I positively LOVE your books! i read The Neddiad and adored it!
I have to do a school project over anything in the book and I wanted to do a report over the inspiration. That is if you mind sharing it…
If you don't mind i want you to know that i appreciate it.
Inspiration, huh? Hm. People often ask about that. """"What inspired you to write that?"""" they ask. What happens to me is I get _interested_. I'll have a little idea, or part of an idea, and I will think, """"this is interesting."""" Then I'll start fooling around with the idea, or part of an idea, and it might get more interesting. Then, in the case of a long book, like The Neddiad, I'll start working with characters, and giving them things to think and say. Then it gets really interesting. Once in a while the characters may start saying and thinking things that surprise me! Then it gets more than interesting. Maybe that's inspiration--I don't know--by the time that happens, I'm so busy writing that I'm not likely to notice.
