For years, I have been reading and writing zombie apocalypse stories and read up on other types of apocalypses. Then it hit me... HOW DO YOU SURVIVE THE APOCALYPSE?!
My writing. It's my escape. The escape from the darkness in the world and the lack of control I have over it. When I write, I create the darkness I want and it gives me a sense of control. This control helps me become a better writer. One thing I know—when I write, I am me.
