One of my favorite authors is Stephen King. When I was a young teenager. I read The Shining. I was so pulled in by the way he writes, it feels like I'm there watching the story unfold. So when I started writing I decided that, that was how I wanted to write. I wanted to pull the reader in. Offer as much detail as I possibly can. From sights and sounds, to smells and feelings. I want the reader to see what I see in my stories. I want the reader to feel what I feel in my poetry. In my erotic stories and scenes, I want the reader to think to them selves. "Wow now that is something I want to try."
I have so many thoughts running through my head on a daily basis it's hard to focus if I don't get them out. I find that writing gives me a peace, a stillness that's not usually there. When I'm writing I try to project myself into the scene and capture each detail. For example. If I'm writing about a woman in a park. I picture her on a wooden bench, a live oak tree, her hands folded softly in her lap. I picture the lines of her face,, the color and texture of her hair. I try to figure out what she is feeling. Is she sad? Happy? Is she Lonely? I'll picture the color of the grass, the smell of the season. I I imagine it like I'm watching a movie.
In short, I do not write solely for myself. I write for the reader. It is often said that a person will curl up with a good book when they want to take a break from reality. I want to bring them to an alternate reality. One where the can escape from the stresses of life.
