The entire concept of this blog is to remain anonymous and generate fantastic short stories. I love this blog. Check it out.
Tell your readers a
little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to
school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.
I grew up in the Midwest and now live in the
South. I graduated from a prestigious high school and went to an in-state university.
I’ll have to leave a lot of the detail vague since, again, I’d prefer not to
reveal my true identity until perhaps later.
What inspired you to
author this book?
This book/story came about 1st more as a PR
venture for my startup. I wanted to tell a story about my life. Still, as I
slowly started writing, I realized that maybe I wanted to share this story for
my healing and my inner child who dreamed of writing their own book or movie.
Life has been both magical and tragic. I think something we can all relate to.
These past few years have been quite desperate and divisive, and I wanted to
create something to show that in the grand scheme of life, we are all connected
by our shared experiences. Whether we take time to ever self-reflect, to
acknowledge our mistakes, the pain we may have inflicted on others, the hurts
we were dealt...those hard truths we must face to grow...I just wanted people
to see that they are not alone and that we are all going thru it.
Where did you get the
inspiration for your book’s cover?
The book’s cover was AI, created by an artist
Who has been the most
significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
I’ve always written, mostly poetry, since I
was a child. I studied creative writing as a minor but wanted something a bit
more judicial for my major since I was very focused on rectifying injustices in
the world. I suppose my startup also focuses on creating better environments
for others, but I can’t get into the specifics here. The most significant
influence would be all those who’ve affected me throughout my life. A boring
answer but, all the same, a fact.
What were the struggles
or obstacles you overcame to get this book written?
It’s a struggle every time I post. I wonder if
my message will resonate with anyone. The fear of exposing myself in all its
terrible, excellent form. Will I be outcasted by society? There’s a lot of
overcoming of anxiety that goes into putting yourself out there, and I can only
hope that the audience can show some grace in that respect.
Tell your readers about
It’s just a typical story. It could be about
you, me, your next-door neighbor, or even your enemy.
Who is your target
audience, and why?
I believe due to the graphic nature of the
content/future content, the target audience should be over 18. Perhaps those
around 40 with a bit of life experience under their belt may also find the
What do you consider your
greatest success in life?
Surviving the things that I’ve survived.
Establishing a startup from scratch and wielding an influence over areas I
never dreamt possible. Most important to me is being able to finally
self-reflect and relearn who I truly am as a person.
What one unique thing
sets you apart from other writers in your genre?
I honestly can’t say if I’m anything special,
not in my genre or otherwise. Perhaps if anything, the way I perceive this
world, after everything I’ve been thru, I still can see life as a magical and
