Science Fiction

Mind boggling

5. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Don’t have a favorite song, A CHANGE IS GOING TO COME by Sam Cooke because to me it’s telling bad times don’t last forever.

6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

No, but the one that inspired me to write SAPO by Robert Beatty

It was a site that challenges you to pick a unique topic to write about.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

I’d rather try and fail than fail to try. Never stop writing despite rejections and write what you are passionate about. Don’t let anyone tell you what to write. Believe in yourself.
