You, Stephen King, and J. K. Rowling

They’ve both written epic fantasy series and they both inspire me. I’m not sure if I want to write a fantasy series, but I admire anybody who can write that many books and keep characters going, not to mention keeping track of everybody and what happened in previous books.

My first novel, Wounded Bride, is the first in a series of around twenty detective novels. I need to do what all series writers must in order to keep my series consistent but interesting.

J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series and Stephen King’s Dark Tower series are worth reading or rereading.

Now I’ll explain why you’re in the title of this post. You inspire me to blog and to write fiction. I don’t know your name or what you like to do, but when you read my posts or stories, it inspires me to create more of them. Stories and blogs are human things, and it takes humans to inspire them. If I lived alone in a world without other humans, there would be no stories for me to write, no blog posts needed, and very little to inspire me. So given that, I’d prefer not to keep thinking about such a world where stories and blog posts are irrelevant, but go back to writing and being inspired.
