If there is one thing that motivates me to write, then I would say it is desire. It is the one thing that I love to do the most, and I want to be successful at it. Right now, I only work as a writer/photographer for a local newspaper (my position is called 'stringer', but I hate that term and never have used it.
Fiction is where my heart is though. My dream, which has not faltered since I was seven, is to be a novelist. Fantasy, sci-fi, and horror are where I prefer to work. I write short stories, poems, and once I even wrote a play.
I want to be published, and I want to touch all people with my words.
