. I am kind of an overachiever when it comes to writing and I have to remind myself, finish what I start first. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
‘To No End’ is about a girl that goes back in time to save her father. She is sent back and time and involuntarily thrown into a war driven by a villainous woman that she had no idea she, herself, would ever be apart of.
‘Forbidden Guides,’ without giving too much away, is a continuation of the girls story. They must travel to a place that could have the answer to defeat the villainous woman, but not everything or everyone is as they seem.
Dark fantasy and children’s book is still a surprise.
