What made you want to write?
I have always found writing cathartic and it helps to get everything in my imagination out, from mental health to fiction stories. When I got out of High School I realized this was something I wanted to take seriously and have written with a purpose since.
Where do you write?
I write where I have the space. A desk in the corner of the living room or on a couch or at the dinning table, preferably with headphones.
Why are you not published?
I like to take my time and really work on what I am writing. Publishing is a long process and I do not want to give my readers a illegible printed book.
Do you have to go to college to be a writer?
No. All you really have to do is write fiercely and diligently. I go to University because it is something I have always wanted to do and I consume knowledge.
