After reading it, I was just,'tsk, I want to create something that would express my own world even if It won't be professional at this time.'
For me, I think after reading Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol that kinda planted the seed. I had started writing before that, but after I'd finished reading, it kinda lit a fire under me to take the craft more seriously. I know a lot of people don't like Dan Brown or his writing style but to each their own. Also, when the first season of Game of Thrones came out on HBO, that - along with many other things - made me realize that there's a possibility if your story is good enough it could be picked up by a major studio. Of course, there are MANY factors involved there along with a great bit of luck and a solid team behind you, but I digress.
For you, what book(s) or author(s) made you decide to go down this writing journey?
So that's my little life's little inspiration.
When I was 10 (jesus...it was...1998 I think) I started writing AAMRN's (Ash And Misty Romance Novels). I wrote so much and actually got a little bit of a following. My stories were strictly Pokemon based. When I got a little older, 14 or 15 maybe, I altered all my stories and removed any mention of Pokemon and changed all the character names and made them their own thing. I, sadly, took a long hiatus (you can thank life for that) and abandoned writing for 10-ish years. Voracity, my current fiction on here, is my triumphant return to the literary world! Oh, how I've missed it so.
Thank you, Royal Road, for existing!
I won't name the books in the other category, which were kindle unlimited stories that were either unpleasant to read or just plain boring that made me think 'even I can do better than this'. I started seriously writing after I put down book two in one of those series after suffering through the first one, and haven't looked back since.
There was one moment, though, after I left high school, where I was reading one of Terry Brooks' Shannara books, where I distinctly thought to myself: "I can write as well as this guy can!" It wasn't that I thought the book was bad (I actually love the Shannara books!) but more that I never before considered the possibility that I could be a published writer, too.
I started writing my own novel shortly after.
I just decided that I wanted to try fantasy in my own way, in my own pace where I was not gonna throw every detail in there.
Turns out I really need to be better at story building :')
Pablo Coelho's book The Alchemist was a great inspiration for who knows what. I just know I liked it and I took inspiration.
So its those people, and a lot of music.
