Things that inspire me to write #65: fifteen year old me

 

Reading about Stephanie Meyer earlier this week, I was struck by her comment that she initially wrote Twilight purely for her own enjoyment. I think she may have been on to something there.

I have recently been working on a manuscript for a yet untitled paranormal romance and keep finding myself thinking back to myself as a teenager and what I loved to read. Only after reflecting on Meyer’s comment though did I realize why: because that is who I am writing for. I can’t predict who will find this story interesting enough to pick up, but I know I would have–and there is something very exciting about that.

So thank  you 15 year old me, you inspire me (even if you did have really bad taste in jogging pants).
