Who or what inspired you to become a writer?


Ever since I was a little boy, I've been fascinated with authors, literature, and writing. I was originally inspired by a lower-lexiled version Herman Melville's _Moby Dick_. Dr. Seuss' rhymed lines and frivolous vocabulary fueled my passion. Later, Thoreau's existentialism and Emmerson's essays opened up my mind. Today, I aspire for Frost's simplicity, Carol's imagination, Poe's suspense, and Silverstein's revelations. My writing community keeps me inspired as I aspire to seize a seat amidst giants. As they carry me on their shoulders, one word at a time, I beget brain across the page.
