Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
We make decisions everyday based on our experiences and influences. As writer's ,whether we realize it or not, we share these same influences with others.
Here are some of things that have influenced my writing.
WHAT I WATCH
It's no surprise with the availability of TV and movies nowadays that it would influence my writing. This is a Geeky blog, and I tend to obsess over the things I watch.
WHAT I READ
As a kid it started with Dr Seuss. A time came when I would have to order books from Waldenbooks. It was all those Doctor Who books put out by Target Books . Now that we live in the digital age it is easier to get and read books. With blogging I have had the privilege of reading multiple authors that I have found. Yes, you influence me.
WHAT I LIVE
My Kids...They influence my writing more than they will ever know. I would include my wife but she would kill me if I put a picture of her up. ;-)
I would like to think that I influence my children, but to be honest they tend to rub off on me also...
So, there you have it three influences on my writing.
What is it that influences your writing?
